Key Views

  • Interest rate rises in 2016 and onwards will significantly impact consumer spending on vehicles given that UK households remain highly overleveraged and the car market has become very reliant on auto loan-financed purchases. This will mean Commercial vehicles outperform passenger car sales.

  • Falling dealership profitability and the likelihood of the used car market experiencing an oversupply will significantly limit the growth potential for the passenger car market over the next five years.

  • Vehicle production to gain from export growth to recovering EU region and from new production runs of passenger cars at Nissan and Honda Motor plants.

  • The Brexit scenario is the major risk the industry will face in 2016 with a British exit from the EU having lasting negative impacts on the industry.
