The Golf Leads

The Golf was Volkswagen’s star performer once again, retaining its place as one of the top 10 selling models in the UK for the year. The award-winning ID.3 also made the top 10 list of best-selling battery electric vehicles (BEVs), as more UK customers made the switch to fully electric driving in 2022.

These impressive figures were recently released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT), who also confirmed that the BEV market has an overall market share of 16.6% with a 40.1% year-on-year increase in sales across all manufacturers. Volkswagen’s diverse range of fully electric models puts the brand in a strong position in this growing market.

The Future Of Electric

Volkswagen’s commitment to electric vehicles is set to continue with the forthcoming debut of the fully electric luxury saloon, the ID.7, which was unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. It’s clear that Volkswagen is not only the best-selling car brand in the UK, but also a leader in the shift towards fully electric driving.

“I am very pleased for Volkswagen to have finished 2022 as the UK’s most popular new-car brand for the second consecutive year. While it was obviously a challenging year for the whole industry, our team – including our fantastic network partners – did a brilliant job over the past 12 months. The result is also a clear reflection of the quality and attractiveness of our range offering.

“This year we will continue to expand our acclaimed family of electric cars with the arrival of the just-announced ID.7, which will be bolstered by other exciting new product offerings. It’s a very exciting time to be a part of Volkswagen.”

– Rod McLeod, Director of Volkswagen UK

Does Volkswagen Have Variety?

Volkswagen is known for providing customers with a vast range of options when it comes to choosing a vehicle. In addition to their top-selling electric models, they also offer a diverse range of SUVs. From the compact T-Cross and Taigo to the stylish T-Roc, versatile Tiguan, and luxurious Touareg, Volkswagen has something for everyone in the highly competitive SUV market. With such exciting and well-rounded offerings, it’s no wonder that Volkswagen’s popularity has only continued to grow.

If Volkswagen continues its popular brand run and holds its status as the best-selling car brand, then there will be a demand for Volkswagen vehicles in the used car market.
