New vehicle sales plummet | BreakingNews.ie
New vehicle sales fell by a staggering 64% in the first week of 2009, official figures revealed today.
As the recession begins to bite, only 9,390 cars were registered in the first five days of January compared to 26,029 for the same period last year.
The question is now, how many car dealers will be closing down this year? If this trend was to continue there would be serious job losses in the sector.
