2011 New Car Sales Analysis


Latest figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers ( SMMT) show no car sales in the UK was down by 4.4%, not a great surprise given the current economic climate.  Purchasing a car is always a big decision and the figures show we are being more careful with what we chose, over 36% of all cars are in the small hatchbacks. Economy also featured highly, for the first time more diesel cars (50.6%) were sold than petrol cars (46.1%) the other 1.3% were alternatively fuelled cars. Carbon Dioxide emissions were also down 4.2% on 2010 and 23.7% down on 2000.

Ford and Vauxhall are still dominant. From the top 10 the Fiesta was first followed by the Focus in third with the Corsa in third, all of with are common used for driving lessons. Audi are closing fast on BMW while Renault sales were in step decline.
