UK car sales have been pretty nonexistent lately, which is pretty much a given due to the ongoing pandemic. In fact, new car sales here in the UK have dropped dramatically by 97% due to the heath crisis. In April, only 4,321 brand new cars were sold, this time last year that number was 161,064.
The other news comes from Tesla, which in April made up 15% of those 4,321 new cars sold – at 658. These statistics come from the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). The easy to order, fully online Tesla experience very likely made ordering new Model 3 vehicles much easier than other manufactures. Second best seller last month was another electric car, the Jaguar I-Pace – which sold 367.
