Also in the report, the association said that petrol car sales have increased by almost 10 per cent in the first half of this year compared to the same time period in 2016. This in turn allowed petrol car sales to account for 48.5 percent of all passenger car sales, 2.7 percent more than in 2016 and greater than diesels for the first time since 2009.
