The Vauxhall Corsa leads the supermini segment year-to-date with 10,254 sold, while the Corsa Electric was the best-selling electric supermini in April. Vauxhall’s passenger car sales volume increased by 8% compared to last year, representing 33,050 car registrations year-to-date, an increase of 2,351.

Vauxhall was the second best-selling LCV manufacturer in April and is the third best-selling brand year-to-date, with 11,867 vans registered so far in 2024, an increase of 14% over this time last year. Vauxhall’s LCV market share has also increased by almost half a percentage point to 9.76% year-to-date. The Vauxhall Vivaro – manufactured in Luton – is the best-selling medium van so far this year, with 6,423 registrations.

In the electric van market, Vauxhall led the sales charts in April and is the second best-selling brand year-to-date. The Combo Electric was the best-seller in its segment and the second best-selling electric van overall in April. It is manufactured at Ellesmere Port, the UK’s first electric-only volume manufacturing plant.

James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “Vauxhall continues to demonstrate its commitment to providing practical and accessible LCVs for a wide range of personal and professional uses, with the Vivaro leading the way in its segment for the year. With the Combo Electric also topping its segment in April, it’s fantastic to see our British-built vans proving popular with businesses across the country. On top of this, the continued popularity of the Corsa once again underlines its status as Britain’s favourite supermini.”
