This region includes the South West and South East of England plus London. The top 30 makes are tabulated for the whole of the UK, then listed by region. This means the list may not be a top 30 for everyone. So below are the 30 best selling UK brands and this is how those brands in the south of England fared. The UK average was -29% for the year so -31% was a bit down.
Ford was unceremonially bumped off the top spot to third three years ago and may not be able to retain that place much longer. To call the south of England German car industry obsessed would be like saying the sky is blue, so I won't say it. Clearly, supporting UK-made isn't a high priority down here.
