Rocketing Registrations kick off 2022

MCIA have today released the L-Category registration figures for January 2022.  January has shown incredible growth from the partial lock down of January 2021 as the month-on-month registrations rocket across the sector.  

With L-Category vehicle registrations ahead of the pre-pandemic levels, the industry is taking full advantage of the high demand by overcoming the challenges faced from component and staffing shortages, to shipping and changing legislation. Today’s figures are a clear demonstration that this sector can, and will play a vital role in everyday transport and a buoyant leisure pursuit.

Following the incredibly successful launch of the joint Government, MCIA and Zemo sector Action Plan ‘Realising the Full Potential of Zero Emission Powered Light Vehicles, where Trudy Harrison MP spoke with passion about her support for the Action Plan and her vision for a net zero future, it’s gratifying to acknowledge the 9% total market growth in 2021, within of which was an impressive 146% growth in volumes of electric powered L-Category vehicles.

January has seen many standout figures from all sectors, in particular the adventure segment showing a month on month (Jan 21 v Jan 22) increase of 160%. This was heavily boosted by an incredible performance in the 126-650cc + 651-1000cc segments growing by a combined total of 98% in the month. This underlines the heightened interest in Powered Light Vehicles for leisure, driven by a quest for vehicles suitable for a convenient commute and a pleasurable weekend pastime.

Tony Campbell, CEO of MCIA said “After a very positive response from Government and Industry to the launch of the joint Government & MCIA Action Plan last week, we are delighted to see an encouraging start to 2022. This positive trend, alongside the increase in appetite for Motorcycles & Scooters across all sectors highlights the versatility of Powered LightVehicles for everyday travel, and leisure”.
