March is typically the biggest month of the year for car sales, due to the new car registrations being released. March alone, accounts for almost a fifth of the full-year registrations and this March saw the highest British new car registrations in over a decade!
Demand for the new 14 REG plate has seen a huge rise of over 17% in new car sales and this has been great news for Ford. Blue ovals have dominated the chart, taking positions one and two, with the all-new Ford Fiesta and the new Ford Focus.
The Ford Fiesta still remains the best selling car in the UK year-to-date too. Having sold over 58% more units than the rest, it's easy to see why. With Ford's Kinetic Design style, the new Fiesta has a cutting-edge aura. The front of the car has been redesigned to include longer headlights and a new grille. There are 12 bold and beautiful body colour options available to choose from, all coming with a host of amazing technology options as well.

Figures released from the SMMT also reveal that during March, the total commercial vehicle registrations grew by 11.4% to 54,232 too.
Both business owners and fleet managers across the UK rely on Ford vehicles daily and March saw the highest monthly sales volume for Ford Commercial Vehicles since 2008.
The popular and practical Ford Transit and the award winning Ford Transit Custom are topping the chart's as the leaders in their respective segments.
"Ford's fast sales start to 2014 builds on the momentum sustained through 2013 and is a direct result of the continued investment in exciting products and industry-leading technologies" Said Mark Ovenden, Chairman of Ford Britain.
