Ford Kuga Among Top 25 Best Selling Cars In October 2023

The Ford Kuga is a pretty popular vehicle overseas, consistently earning a spot on the charts when it comes to popularity. The Kuga PHEV scored the honors as most popular PHEV in October 2023, and according to the latest data from JATO Dynamics, the gasoline-powered Kuga has also been recognized as one of the top 25 best-selling vehicles in the region during the same time period as well.

Specifically, the Ford Kuga slotted into 24th place among its peers, having sold 10,485 units, up nine percent year-over-year. It outperformed only the Volvo XC40, which placed 25th with 10,301 sales.

Meanwhile, up front, the Dacia Sandero (22,335) was the best-selling vehicle in October, followed by the Fiat/Abarth 500 (15,426), Renault Clio (15,408), Yaris Cross (15,401), Citroen C3 (14,592) and Peugeot 208 (14,500). The Ford Puma (14,002) claimed eighth, outpacing the Volkswagen Polo (13,782), Opel/Vauxhall Corsa (13,755), Kia Sportage (13,538), Volkswagen T-Roc (13,334), Hyundai Tucson (12,915), Fiat Panda (12,801), Skoda Octavia (12,359), Volkswagen Golf (12,230), Renault Captur (12,234), Toyota Corolla (11,678), Mini Hatch (11,632), Audi A3 (11,094), Toyota Yaris (10,798), Tesla Model Y (10,774), and Nissan Qashqai (10,623) in 23th, just ahead of the Ford Kuga.

Meanwhile, The Blue Oval itself earned the title of 11th-best brand in terms of new vehicle registrations during October, down 10 percent to 43,840 units.

Across the board, new vehicle registrations in Europe increased 14 percent year-over-year to 1,040,278 units during October 2023, compared to 909,724 units in October 2022. This is the 15th consecutive month of positive growth, an encouraging result considering the current economic scenario of swelling inflation and rising interest rates. So far in 2023, new vehicle registrations have reached 10,677,402, up 17 percent on a year-over-year basis.

According to JATO, this signals that the European market is strong and resilient and prepared to withstand a potential economic slide in the coming months, while the increased demand for electric vehicles suggests that incentives are playing a critical role in stimulating interest.
