The Vauxhall Corsa is the best-selling supermini in August 2023, as well as year-to-date up to August. It is also the second best-selling car so far this year in the UK, with the Electric Corsa remaining as the best-selling Small Electric Car (Electric B-Hatch) and the Mokka Electric the best-selling Electric B-SUV in 2023. This lines up with Vauxhall's pledge to be an electric-only manufacturer by 2028, 7 years ahead of the UK Government deadline.
Vauxhall’s Corsa range continued its impressive sales performance in August in the UK, topping the sales charts in two segments according to the latest new car registration figures published recently by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).
The Vauxhall Corsa was the best-selling B-Hatchback in August as well as year-to-date, and also being the second best-selling car in general in the UK so far this year. The Corsa Electric also maintains its position as the best-selling Small Electric Car (Electric B-Hatch) so far in 2023.
The Vauxhall Mokka Electric also remains the best-selling Small Electric SUV (Electric B-SUV) between January-August 2023.
Vauxhall shall become an electric-only brand by 2028, seven years ahead of the UK Government deadline of 2035.
James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “It is exciting to see the Corsa continue to excel in the sales charts in both Electric and petrol variants. The success of the Corsa Electric is testament to our commitment to spearheading the UK’s transition to electrification.”
The New Corsa features Vauxhall’s bold and enticing Vizor front end across its range, as well as a number of additional styling and technology improvements. Fully electric models are available with Vauxhall’s next-generation 51kWh battery for a range of up to 246 miles (WLTP).
