UK Car Sales By Brand : 1990-94

The Ford Escort was always a winner in the UK

The UK recession of 1991 came after a period of strong economic growth and rising inflation. It hit car sales hard, with sales falling 13% in 1990 and 21% in 1991. With zero improvement in 1992, things got better after that. Ford was badly affected, with market share dropping form 26.5% in 1989 to to 21.5% in 1993. Nissan dived from 6% to 4% in two years from '89 to '91.

The Rover 200 range was popular also

From 1990 to 1993, Ford and Vauxhall had the top 5 sellers and the top 6 in 1994. They had 8 of the top 10 in 1990, such was their popularity. Rover had the 200 and Metro models just below them, while the Renault Clio and a varying Peugeot model just sneaked into the exclusive top 10 club.

The spaces you see are for very low or no sales.
