The UK's Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has revised its 2003 forecast upwards by 50,000 units to 2.45 million sales because year-to-date registrations are down only 2.6%. If achieved, this would make 2003 the third highest total on record after 2002 registrations of 2,563,631 units and 2,458,769 in 2001.
