The award-winning Vauxhall Corsa is the UK’s best-selling supermini, and the second-best selling new car in the country, according to the latest new car registration figures from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT).

With 39,910 units sold, the Corsa outsold every other supermini on the market in 2022, and was the country’s second-best selling car overall. In 2021, the Corsa was the UK’s best-selling new car, showcasing the continuing popularity the model has with both private and fleet buyers. The Corsa Electric was also the best-selling small electric car with private buyers in 2022.

The Corsa wasn’t the only success story for Vauxhall in 2022. The Vauxhall Mokka was the second-best selling B-SUV model in the country for the year, with 22,176 sold, while the fully electric Mokka Electric variant was also the second-best selling electric B-SUV model, accounting for 27% of all Mokka models sold.

James Taylor, Managing Director, Vauxhall, said: “The Corsa continues to a be a favourite with both private and fleet buyers, and remains one of the country’s best-selling new cars. The Vauxhall Mokka has also proven highly popular with UK customers and showcases our latest bold and pure design language.

In a year that has seen electric registrations grow significantly, it’s great to see the Vauxhall electric line-up also prove popular with customers. This year will see new models like the All-New Astra Electric and Astra Sports Tourer Electric arrive, which will further increase our electric vehicle offering.”
