Corsa retains its place as UK's best-selling car

32,616 Corsas have been registered in the first nine months of 2021 with the all-electric Corsa-e also one of the best-selling all-electric models in its segment, as the brand continues its electric vehicle expansion with the goal of offering an electrified variant across its entire model line-up by 2024. Vauxhall will offer only fully electric cars and vans in the UK by 2028.

Paul Willcox, managing director, Vauxhall, said: "As a British brand, we're delighted to see the Corsa as UK's best-selling new car and, with electric sales continuing to grow at a rapid pace, we're proud to see the Corsa-e and our electric line-up help drive Britain to a more sustainable motoring future."

Customers can purchase new models using the Vauxhall Online Store, which brings the new car shopping experience to the comfort of buyers' homes. Motorists can arrange a live video viewing of a vehicle via the Vauxhall Virtual Showroom and proceed to the Online Store to configure their new model, personalise finance payments and place an order – all from the comfort and safety of home.

The all-new fifth generation Corsa is available with a fully electric powertrain alongside a choice of powerful and efficient petrol or diesel engines. The zero-emissions-in-use Corsa-e was voted The Sun Car of the Year, thanks to its 209-mile WLTP range, affordabilty and fun driving dynamics.
