THE NUMBER OF NEW CARS registered last month was well over double the amount registered in the same month last year, according to new figures published by the Central Statistics Office – and Renault cars were most popular among those investing.

2,146 new private cars were taxed between November 1 and 30 – well over the number from last year, which was 948.

The majority of those new cars were diesel, with 1,260 sales, while petrol-only cars accounted for 743 sales. 12 electric hybrid cars were sold, while 129 cars with mixed petrol and ethanol engines were registered.

Renault topped the class in terms of the volume of new registrations, accounting for 376 (16.1% of all sales) of the new registrations, while other high-performing makes included Volkswagen, Toyota and Ford.

November’s stats meant that the total number of new cars registered to date this year was 84,260, with a further 37,155 used cars imported into the state.
