Vaux rocks for Scottish buyers in September 2012

Vauxhall continued its market dominance in Scotland in the crucial plate change month of September 2012, according to figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders.


The Luton-based manufacturer has sold over 12,000 cars so far in 2012 north of the border and well over 2,000 in September alone, making Vauxhall comfortably the top-selling manufacturer in Scotland in September 2012 and the year-to-date. Twice as many Vauxhall’s were registered in September in Scotland as by our nearest rival.


The Corsa is Scotland’s best-selling car and the Astra, British-built at Vauxhall’s Ellesmere Port plant, and the Zafira MPV topped their respective segments both in September 2012 and at year-to-date. The Insignia is number one in its segment at so far in 2012.


“We are delighted to be Scotland’s biggest selling car manufacturer and very happy with the Corsa’s supremacy in what is a highly important market for us,” said Gordon Hannen, Vauxhall’s Regional Operations Manager for Scotland.


Buoyed by our unique Vauxhall Lifetime Warranty which provides first owners with the reassurance of comprehensive cover for however long they own the car, Vauxhall has been the market leader in Scotland for the last five years. Vauxhall is the lead sponsor of the Scotland National Football Team.


September was also an excellent month for Vauxhall Commercial Vehicles. We sold more vans in the UK to small businesses than any other manufacturer.
