This BMW Is The Fastest Selling Used Car In April

Thu 9th May 2019

BMW’s 2018 2 Series Gran Tourer has proven to be a popular choice for car buyers in the past month, the MPV taking an average of just 16 days to move off showroom forecourts.

The figures published by motoring trade publication, Auto Trader show that MPVs and SUVs are continuing their dominance in the popularity stakes, occupying six of the top ten places.

The changing trends of the differing fuel options was reflected with the fact that only three of the UK’s best-selling cars were powered by diesel, with alternatively fuelled cars seemingly the beneficiary with 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander proving to be the fastest selling used car in London.

"The sudden growth of alternatively fuelled vehicles in London is evidence of two important trends. For one, it suggests the Mayor’s decision to take a more direct approach in tackling air pollution in the Capital is having an impact on car buying behaviour," said Karolina Edwards-Smajda, Auto Trader’s Director of Commercial Products. "It’s also just one more example of a broader shift in perception towards AFVs. As we saw in our recent Market Report, 71 percent of consumers are already considering an EV as their next car.

"With more low-emission zones being introduced in other big cities, more pressure applied to drivers of older vehicles, and a long pipeline of impressive second generation of electric vehicles set to hit the market, there’s little doubt the direction of the market. Retailers’ forecourts should reflect it accordingly."
