THE increase in diversity is being seen on the UK’s roads: since 2017 the number of female car buyers has risen 21%.
The data from the Society of Motor Manufacturers (SMMT) has unearthed the changing face of car ownership. There are now 11.8 million female car buyers.
The figures are released today (April 16, 2018) in a new Motorparc data publication.
The SMMT says the UK’s biggest automotive analysis shows the changing face of Britain’s cars – and their keepers.
The latest analysis shows the number of cars registered to women has surged by more than a fifth (21%) since 2007, with women now owning more than a third (11.8m) of the UK’s cars.
This compares with a 10% increase in the number of men purchasing one in the same period.
There were 17.8m cars registered to men in 2017 and there are now 34.7 million cars on UK roads, up 12% across the past 10 years.
