Comparison of leading car companies' market share in the United Kingdom (UK) from March 2014 to September 2019

Leading car companies' market share in the United Kingdom 2014-2019 As of September 2019, Ford was the leading car brand in the United Kingdom (UK). The market share of the US based company amounted to 9.47 percent that month, coming ahead of Mercedes Benz, which followed with 8.86 percent. The United Kingdom is Ford’s third largest sales market and employer to roughly 13,000 people at its two engine plants in Bridgend and Dagenham and the partly owned transmission plant in Halewood of leading car makers, Nissan, Mini and Vauxhall operated car production plants in the United Kingdom. In 2018, these three entries had produced nearly 754,000 cars in the UK.

Ford sells 254,000 cars in 2018

This statistic shows that Ford was favored more times than any other car maker, being the market leader in six months between February and December 2018. In the whole of 2018, the company had sold more than 254,000 passenger cars. However, figures for January 2019 suggest that the current market situation was difficult as numbers were noticeably lower than those in the same month in the two years previous. This is likely due to consumer spending uncertainty regarding Brexit.

Volkswagen Group largest car manufacturer worldwide

Although Ford was the leading car brand in the UK, in terms of worldwide sales, Volkswagen Group was the leading automobile manufacturer. In 2018, the company had sold more than 10.8 million units globally with brands such as Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, Seat and Škoda.
