While the Vauxhall Corsa is officially the biggest-selling car in the UK, VW can proudly take the cup for being the best-selling overall brand. A major achievement.
The SMMT has confirmed that with 147,826 VW vehicles registered last year place Volkswagen’s total UK sales are above all other car brands for the first time in its history.
The total number of new Volkswagens registered across last year represents 8.97% of the UK’s total new car market – more than any other brand.
Rod McLeod, Director of Volkswagen UK, said: “What a way to start the new year – as the UK’s biggest-selling car brand across 2021. It’s a great achievement from all at Volkswagen UK, including from our fantastic network partners, as well as a clear reflection and ringing endorsement of the strength of our range offering.
“With a growing family of award-winning ID. models bolstering an already impressive range of class-leading products, it is an incredibly exciting time to be part of the UK’s most popular car brand.”
