Ford EcoSport emerges as November’s fastest-selling used car

Time 9:43 am, December 11, 2018

THE UK’s fastest-selling car in November was the Ford EcoSport, taking on average just 38 days for dealers to sell.

The Ford Kuga (October’s fastest selling car) and the Seat Ibiza, in second and third place, took an average of 39 and 40 days to sell respectively.

The market intelligence comes from Indicata, the real-time used vehicle management portal from Autorola UK which recorded the fastest-selling used cars out of 88,039 sold by dealers during November between six and 36 months old.

Ford was November’s most popular used car brand with three models in the top 10 – the EcoSport, the Kuga and the Fiesta.

Kia, Mercedes-Benz and Renault all had two models within the top 10.

The Range Rover Sport was the highest priced vehicle at an average of £64,015 in the top 10 selling within 49 days.

‘This monthly report is designed to provide dealers with insight into what consumers are buying helping dealers acquire new stock they know is in high demand,’ explained Neil Gilligan, Indicata national business development manager.

‘No surprises the volume brands maintain a presence within the top 10 but the appearance of the Range Rover Sport is perhaps indicative of moving into the winter months combined with its strong following within the premium used SUV sector.’

Indicata processes and analyses used car market data and translates it into live market dynamic insights, including demand, supply and pricing. This is used by dealers to help price their used car stock competitively, and to help source the in-demand used cars that will sell quickly.
