Wales Passenger Car Sales : 2018


This is part of the UK but is shown separately here as there are differences to the national UK average. The top 30 data I get is for all the UK, then broken down into regions, so for example Jeep certainly isn't the 30th brand in Wales. It is though for the UK as a whole. The new arrival in the top 30 is MG.

Green highlights increased sales and yellow decrease. As the total is down 4%, there is more yellow. On the extreme right of the chart is a comparison with the total UK ranking. For example, Toyota is four places higher in Wales than nationally, across the UK. Suzuki is up an amazing eleven places, with Dacia and MG up eight.

Jaguar i-Pace Sales 2019 (by nation - progressive)


The i-Pace is gathering pace as cars reach their customers around the world. I am unsure of the production ceiling, I have heard 20,000 pa but I'm thinking it has to be more than that. Anyway, here are some nations that are selling them and that I have data for. If anyone can add to the list, please contact me either by a comment or rdc1234@gmail.com. I would like to be a collaborative effort if possible.

I will update the list during the year.The 2018 totals are first, then comes the 2019 total followed by monthly sales. No, the Netherlands isn't a typo. It really did roar in 2018 but a change of incentives flattened sales. Brazil and Greece are a new countries in April, bringing the total to 30 nations listed below.

Monthly average sales are under 2,000 so far. With demand still strong, it would appear that battery supply is the main constraint. I have heard that Jaguar is already switching to another supplier, so that may help. The i-Pace contributed slightly 12% of total Jaguar sales in April and just under 10% YTD.
