Car Sales

The BMW 5 series has become the top selling car in Ireland, yes the luxury diesel has beaten the odds and out sold the Yaris, Shane Teskey Director of http://www.motorcheck.ie said that “With 349 vehicles registered last month (all of them diesel) the 5 Series outsold the runner up (Toyota’s Yaris) by 151 units. The figure represents an impressive 10% of all diesel cars registered in Ireland in August and proves that luxury cars are still on the shopping list for Irish car buyers.”

Other interesting statistics for last month include:

  • 5,315 New Cars were registered in August – up dramatically on last years August total of 2,347
  • The Top Selling Make for August was Toyota with 687 registrations
  • Over 51% of registrations were in Band B continuing the trend of eco-friendly motoring
  • Over 68% of cars registered were Diesel models
  • Black and Silver are still the most popular colours with 26% and 24% of registrations respectively
  • The leading county for registrations was Dublin with 1,987 registrations (37%) with Leitrim recording just 26 (0.5%) new cars sold.
