The best selling new car in May 2023 was the Ford Puma with 4,184 vehicles registered, according to figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
Year-to-date the Ford Puma also tops the new car registrations with a total of 17,312 cars registered. In second place is the Vauxhall Corsa with 17,062 new cars registered.
After the difficult, Covid-constrained supply issues of the last few years, it’s good to see the new car market maintain its upward trend and the fact that growth is, increasingly, green growth is hugely encouraging. Transforming the market nationwide, however, and at an even greater pace means we must increase demand and help any reticent driver overcome any concerns about electric vehicles. This will require every stakeholder – industry, government, chargepoint operators and energy companies – to play their part, accelerating investment to drive decarbonisation.
Said Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive.
