Vauxhall is Scotland’s biggest selling 19-plate car

Vauxhall was the largest-selling manufacturer in Scotland in the crucial 19-plate month of March.

That’s according to figures released by the Scottish Motor Trade Association.

Vauxhall sold 4,484 cars in Scotland last month, accounting for 12.5 per cent of the market. Corsa was Scotland’s best-selling car with sales of 1,690.

Stephen Norman, Vauxhall’s group managing director, said: ‘The Scottish market is of great importance to Vauxhall.

‘We are delighted to be Scotland’s best-selling car manufacturer, in March and for the last 11 years – long may it continue. We are also very pleased to see Corsa back to being Scotland’s best-selling car.’

This year, Vauxhall will launch the new generation of the best-selling Corsa, including a battery electric version for the first time, a plug-in hybrid Grandland X and the successor to the successful British-built Vivaro available as both a light commercial vehicle (LCV) and passenger car.

Additional variants and equipment versions of the all-new Combo Cargo will also be on sale, significantly renewing its LCV portfolio.
