November 2012 passenger car sales figures in the United States were strong. Collectively rising 18.1% even as U.S. light truck sales fell 9.6%, the car market grew in large part due to big gains made by cars like the Buick Verano (only barely on sale at this time last year), Ford Focus, Honda Civic, Mazda 2, Subaru Impreza, Honda Accord, Subaru Outback, and Toyota Camry.

As you saw last week, the Civic unseated the Camry as America’s best-selling car in November 2012. Civic sales rose by 12,942 units compared with November 2011. Year-to-date, Civic sales are up by 84,101 units. It’s America’s fifth-best-selling vehicle overall and clearly the best-selling small car in the nation.

Up a size and price category, the Camry’s domination may well result in 400,000+ units in 2012. The Accord is surging – its November 2012 year-over-year gain of 82% makes that clear – and the midsize Honda could provide a more meaningful challenge to the Toyota Camry’s best-selling status next year. 

Chrysler sold 13,943 vehicles off their big car platform in November 2012. The Dodge Challenger, which will be seen in GCBC’s sporty car sales post, accounted for 2868 of those sales. The Chrysler 300 and Dodge Charger were responsible for the bulk of the big car sales at Chrysler, 79% in all and 30% of passenger car sales at the Chrysler Group.
