Car Sales UK: 2010


Things are moving in the UK. Ford retained #1 position, but is looking increasingly precarious. It's market share is the lowest for several decades, while both Vauxhall and VW consolidate their places on 2nd and 3rd. BMW jumped two places to 4th and Renault was up 5 to 7th. Mind you Renault's upward move benefited by a shocker in 2009. Toyota slumped from 4th to 9th and Honda dropped three rungs on the ladder.

In the chart below, italicised figures at the end of each line indicates a drop in market share. Now for the top 30:
