The growth of new car sales in Great Britain made February the 36th consecutive month of growth – a record period – thanks to economic recovery and cheap loans, Great Britain’s Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) announced on Thursday, Reuters informs.
Last month sales grew by 12 per cent to 76,958 units. February’s best-selling models were Ford Fiesta, Volkswagen Golf, Vauxhall Corsa, Vauxhall Astra and Ford Focus.
In February, Dacia sold 569 units on the British market, up 19.79 per cent compared to the same month last year back when it sold 475 units, Agerpres informs.
In the first two months of this year Dacia sold 2,189 vehicles on the British market, up 18.45 per cent compared to the same period last year back when it sold 1,848 units.
In 2014, Dacia sold 23,862 vehicles on the British market, up 37.17 per cent compared to 2013, back when it sold 17,146 units. Dacia’s market share grew from 0.76 to 0.96 per cent.
Great Britain remains the second-largest auto market in the EU, behind Germany but ahead of France, Italy and Spain.
Dacia was taken over by Renault in 1999. Re-launched in 2004 with the Logan model, in eight years’ time Dacia has become a well-known player on the European auto market.
