The numbers of cars sold in Jan 2011 is down 11.5% from last year. Hardly shocking given the increase in VAT to 20% and ending of the scrappage scheme.
There aren’t any real surprises in terms of the most sold cars from January. Once the new Ford Focus is launched we’d expect the number sold to increase rapidly. Lots of buyers will have been waiting for it and there will be a lot of fleet purchases as soon as it’s launched.
Ford sold the most cars, with 19,657 being registered. Vauxhall was next, with Volkswagen coming third.
Commiserations to Ssangyong, who sold only three cars!
