              Used SUV’s are still driving the highest margins for dealer, but profits for sportier models appearing

              Used SUV’s are still driving the highest margins for dealer, but profits for sportier models appearing

              Purley Automotive News - May 2022

              SUVs are still driving strong profits for dealers, new data shows – but traders are starting to focus on sportier brands, too.

              Dealer Auction’s latest Retail Margin Monitor shows SUVs continue to fly off forecourts.

              Five of the top 10 cars in the firm’s monthly assessment of the used motors that delivered the highest profit margins were high-riding SUVs.

              For the second month running, Land Rover topped the table of brands that delivered the highest profits.

              May’s figure was £3,600 – down on April’s but still proof that buyers are lapping up SUVs wearing the Land Rover badge.

              However, Dealer Auction said it’s seeing dealers hunting out more performance and sporting models as buyers’ tastes have turned due to recent warmer weather.

              Models such as the Audi A5 and Jaguar XF have increased in popularity and, in turn, in profit margins.

              Despite this, the firm is still encouraging dealers to continue focussing on SUVs to satisfy buyers’ wishes for ‘staycation’ holidays this year.

              The full top 10 lists of models and brands is listed below.

              Commenting on the data, Dealer Auction’s marketplace director, Kieran TeeBoon, said: ‘As we witness a Land Rover model at the top of the table for the fourth month in a row, it’s clear where dealers can seek out opportunities for extra profit.

              ‘Dealers are still seeking to stock premium models and maximise on the profit opportunity they bring.’

              The top 10 brands by retail margin data is dominated by premium brands, however at number two is value-brand MG.

              TeeBoon said: ‘As we witness a Land Rover model at the top of the table for the fourth month in a row, it’s clear where dealers can seek out opportunities for extra profit.

              ‘Dealers are still seeking to stock premium models and maximise on the profit opportunity they bring.’

              Richard Walker, Auto Trader’s director of data and insights, added: ‘It’s not a surprise to see SUVs retain their position at the top of the list, as they remain among the most popular body types for consumers – in April SUVs took an average of just 31 days to sell.

              ‘However, the weather is always a contributing factor to consumer preferences, and as temperatures begin to climb, many car buyers are looking for suitably sportier models.

              ‘Last week, we saw convertibles leave forecourts in just 33 days, which is below its April average (36), and 12 per cent faster than SUVs which increased to an average of 37 days.’

              SMMT calls for ‘van plan’ to help get electric vans on the road

              SMMT calls for ‘van plan’ to help get electric vans on the road

              Purley Automotive News - May 2022

              More than half of van owners say they are discouraged from switching to an electric van due to a lack of chargepoint infrastructure.

              According to new research published today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) 57% of people who own or lease a van in the UK are worried that they wouldn’t be able to find a public charging point when they need it.

              The SMMT said that persuading van drivers to switch to zero emission vehicles is essential if Britain is to become Net Zero while keeping the nation on the move. Vans directly support around one in 10 workers in Britain, acting as the essential workhorse for sectors such as construction and industry, trades such as plumbers, landscapers and cleaners, and home delivery services which grew rapidly during the pandemic.

              With more than four million vans on the road, electrifying the fleet will substantially reduce the UK’s transport-related carbon emissions, while also delivering cleaner air in cities. Those who switch can enjoy lower running costs, promote their environmental credentials and demonstrate sustainability when bidding for work.

              More than a third of all new van models now on sale come with a plug following billions of pounds of investment by manufacturers, investment which has delivered massively improved payloads and battery range, with van owners spoilt for choice. Confidence in this range is high, with just 20% saying there isn’t enough variety of models to meet their needs.

              Despite electric van uptake doubling in the last year, these vehicles still account for just one in 20 new van registrations – meaning the market is currently about two years behind that of cars, where uptake of zero emission cars is closer to one in five. With vans facing the same 2035 end of sale date for non-zero emission vehicles as cars, however, the automotive sector is calling on all stakeholders to match its commitment to drive the electric transition.

              While just one in eight owners say they don’t plan to ever switch to an electric van, the vast majority (88%) say they would go electric by 2035 but a fifth of these owners say they will defer the decision for three to seven years.

              Overcoming this reticence is critical, therefore, with many people (58%) suggesting they might be convinced to buy an EV sooner if there was a greater number of public charging points. The availability of government incentives such as reduced tax or grants towards purchase would also steer 57% of respondents towards a zero emission van.

              The UK already has a paucity of standard public charge points as take up of electrified vehicles accelerates. There is just one available for every 32 plug-in vehicles on the road, with fears exacerbated for van owners. Public chargepoints designed for cars will not always be suitable or in the right locations for vans, which also typically need a larger parking area. As a result, van charging provision must be factored into national infrastructure plans, with commensurate and binding targets for charge points for passenger cars and commercial vehicles to match the commitments of the automotive industry.

              Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said: “Britain’s businesses run on vans and if we’re to deliver the nation’s carbon emission cuts, we need them to move to electric. There’s an electric van to suit every business case, but we need a ‘van plan’ to ensure zero-emission driving works for the millions of people for whom their van is their livelihood and the millions more who rely on these workhorses for the delivery of their daily needs. The automotive industry is getting these new technology vehicles
