UK’s top 10 fastest selling used cars for 2018 revealed

The Ford Ka was the UK’s fastest selling used car in 2018 – and an electric car also made the top 10 for the first time.


Data from Indicata UK has revealed the fastest-selling used cars in the UK during 2018. It recorded how long dealers took to sell 1.1 million cars between six and 36 months old last year – and it turns out the Ford Ka took an average of just 32 days for dealers to sell.

The second fastest selling used car was the Hyundai ix35 at an average of 34 days, with the Ford Galaxy in third place selling in 36 days.

In joint fourth with the Dacia Logan was the Renault Zoe. Given it’s an electric car, this is a big surprise, but Indicata believes this reinforces the fact that there’s a growing demand for used electric cars.

At the other end of the list were three Subaru cars: the Outback, Forester and XV, which took 103, 105 and 107 days to sell respectively.

Neil Gilligan, national business development manager at Indicata UK, said: “Overall, the used vehicle market in 2018 was very buoyant and used cars were in high demand. Ford dominated the used market in 2018, while SUVs and small hatchbacks remain the nation’s most popular used car types.

“We are pleased to see the Renault Zoe in the top 10 as it’s a strong sign that electric cars are beginning to be accepted in the used market. Without this acceptance as a used car, new EV sales will always struggle to thrive.

“Competitive personal leasing and contract hire monthly rates are reliant on a car having strong residual values, and we may start to see electric car costs fall over the coming 12 months if used cars like the Zoe continue to be in such high demand.”
