Lotus Cars Sales In UK Up 56% in 2013
The latest figures year end sales figures show that UK registrations of Lotus Cars grew 56% for the January-November time period compared to 2012 – a positive sign that things are on the up once again at Hethel.
2012 saw new registrations of Lotus’ fall dramatically in the UK, with the takeover of Proton by DRB-Hicom all but halting production at the factory as auditing and process improvements were carried out and consumer confidence being hurt amongst uncertainty over the companies future. Although 2013 UK registrations of 193 cars for the year to date are certainly an improvement over 2012, they still lag behind the 2011 figures of over 300 cars for the full year registrations . Hopefully this upward sales trend can continue in to 2014.
