MANCHESTER, ENGLAND, May 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Since its in inception in 2003 UK Car Discount has sold well over 8000 brand new cars approaching a value of GBP100 million pounds. From small relatively low cost entry-level vehicles to high-end premium vehicles the company has managed to deliver to a large and diverse range of satisfied customers.
"In our 10+ years we have seen other online dealers disappear off the radar but through hard economic times we managed to keep a full sales book which we put down to our top class service and excellent savings, giving our customers on average 30% in discount". said Director Brian Bennett.
"At UK Car Discount you won't find any car dealer cliches, there's no fast talking sales person or high pressure sales, we just offer an honest, knowledgeable service and let the discounts do the talking!"
UK Car Discount have also teamed up with leading UK finance companies to offer very competitive new car finance options for both business and personal customers. Customers also have the option to purchase the vehicle outright or arrange their own finance/loan.
New car trends and car buying habits have changed dramatically in the last 10 years since UK Car Discount sold its first new vehicle. The typical price of a brand new car sold back then was approximately GBP15,000, however demand in recent years has moved towards smaller, more economical vehicles, with a large number of sales of small cars valued at GBP12,000-GBP13,000. New car buyers are being attracted by the drastically reduced running costs that these new super-efficient vehicles offer. Small cars and the super-mini class of vehicle has flourished with Britain's best-selling new car the new Ford Fiesta topping the UK best sellers list for some years now.
As motor companies develop new technology and smarter ways to build cars we are seeing lighter vehicles with more efficient engines plus the addition of clever technology like stop/start systems for example. The result is large gains in fuel economy along with lower CO2 emissions. The trend for diesel powered cars has been bucked somewhat in the last few years with a wave of new cars powered by more efficient petrol engines like Fords Ecoboost technology.
On top of the mainstream petrol and diesel powered cars there is off course the emergence of hybrid powered vehicles. Toyota is leading the UK market at the moment in this sector with the flagship Toyota Prius and they also now offer the Auris Hybrid which is about as close as you can get to a Prius and its' serine drive but a cheaper alternative. Of course full electric vehicles are slowly making strides and we fully expect in the next 10 years to see a lot more of them on the roads as the technology is further improved and they become more practical.
The new technology and reduced running costs has certainly helped the new car industry in recent years despite a difficult economy. Prospective new car buyers have been able to offset the cost of a new car against the big savings they can make on their ongoing costs with a brand new car.
"UK Car Discount is looking forward to another 10 years and hopes to continue to offer big savings to our customers whilst staying loyal to our policy of excellent discounts and an honest, friendly service!"
