March 2013 U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings - Top 146 Best-Selling Cars In America - Every Car Ranked

2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid
According to this list of 146 vehicles, 1,961,543 passenger cars were sold in the first quarter of 2013; 777,558 in March 2013. 

Those numbers differ slightly from what you'd read at, say, Automotive News. They include estimates for brands like Ferrari and Lamborghini and totals from the Maserati and Bentley brands. Their figures won't include the Subaru XV Crosstrek, which they count with "light trucks" or the Mercedes-Benz R-Class, which GCBC has decided to consider a wagon.

One way or another, Toyota sold more than 100,000 Camrys in the first quarter of 2013. That's down sharply from the same period last year, but it still means the Camry outsold the bottom 69 cars from this list, combined.

Earlier this month GoodCarBadCar compiled complete sales figures for all pickup trucks, every minivan, and all commercial vans. A list just like this one is coming up (click) for SUVs and crossovers. The All Vehicle Rankings post, in which every model for which sales data is known is ranked, features 255 vehicles.


Those full rankings included the following paragraphs: "GoodCarBadCar never ceases to remind its readers that they can always access historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any vehicle by selecting a make and/or model at the Sales Stats page. The Best Sellers page finds you many more lists just like this one, although most are shorter.


And please don't forget that this table is completely sortable. This means by clicking the Car button in the table heading you can rank vehicles alphabetically. Or if you just want to see how vehicles fared in March, click the March 2013 header. These are year-to-date rankings, so you'll continue to see their quarterly finishing order at the far left no matter how you choose to sort the list.

Also, let's do the internet a favour by sourcing GoodCarBadCar.net if you're compiling data based on the information already compiled in this list, and let's not just rip the code for your own Harare-hosted "news" blog. One can only hope."

Red font indicates year-over-year declining sales
Italicized unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model's total, not in addition to the model's total. Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. ANDC estimates say sales for those brands in March were 69, 162, 46, 22, and 84, respectively. Total Maserati and Bentley volume is reported, but not by specific models. Tesla says it sold 4750 Model S sedans in the first quarter but refuses to release specific monthly sales data.

* Prius is now listed by model variant rather than as a family. Prius Family sales are down 8.4% to 55,724 this year; down 22.9% to 22,140 in March 2013.
