Given England accounts for 85% of overall UK sales, the English models ranking is extremely similar to the UK one and much less ‘exotic’ than Scotland, Northern Ireland or Wales. Keep in mind these figures are already included in the UK monthly updates. In fact, there is only one change inside the Top 10.
