Vauxhall Vans are Number One

Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles sold more vans to retail customers last year than any other manufacturer, according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.

Impressive

The Bedfordshire-based auto-maker sold 13,000 vehicles to small businesses. As a result, Vauxhall’s retail market share was an impressive 16.2 per cent, up 1.8 percentage points on last year. Total Vauxhall Commercial Vehicle sales were up 28 per cent with over 41,000 sold.

Vivaro and movano

The Vivaro enjoyed another successful year in 2015 with more than 27,000 sold. The Movano, the largest van in Vauxhall’s range, saw sales increase 28 per cent with over 5,000 sold.

“We are delighted to be back in a segment-leading position,” said Richard Collier, Vauxhall’s National Commercial Vehicle Sales Manager. “Vauxhall continues to provide customers with compelling offers supported by high quality, fuel-efficient vehicles with low running costs and superb manufacturer support.”

Growth was seen across the board last year making it the best ever year for light commercial vehicles with 371,830 registrations, surpassing the previous record set in 2007.
