Ford filled the top three places in Wales’ best selling cars in April as the region dramatically out-performed the rest of the country.
Fiesta, Kuga and Focus accounted for 760 registrations and comfortably beat the next, VW Golf.
The Vauxhall Mokka X just outsold the Ford EcoSport and they led over the Dacia Sandero. The Vauxhall Viva was ahead of the Peugeot 3008 and just one sale infront of the VW Polo, which completed the top ten.
Welsh sales last month totalled 6,002, a 32.4% improvement over the same month last year as UK sales combined reached 167,911, about 10.5% up.
The growth of AFVs rose nearly 50% but diesel dipped 25%, however the hybrid and electric sales amount to just 5.6% of all sales, with petrol holding nearly 64%.
The poor weather in March is thought to have delayed some new sales into April and there were two additional selling days due to the Easter break. Within the market, retail registrations went up 26.3%, with a lot taking out PCPs and the best performing models were superminis and cross-overs.
The SMMT, which compiles the figures, said the uplift is encouraging but warned that political and economic uncertainty could affect business and lead to further instability and disruption to sales recovery.
Britain’s top ten in April were: Fiesta, Golf, Qashqai, Focus, Corsa, Kuga, MB A Class, MINI, MokkaX and MB C Class.
