LONDON, England - Jeep’s growing momentum in the UK continues as figures show new car registrations rose by 397% in March 2015 compared to the same period last year.
The ‘Go Anywhere, Do Anything’ brand registered 2190 new cars last month, compared to 441 in March 2014, giving Jeep a 0.4% market share against 0.1% last year.
It’s the 19th consecutive month of year-on-year sales growth for the Jeep brand in the UK and was Jeep’s second-best month ever in the UK after August 1997 – a time when there was only one registration plate change a year.
The impressive result is further put in into perspective when registrations for the whole of 2011 (2146 cars) and 2010 (2078 cars) are considered. It also means Jeep was the fastest-growing car brand in the UK during the first quarter.
The head of brand, Jeep UK, Damien Dally, said: “A total of 19 consecutive months of growth tells its own story
“But when you see the sheer size of the increase in March 2015, compared to where we were this time last year, you really get a feel for how firmly Jeep has put itself back into customers’ considerations.
“We are bringing a new choice to UK drivers - against some tough competition - and we’re re working hard to ensure this current success will continue.”
