Thanks to our partnership with SMMT we can share with you today the Top 10 best-selling nameplates of each UK nation in October. As a reminder, this data is already included in the UK October update, this is a zoom-in by nation. England (+1%) and Scotland (+7%) keep the overall UK market afloat whereas Northern Ireland (-2%) and Wales (-7%) struggle. Year-to-date, England continues to be the sole reason the UK market is still evolving at record pace this year with deliveries up 3% to 1.998.489 or 85.7% of the overall market. Northern Ireland is up 0.3% to 52.145, Scotland down 0.4% to 192.910 and Wales down 0.8% to 80.933.
The Ford Fiesta only manages two wins this month, in England with 4.4% share and Wales with 6.7%, with the VW Golf taking the lead in Northern Ireland with 3.6% and the Vauxhall Corsa dominates Scotland at 5.3%. The podiums vary wildly depending on the nation: in Wales it’s 100% a Ford affair with the Focus at #2 and Kuga at #3, in England the Nissan Qashqai outpaces the Vauxhall Astra for #2, in Northern Ireland the Kia Sportage shoots up to #3 and in Scotland the Dacia Sandero surges to #2. Other great performers include the Nissan Juke up to #7 in England, the Renault Kadjar up to #7 in Northern Ireland, the Fiat 500X up to #8 in Scotland and the Vauxhall Mokka X snapping its very first Top 10 ranking, also in Scotland.
