New car registration in Britain plunged by 97.3 percent in April, hitting a record low in decades as the nation was in lockdown for the entire month to tackle the novel coronavirus, according to a report released Tuesday. With showrooms closed and car buyers housebound, just 4,321 new cars were registered in the month, merely above the 4,044 units sold in February 1946, said the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) in the report.
