The chief executive of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) appeared on Car Dealer Live today.
Mike Hawes was the guest on the show hosted by James Batchelor, which was broadcast live on the Car Dealer YouTube channel from midday.
With new car sales improving since lockdown restrictions started to ease in June, all eyes are on August registrations and the September plate-change – a month that will take on a new significance in 2020.
Has the government supported the manufacturing industry and motor trade enough, are we at a tipping point in the adoption of electric cars and what are the predictions for the rest of the year?
All those questions and more were discussed and you watch the interview at the top of this story.
