The Ford Kuga scores its first ever win in England this month.
Thanks to our partnership with SMMT we can share with you today the Top 10 best-sellers for all UK nations in October. Keep in mind this is a zoom in by nation, all sales figures being included in our November 2019 UK update. This month only Wales (+7.6%) manages a year-on-year gain to 6.004 registrations, with England (-1.3%) at 135.271 logically matching the UK market’s drop but Northern Ireland (-2.9%) at 3.160 and Scotland (-4.2%) at 11.885 diving. Year-to-date, all nations are down, with Wales (-1.6%) resisting best at 74.284, England (-2.5%) at 1.866.400 and Northern Ireland (-2.7%) matching the overall UK market and Scotland (-5.5%) frankly underperforming at 166.977.
We have an interesting situation in the models ranking this month: the Vauxhall Corsa owes its national pole position almost solely to an outstanding performance in Wales where it takes a 11.3% market share with sales up 561.2% year-on-year, while only ranking #5 in England, #8 in Scotland and outside the Northern Irish Top 10. Meanwhile the Ford Kuga scores its first ever monthly win in England, repeats at #1 in Northern Ireland and ranks #2 in Scotland and #3 in Wales. For its part the Mercedes A-Class manages its first ever win in Scotland, meaning the Ford Fiesta tops no nation this month, instead ranking #2 in Wales and #3 in both England and Scotland.
Other podium rankers are the VW Golf #2 in England, the Ford Focus #2 in Northern Ireland and the Renault Kadjar at #3 in Northern Ireland, its 2nd ever podium there after ranking #2 in December 2016 and its first Top 10 finish since February 2018. The Vauxhall Astra is up to #4 in Wales, its first Top 10 finish there since August 2017, the Seat Arona lands at #5 in Northern Ireland, its first ever Top 10 finish in any UK nation and the BMW X3 is #10 in Scotland for its third ever Top 10 (#7 in August 2017 and #6 in February 2019). Finally the Tesla Model 3 returns to the Londoner pole position for the third time in the past 4 months, while the BMW 5 Series surges to #2, the Toyota Prius is up to #4 and the Porsche Cayenne storms into the Top 10 at #9.
