PEUGEOT has continued its strong performance in 2021, increasing its UK new car and van market share year on year to 4.7%, according to the latest registration figures released by the Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT). PEUGEOT has also improved its Passenger Car Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) sales mix from last year, jumping from 11.2% in 2020 to 15.5% in the first five months of the year.
May was the first full month of the year when showrooms across the country were open to the public following the gradual easing of Covid-19 restrictions, with PEUGEOT selling over 8,400 vehicle sales in May, and having sold over 41,000 in the first five months of the year.
Julie David, Managing Director, PEUGEOT, UK, said: “It’s been fantastic to welcome buyers back to our showrooms in May, especially as we continue to grow our product line-up. Our electric range in particular has been very successful with both private and fleet buyers, and I am excited to see what the rest of the year holds.”
PEUGEOT’s strong LEV sales mix comes as the brand continues to introduce new electric models to its range, having recently announced the upcoming arrival of the new full electric, e-Boxer van – its largest electric van on sale, with up to a 139-mile range and 15m3 maximum load volume.
By the end of 2021, PEUGEOT will be one of the few brands able to offer businesses and buyers a fully electric van across its entire LCV line-up, helping them save on running costs with no compromise in capability. By 2025, PEUGEOT will offer an electric variant across its entire model line-up.
PEUGEOT continued the strong performance in May in terms of new cars, with a market share of 3.9% May year to date, which compares to 3.2% year to date May 2020. PEUGEOT’s private car sales now exceed 10,000 for the year, with its popular new models the new 208 and e-208 and 2008 and e-2008 continuing to perform strongly in their respective segments.
PEUGEOT’s showrooms across the UK continue to adhere to strict social distancing and hygiene measures to keep staff and customers safe. Its online portal, the PEUGEOT Buy Online also continues to operate, giving customers the possibility to configure, view, finance and order their next vehicle entirely online.
