Infographic: UK Car Buying Trends

We have a great infographic originally published on the Sainsbury’s Bank blog.

It details UK car buying trends over the last 10 years, including make, model, and even the nations favourite colour.

March 2004 holds the record for the most new car registrations, with March 2014 coming in second place overall, since the change to twice-yearly plate changes in 1999.

More people are now choosing to buy a new car but sales of used cars still greatly outweigh that of new cars sales by a factor of 3 to 1.

As far as fuel goes, there’s good and bad news. The good news is that cars are on average 35% more efficient than they were 10 years ago – the bad news is that pump prices have jumped by over 65% in the period.
