UK Car Discount Celebrates 10 Years With £60 Million Target In Sight

Share Article

Despite a difficult economy, new car sales are seeing an upturn in the UK with private buyers tempted by the lower running costs that brand new vehicles deliver. Prospective new car buyers also have alternatives to their local main dealer with online new car brokers offering some excellent deals.

One of the UK’s leading online new car dealers, UK Car Discount is celebrating 10 years in business. The company have sold over 8000 brand new vehicles to date with a value of almost £96 million pounds. “Our aim was always to deliver the best new car deals in the marketplace along with a first class and friendly service,” says Managing Director Brian Bennett. “On average we have been able to save our customers 32% on their new vehicles and we continue to deliver fantastic deals and a first class service.”

Changes in new car buying habits have meant that the average price of new cars sold by UK Car Discount back in 2003/2004 was around £15,000, but this has shifted to an average price of £12,000-£13,000 with strong demand for smaller more fuel efficient and eco-friendlier cars; the mini and super-mini sectors in particular have thrived in the last 12 months. The shift towards diesel cars has also been significant over the last few years however, petrol models seem to be making something of a comeback as manufacturers are producing significantly more fuel efficient and eco-friendlier petrol engines.

“Despite a difficult UK economy people are still buying brand new cars as they can make significant savings on running costs with many new vehicles offering lower insurance bands, excellent fuel economy and many smaller super-efficient models now offering road tax exemption,” say MD Brian Bennett -

Hybrids have become a real factor in the market now with the Toyota Pruis leading sales in the UK and we expect a further increase in the number of Hybrids on UK roads in the next few years. Further along the line as technology improves, we expect a significant increase in demand for full electric models like the Prius Plug-in and the Nissan Leaf.
