Powered Two Wheeler & other L-Category New Vehicle Registration Figures for July 2021

MCIA today released the July month and year to date new vehicle registration figures for the Powered two, three and light four-wheel sector (L-Category).

Continuing from the positive year to date, July has proven to be yet another impressive month for the sector, where the month closed at 12,437 new registrations. Whilst this is 11.6% down when compared to July 2020, last year the market in July was over 40% up compared to 2019, meaning July 2021 still represents a 25% growth over what would be considered a normal year, as in 2019.  

The first seven months of 2021 are now tracking at a positive 21% compared to the previous year, within this figure, there is fantastic growth from most key segments but with particular strong performance in Adventure, Modern Classic, Touring and Scooters styles.

Electric Powered Two Wheelers (e-PTW) continue to break all previous sales records by recording yet another “sales busting” performance.  Year to date e-PTW sales have exceeded 3,300 units, which is three times the volumes at the same point in 2020.

Following the publication of the Government’s decarbonisation plan, where the sector is finally being  recognised as a key part of the future of transport, MCIA will be working very closely with key departments to ensure the opportunities for growth in the sector can be fully realised.             

Tony Campbell, Chief Executive of MCIA said: “The year continues to impress, whilst Industry was expecting a buoyant market, we have been surprised at just how good the figures are. 2020 was small capacity / light weight product dominated as users looked for a safe and socially distance method of travel, 2021 is proving to see incredible growth across all segments.”
