New Vauxhall Corsa retains its place as UK’s best-selling car

17 May 2021

The new Vauxhall Corsa is the UK's best-selling car so far this year, according to the latest new car sales and registration figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). 

The Corsa has been the UK’s best-selling car in eight of the last 12 months, including June, July, September and November last year. It’s also been number one every month so far this year. 

In addition, the fully-electric Corsa-e has performed strongly, recording the highest number of sales for 2021 year-to-date in the small Battery Electric Vehicle (BEV) sector. 

In 2021, the new Corsa recorded 16,381 registrations, while the new Corsa-e was the best-selling small BEV, with 1,706 sales. 

Commenting on the results, Paul Willcox, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “It’s great to see the new Vauxhall Corsa remain the UK’s best-selling car and we’re proud that its all-electric version, Corsa-e, is the UK’s best-selling small EV. Customer interest in electric cars and vans in the UK is at an all-time high and Vauxhall is continually expanding its line-up to offer class-leading electrified vehicles, not least with a fully electric van line-up to come before the end of the year.” 

Vauxhall sales were buoyed in April by showrooms reopening nationwide within UK Government guidelines, with staff and customer safety at the forefront. 

The all-new fifth generation Corsa is available with a fully-electric powertrain or a choice of efficient petrol or diesel engines. The zero-emissions Corsa-e was voted The Sun Car of the Year, thanks to its 209-mile WLTP range, affordable price and fun driving dynamics.
