For the first quarter of 2021, the New Vauxhall Corsa has managed to steal the crown for being the UK’s best-selling car.
In addition to this, the fully-electric Corsa-e has performed equally as strong as it records the highest number of sales in March in the Small Battery Electric Vehicle sector.
Vauxhall has increased its share of the passenger car market from 5.6% to 5.8% year-on-year thanks to the success of the Corsa and Corsa-e, alongside the recent introduction of the all-new Mokka and new Crossland SUVs.
Despite the closure of showrooms as a result of COVID-19 restrictions, Vauxhall has still managed to have a successful first quarter.
The new Corsa-e was the best-selling Battery Electric Vehicle, with 1,232 sales and the all-new Vauxhall Corsa recorded 12,413 registrations.
Vauxhall has recorded an overall total of 15,868 new passenger car registrations in March.
Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall, commented on the results: “We’re delighted the new Vauxhall Corsa is the UK’s best-selling car in the first quarter of 2021. As well as passenger cars, we’ve seen strong LCV sales with the Combo number one in its segment and also high demand for our game-changing, all-electric Vivaro-e.
“Interest in Vauxhall electric vehicles, both cars and vans, is strong and growing. Vauxhall has a wide range of EVs on sale at affordable prices, including the all-new Mokka-e SUV that has just launched. We are very much looking forward to welcoming customers back safely into our network this month.”
