Always a bit of delay for detailed UK sales data, but it’s worth the wait: today I can give you a Top 350 All-models ranking for the First Half of 2014 vs. a Top 10 traditionally, or a Top 20 for the FY2014 (for now). Note this ranking represents cars registered, not sold and therefore many be slightly different than the previous H1 2014 data published. It also has a few quirks, notably unusual sales splits for the Mini (Cooper/One/Roadster/Paceman). Outside the familiar Top 10, logically the Vauxhall Mokka is up from #54 in FY2013 to #17 now – it ended 2014 in 13th position. The Mercedes A-Class is up 10 spots to #24, the new Picasso lifts Citroen C4 sales up to #25, the new model propels the Nissan Note to #27 vs. #66 in 2013, the Seat Leon is up 16 spots to #30, the Ford Kuga up 20 to #32, the Citroen DS3 steps out of the Top 30 and the Skoda Octavia is up 11 ranks to #38.
Further down, the Renault Captur gains 47 spots to land at #42 but its archenemy the Peugeot 2008 is catching up, and fast: up 77 ranks to finish the first half of the year just 81 units below. Chances are the 2008 will be above the Captur in the FY2014 charts. Launched in January 2013, the Dacia Sandero already knocks at the UK Top 50’s door: up 19 spots on FY2013 to #55 whereas the Duster drops 17 to #100. The BMW 4 Series is up 84 to #69, the Suzuki SX4 up 34 to #91 and the Mercedes GLA tops all-new entrants at #135 above the BMW 2 Series (#143) and, interestingly, the MG 3 at #167 with 898 sales vs. 273 (#226) for the MG 6.
Among other locals, let’s notice the Range Rover Evoque down a harsh 16 spots to #44, the Land Rover Freelander down 11 to #61, Jaguar XF up 3 to #62, Range Rover Sport stable at #75, Jaguar F-Type up 29 to #154, Bentley Continental Flying Spur up 36 to #273 and the Rolls-Royce Wraith up to #268 with 103 sales, already the brand’s best-seller at home. Finally, the Tesla Model S is now included in the ranking and lands directly inside the Top 250.
