However, Mike Hawes, the chief executive of the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), said diesel was getting an unnecessarily bad name and urged action from the government.

"Consumers need urgent reassurance that the latest, low-emission diesel cars on sale will not face any bans, charges or other restrictions, anywhere in the United Kingdom", he added.

"Declining business and consumer confidence is undoubtedly affecting demand in the new vehicle market but this is being compounded by confusion over Government policy on diesel", he said.

The industry body said auto registrations dropped 12.2% year-on-year to 158,192 last month - the second double-digit decline this year.

The SMMT reports a further decline in new vehicle registration in the United Kingdom for October 2017, with sales down 12.2% and Diesel sales down by 29.9%.

Year-to-date, the vehicle market is down -4.6% on 2016 levels, with 2,224,603 cars registered in the first 10 months and the SMMT forecast a -4.17% decline for 2017 for 2.565 million units.
