* The direct links to these 14 Historical articles are below *
Thanks to Chris, author of British Leyland Chronicles, and via Andrew I am now able to share with you the best-selling models in Ireland in 1974, nearly 20 years prior to the previous oldest data for Ireland which was 1993! At the time the Ford Escort was the best-seller... And thanks to STAC there is a complete list of Irish Historical Data for the last 20 years! The Opel Astra was king of Ireland in 1993 and 1994, then got passed by the Ford Fiesta in 1996 before the Fiat Punto took control from 1998 to 2000.
The Ford Focus then started a decade-long domination, topping the Irish models ranking from 2001 to 2012, only interrupted twice: by the Toyota Corolla in 2004 and the Renault Megane in 2010... Discover the Top 50 best-sellers in Ireland from 1993 to 1996, the Top 10 for 1998 and from 2001 to 2006, the Top 30 from 2007 to 2010 and the Top 100 most popular models in the country from 2011 onwards. Finally the VW Golf takes the lead for the very first time in 2013.
