Auto Trader Group plc (LSE: AUTO, "Auto Trader" or the "Company"), the UK's largest digital automotive marketplace, today provides a further update on its response to the ongoing COVID-19 situation.


A return to charging whilst continuing to support our customers

The government's guidance on 25 May confirmed that vehicle retailers in England can reopen from 1 June. Today, we will advise those customers of the support we will provide as they resume trading. This will include a 25% discount for the month of June. We will confirm any changes to our existing arrangements with our customers in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland at such time as their government announcements are made.



Nathan Coe, Auto Trader's Chief Executive Officer, commented: "This recent government announcement is an important step forward for the automotive industry, and we will continue to support our customers as they resume trading. It is encouraging that both our marketplace data and our consumer research suggest healthy levels of demand."
