A Happy New Year from 67 Degrees – Our End of Year Roundup!

December 30, 2022

What a year it’s been! As the end of 2022 arrives and us elves here at 67 Degrees wind down for the year, albeit briefly, we’re taking the opportunity to look back across twelve months that have seen us welcome many new dealers across the UK to our family. 

By helping our car dealers future-proof their business regardless of the turbulent economic conditions (we’ve all seen plenty of that this year), we’ve had one of our most satisfying years yet – here are some of our best bits as we reflect on 2022…  

Our favourite websites of 2022 

Last week, we talked about the websites that have really wowed us this year; while we’re proud of every single site we’ve put live this year, there are a few that have stood out in particular for our team. It’s always a pleasure to design and build websites that really excite us; here are our favourites from the last twelve months. 

The year in numbers 

If you know anything about us here at 67 Degrees, you’ll know that we get a bit nerdy over the numbers, so it’s no surprise that we’ve done a bit of a data download from our platform. By taking a look at the trends from the 35,079 cars on our platform in 2022 (yes, you read that right, over 35,000!), we’ve been able to see what manufacturers, colours and fuel types have come out on top.

Here is the full roundup of stats, including some pretty impressive totals of our own, such as total value of the vehicles sold, and the total number of reservations made through 67 Degrees websites…

Looking ahead to 2023 

We’re so excited to see where the next year takes us, and we’ve already got some beautiful designs in the pipeline for launch in the early part of 2023. We’re committed to further improving our platform, remaining hungry for knowledge and expertise, and meeting many more fantastic business owners within the automotive industry. See you there!
