The Ford Focus led the way for sales growth, as it was the best selling diesel model for March and the year-to-date.
An interesting graph was included with SMMT's sales report, called "Change in average new car CO2 emissions by segment, 2006 vs 1997." All vehicle categories (except one, Specialist Sports), now feature decreased emissions, with the average reduction almost 12 percent in the nine years. You can see the numbers here.
