Volkswagen car market share in the United Kingdom 2016-2020

In September 2020, Volkswagen had a market share of around 8.3 percent in the United Kingdom's passenger car market. When compared to the same month in the three years previous, this proved to be an increase following the Diesel scandal surrounding the German automobile brand.
Volkswagen’s stake on the UK car market resulted from the sale of 27,328 units in September 2020. Overall, 2020 has been a year that has seriously disrupted the global automotive market. Although Volkswagen sold far fewer vehicles in 2020, their share of the UK market remained similar to the previous year.

The UK car market

Volkswagen was one of the most popular car brands in the UK, following U.S. automobile manufacturer Ford. While Volkswagen’s market shares have fluctuated only a little in the past five years, Ford and Vauxhall have seen a decline in their prominence on the car market.
