UK Car Sales By Brand : 2000-04

Car sales were on the up in this period, although Ford managed to lose ground. Peugeot also went backwards, while Toyota and BMW had a very good spells. MG Rover was about over. It was crying out for a 45 replacement, the plans for which were rotting in a drawer in Munich. The 'other' figure seems too high for the year 2000. If anyone can shed light on that, please do so.

The nicely styled Ford Focus

The Ford Focus was the best seller through the period, with the Fiesta not far behind. Vauxhall had the Astra as it's biggest selling car and then the Corsa took over  in 2002. The Peugeot 206 was either 4th or 5th throughout, while the Megane and Clio were hot for Renault. The VW Golf was now a regular in the top 10 too. The best of Rover, the 200/25 fell from 15th to 25th.

Looks fine...until you see it from the rear. Let's say it's different
Gaps in the chart below mean either I don't have them, they are very low or no sales at all.
