Vauxhall has increased its share of the UK new car market for the third month in a row.

New figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders showed a market share for the brand of 7.23 per cent in November, up from 6.65 per cent in the same month last year. Vauxhall’s car and commercial vehicle market share has now enjoyed growth in five of the last six months.

“Vauxhall has registered strong sales results for November despite the UK new car market declining by 3.0 per cent”, said the company’s Group Managing Director Stephen Norman, welcoming the news, adding, “with 158,639 vehicles registered, the Vauxhall team has delivered again and should all be proud of their efforts.”
