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.

  1. Yup, Ford have been dominating the UK market since the 1980's with the classic Fiesta and Escort. My father ran a great, small car dealership in Bristol UK that specilised in Fords. The Fiesta was our best seller by a mile.
    Later in the 1990's Vauxhall took a bigger market share with the popular Cavalier. I especially loved the Cavalier 2.0 GSI model.

    Anyhow, I am looking to get established on Blogger and started my car blog just yesterday with my first two posts. CarVeto Guides.
    Thanks

    1. Hi Marcus. We had a couple of Vauxhalls in NZ but that brand isn't sold here anymore. The Holden name is used instead.
