Twin to Opel, the Vauxhall Corsa remains the best-selling passenger car in the UK market. In May, about 4,400 copies of this car were delivered to the market. Total sales of the brand in the UK in May exceeded 7,800 vehicles. The Corsa was also, of course, the market leader in the B segment.
The award-winning Vauxhall Corsa remains the best-selling new car in the UK, according to the latest car registration data published by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
With 4,399 cars sold in May, the Corsa is the best-selling car in the B segment in the UK and remains the best-selling car in the country since the start of the year with 17,198 registrations in 2022.
It’s worth noting that the all-electric Corsa-e was also the best-selling electric city car in May, with 581 registrations. In May, Vauxhall sold 7,894 vehicles to fleets and private buyers.
Paul Willcox, managing director of Vauxhall, said: “The Corsa and Corsa-e continue their success from last year, and I’m delighted to see the Corsa remain the best-selling new car in the country. Despite ongoing challenges for the industry, Vauxhall remained the clear favorite with UK buyers in the first five months. Another favorite in the country, the new Astra, will arrive in the coming weeks, offering car buyers a more accessible design, innovation and a choice of electronic offerings.“.
The Opel Corsa is available in the UK market with a choice of petrol and diesel engines and an all-electric drivetrain. The Corsa-e is powered by a 50 kWh battery and a 136 hp (100 kW) electric motor and can travel up to 360 km (WLTP test cycle) on a single full charge. Let’s add that this car supports fast chargers up to 100 kW, and then charging up to 80% takes only 30 minutes.
