London (UK) Car Sales : 2017


London doesn't have a high car ownership rate due its being very crowded. It also has a high per capita earning level so a unique mix in the UK. While the UK as a whole was down 65, London was half that. It's also no surprise that Mercedes is the second largest brand, but I didn't see Nissan as the top brand. In recent years it's been around 5th and 6th, yet the last few years really taken off. As it is the UK's largest car brand in terms of production, it's fitting that it is numero uno. It should be so across the country.

Ford's long standing lead evaporated with a 17% slide. Vauxhall fared little better, managing a 15% drop. Local brands Land Rover and Jaguar should be doing better, especially the latter.

The data source covers twelve regions across the UK, the top 30 as below is for the UK as a whole. Each regions sales from that collective top 30 is then given. There may be one or two brands that would otherwise be in a top 30 but are missing from a region because not every region will have the same top 30.
