The Vauxhall Corsa has taken back its position as the country’s best-selling new car, according to the latest car registration figures published today by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
The UK’s best-selling car in 2021, the Corsa has remained popular with buyers this year, and is now once again the best-selling car in the country for the first four months of 2023, with 14,034 units sold.
The Corsa was the best-selling car in its segment in April, and the second-best selling car for the month overall. Its fully electric variant, the Corsa Electric, was also the second-best selling electric supermini in April.
Vauxhall is on course to be a fully electric brand by 2028, seven years ahead of the UK Government deadline.
James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “Given how competitive the UK new car market is, it’s fantastic to see the Corsa retain the top-selling spot. The Corsa continues to appeal to a wide range of buyers, from fleet users to those just learning to drive, and is crucially available with both petrol and electric powertrains.”
