Best selling new cars in the UK - November 2021


 

Ongoing production issues still plague the motor industry, with a particular concern with the supply chain of semiconductor chips. However, motor manufacturers still strive to provide as many new cars as they can for the marketplace.

 

Despite the difficulties, and reduced new car registrations, the competition is still on to sell as many new cars as possible.

 

The month of November saw the new car market record 115,706 vehicles registered, according to the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). This figure was slightly higher than November 2020 and was the first time the motor industry saw an increase in four months.

 

So without further ado, here are the top 10 best selling new cars for November 2021 in the UK

  1. Mini hatchback - 3,551 new cars registered
  2. Vauxhall Corsa - 3,123
  3. Tesla 3 - 3,077
  4. Hyundai Tucson - 2,988
  5. Ford Focus - 2,576
  6. MG ZS - 2,458
  7. Nissan Qashqai - 2,427
  8. Mercedes-Benz A-Class 2,327
  9. Volkswagen T-Roc - 2,224
  10. Volvo XC40 - 2,081

 

Continued success for Mini and Corsa models

 

The results encourage many manufacturers who you would not necessarily expect to see in the top 10. It also sees a number of the more established best-selling models underline their popularity.  Mini best selling car UK November 2021

 

Mini built on a strong October, where the hatchback was the second best-selling new car, seeing it jump up one spot. It is also heartening to Mini to see the model retain its popularity with new images emerging of a new Mini model in the motoring press.

 

Another solid performance saw the Vauxhall Corsa in second place. This result maintains the Corsa as the best-selling car of the year in the UK with 38,306 new registrations year-to-date.

 

The Tesla Model 3 again affirms its position as the most popular electric car on the market. This comes as Tesla becomes the most valuable motor manufacturer in the world with a $1 Billion plus valuation.

 

The Hyundai Tucson again makes the top 10, following a 10th place finish in October. The Tucson offers a variety of options for SUV buyers, with traditional petrol engine options offered alongside mild, standard and plug-in hybrid variants.

 

The ever-popular Ford Focus completes the top 5 for November. Ever the popular choice for the hatchback owner, the latest model mixes the renowned driving ability with great space.

 

The MG ZS is proving a popular choice for those looking for SUV practicality on a budget. With petrol options starting at just over £14,000 with the likes of Carwow, is there a better value SUV in the market currently?   MG ZS

 

The Nissan Qashqai underlines its longevity and popularity with a strong seventh place finish in November, with 2,427 vehicles registered.

 

Eighth is the stylish Mercedes Benz A-Class, providing competition to the Ford Focus in the mass market hatchback sector.

 

Perhaps surprisingly, the only entry in the top 10 from Volkswagen is the T-Roc in ninth place. Perhaps the absence of the Polo and Golf models underlines the supply chain issues for popular models.

 

Completing the Top 10 is the Volvo XC40, with the model showing the way to its larger Volvo stablemates in the XC60 and XC90.

 

One month to go before the best selling car of the year is confirmed. Will the Vauxhall Corsa hold on? If supply issues continue then you suspect Vauxhall may well be celebrating come December 31st.
