Sales soar to record
The UK car industry continues to soar, with June marking the 40th consecutive month of growth.
In the first six months of 2015, a total of 1,376,889 models were registered, making it the highest half-year figure since records began.
Registrations were also up almost 13 per cent over May’s figures.
Once again Ford’s Fiesta topped the charts and was Britain’s best-selling car, with the Vauxhall Corsa in second place. Another Ford – the Focus – was in third place.
