Car Sales UK: 2012


The UK had a solid increase of 5.3%, in a depressed continent of car sales. Some unusual things happened in December. Vauxhall (16,272) was the leader over Ford (15,656) as it was last year, but not for the full year by some margin. BMW was third in December (10,175 sales) while Audi (4,786) was 7th. This enabled BMW to pass Audi on the full year sales chart. VW (9,651) sold less than BMW! Nissan (6,441) outsold Audi for the month too! December was good for private vehicle sales (+12.5%), so that may show which makers rely more on the fleet market.

For the year, Renault continues its slide as it eschews unprofitable sales. It looks bad on paper, but a sensible move I feel. Its alliance partner Nissan keeps on keeping on, but I wonder if it can take it to another level from here? Nice to see MG coming back.

The first three columns show 2010 to 2012 ranking, the second column in from the right is increase or decrease, and the extreme right shows market share for the major brands.
