In the brands ranking, after ending October at a record 2nd place, BMW (-7.3%) scores its first ever monthly win in the UK with 7.8% share vs. 7.2% so far this year. It topples Volkswagen (-14.5%) down to 7.5% share vs. 9% YTD while Audi (-13.6%) is up two spots on last month to #3. Mercedes (-6.3%) remains in 4th place with Vauxhall (-10.4%) in tow. Below, Toyota (+29.5%), Hyundai (+192.6%) and Kia (+72.3%) all lodge explosive growth. This means the traditional leader Ford (-50.4%) is in complete freefall to a worst-ever 9th place overall. Peugeot (+12.5%) rounds out the Top 10 in strong fashion. Below, MG (+383.1%) is up almost 5-fold on a year ago to #13, Tesla (+230.9%) is up 23 spots on October to #16 and Cupra (+1425.5%), Polestar (+289.3%), Ssangyong (+225%), Subaru (+217.3%), Bentley (+143.5%), Smart (+103%), DS (+48.6%), Dacia (+42.8%), Fiat (+36.4%), Mazda (+29.4%), Mini (+18.1%) and Citroen (+16.3%) all post solid year-on-year upticks.

We have another very volatile models ranking this month as the market fragments further and market shares lower. The Mini Hatch (+24.2%) scores its first ever win and a 3.1% share is enough to do so. In 2nd place the Vauxhall Corsa (-16%) is back up three spots on October and cements its YTD leadership. The Tesla Model 3 returns to the Top 10 at a brilliant third place, while the Hyundai Tucson is up six spots to break its ranking record at #4 (previous best #6 last August). Below the Ford Focus (-11.8%) down one rank to #5, the MG ZS breaks into the UK Top 10 for the first time at #6 with 2.1% share. The Mercedes A-Class (-28.2%) is down drastically but snaps the 2nd place YTD in the process while the VW T-Roc and Volvo XC40 also manage a Top 10 finish. Note that despite ranking #1 brand, BMW has no nameplate in the November Top 10 vs. 3 for Volkswagen. The Ford Puma (-95.1%) and Fiesta (-96%) are completely annihilated by the microchip shortage this month.
