Dealerships get back to business but sales are down

Truck sales dealerships opened for business last week throughout the country, but sales of HGVs and LCVs have been heavily impacted, according to figures released by the Society of the Irish Motor Industry (SIMI).

HGV (Heavy Goods Vehicle) registrations are down 69.8% (90) in comparison to May 2019 (298). Year to date HGV sakes are down 23.2% (1141).

Light Commercials vehicles (LCV) down 70.3% (510) compared to May last year (1,717) and year to date are down 31.3% (10,016).

Bucking the trend, Breffni Couriers has taken delivery of three new DAF CF trucks from DAF Trucks Ireland.
