After a successful 2014 that saw new car registrations hit a ten year high UK Car Discount is looking forward to another successful year. ‘The economic recovery has certainly given motorists the confidence to buy new cars in large numbers.’ Said UK Car Discount MD Brian Bennett. ‘That coupled with the attractive low running costs that new cars offer has seen motorists ditching their old fuel guzzlers for new vehicles that offer significant savings on running costs with low fuel consumption and zero road tax in some cases.’

The SMMT (Society Of Motor Manufacturers and Traders) reported 2,476,435 new cars registered in the UK in 2014, the highest figure since 2004 and actually the fourth highest on record.

The Supermini sector was the big seller followed by small family cars. The Ford Fiesta was not only the best-selling car in this class but also best overall in the UK by some distance, outselling its big brother the Ford Focus by more than 46,000 units over the year. Vauxhall also performed well with the Corsa and Astra the third and fifth best-selling cars of 2014 respectively. Volkswagen and Nissan also performed well both having two models in the top ten best sellers. The Audi A3 and comeback king, the Fiat 500 made up the rest of the ten best sellers. ‘We sold a large number of small cars in 2014’ said Directory Gary Bennett ‘Motorists are becoming extremely savvy when it comes to looking at the bigger picture with running costs and the residual value of the vehicle more important than ever them.’

Alternative fuel vehicles saw a huge upturn in 2014 with a 58% upturn on the previous year. ‘Motorists are becoming more and more aware of the environmental impact of traditional fuelled engines and we fully expect the upturn in alternative fuelled vehicles to continue in 2015. Expect to see more full electric models on the road as manufacturers continue to improve the technology and make them more practical.

‘The rapid development of clever technology has certainly delivered massive benefits to motorists’ said MD Brian Bennett ‘We fully expect another good year in 2015, although there should be a levelling off of new car registrations.’
