USA Auto Sales Brand Rankings - June 2013 YTD

2013 Dodge Charger Daytona blue
With U.S. sales expected to reach a seasonally adjusted annual rate of around 15.7 million units in June 2013, we anticipated some significant year-over-year improvements from numerous automakers in June 2013.

Indeed, the U.S. SAAR reached 15.98 million with plenty of help from Subaru (up 42%), BMW (up 25%), Nissan (up 16%) and big gains from America's top trucks at Ford, General Motors, Ram, and even Toyota. 

Overall, the U.S. auto industry rose 9.1% in June 2013 and 7.5% in the first six months of 2013. 13.7% of the new vehicles sold were pickup trucks. 46.8% of the new vehicles sold were Detroit products from FoMoCo, GM, and the Chrysler Group. European automakers, excluding Fiat, were responsible for 8.6% of industry-wide sales. Japanese brands, including Subaru, which outsold Volkswagen, brought in 35.9% of buyers. Hyundai and Kia's market share stood at 8.2%.


Hyundai's 2% year-over-year increase wasn't massive, at just 1194 units, but it did bring Hyundai up to a record level for June sales, propelled by the Elantra's 26% jump. Chrysler, Dodge, and Ram all posted their best June since 2007 - it was Jeep's best June since 2005. Without the 500L, Fiat USA sales were down 12% in June 2013. Ford MoCo sales shot up to their highest level since 2006 with help from the F-Series' best June since 2005. 

Diesel engines were in 24.3% of the Volkswagens sold in the United States in June. Diesels are accounting for a higher percentage of Volkswagen USA sales than ever before. General Motors hasn't sold this many vehicles since September of 2008. Subaru has sold 40,293 more vehicles this year than last, helped in no small part by the surprisingly popular XV Crosstrek.

The whole Toyota/Lexus/Scion group is up by 62,695 units. Scion, however, took a hard hit as all five models reported significant year-over-year declines. The first half of 2013 was Audi USA's best first half in the company's history. BMW 3-Series sales rose 63% in June - it was responsible for four in ten BMW sales. 

Acura reported its second consecutive year-over-year decline. Its Honda parent brand was up by 13,712 units in June with improvements from Fiat, Accord, Civic, Odyssey, Pilot, CR-V, and Ridgeline. Excluding Sprinter van sales, Mercedes-Benz leads BMW by 1519 sales so far this year. Nissan sold more vehicles than in any June in history. 49.3% of Porsche sales in June were Cayenne-derived, some way up on the 45% year-to-date total. For the third time this year, Kia sales were down despite the introduction of the new Cadenza.

  1. You're counting Smart and/or Sprinter sales in with Mercedes, that is incorrect. Mercedes was 24,415 for June 2013.

  2. As the text states, excluding Sprinter vans, Mercedes-Benz leads BMW by 1519 units YTD. Mercedes-Benz, including Sprinter, sold 26,381 vehicles in June, as the table asserts. Including Smart, in the Daimler line near the bottom of the post, there were 27,162 June sales. Sprinter sales do occur, just as E-Series sales occur at Ford and NV200 sales occur at Nissan. Just because M-B is perceived on this continent as "premium" or "luxury" doesn't mean Daimler AG doesn't sell Sprinter vans. These facts are not hidden at other brands nor will they be at M-B.

  3. Where's Subaru?

  4. Have no clue what you're talking about. Mercedes-Benz sold 24,415 passenger vehicles for June 2014. A Sprinter cargo van should not be counted in that total. No other luxury brand is selling such a vehicle and it is just sheer erroneous information to keep listing Sprinter vans in with Mercedes cars/suvs. They should listed separately like everyone else lists them. Even Mercedes doesn't count them in with the MB brand passenger car sales. No one is trying to hide anything, but your figures are wrong.

  5. The fact that Mercedes-Benz is a "luxury brand", a term that is quickly becoming more and more meaningless, does not alter the fact that commercial vans are routinely counted in a manufacturer's total. Commercial vans are counted in Ford's total, Chevrolet's total, GMC's total, Ram's total, and Nissan's total. These facts are not hidden behind a veil at GCBC - commercial van sales for June and YTD have already been broken down in a separate post. Sales figures for every separate vehicle line are isolated in their own respective posts, accessible from many points of entry at GCBC. That the Sprinter does not mesh with the remainder of M-B's lineup has no bearing on the matter: an NV200 isn't exactly an Altima, either. No manufacturer competes with any other manufacturer on a like-for-like basis. The fact that BMW doesn't have a commercial van to lineup against the Sprinter can't be considered to be any more of a skewer of numbers than the fact that BMW doesn't market a junior supercar like the SLS AMG or a 5-Series wagon or a G-Class fighter.

  6. You don't get it so just continue to post the wrong information. This isn't about what the MB brand is, nor is it about who reports what. What you don't get is that Mercedes doesn't even report the numbers for the Mercedes brand in the manner that you're doing it. What part of that is so hard to grasp here? I mean seriously. They don't count vans in their own totals.

  7. Yes, and Toyota's release suggests the Prius is but one car, while Hyundai USa doesn't separate the Genesis and Genesis Coupe and Chrysler hasn't correctly called their Dodge minivan by the proper name in eons. What automakers choose to do in their press releases doesn't have to be taken at face value. If your argument is that the Sprinter's total should be removed from M-B's total it would make much more sense to GCBC (and other outlets) that include it if you also argued for the E-Series/TranCon/Savana/Express/NV/RamCV to be excluded as well. None bear any relation to what goes in in showrooms with Mustangs, Cruzes, Jukes, and 300s.

  8. Those are volume brands I'm specifically talking about luxury brands/cars. Putting a Sprinter in the MB total is just wrong. It is a commercial vehicle. Ford and Chevy and Nissan are irrelevant to me. Don't care what they report. Putting a commercial van in a MB total to say they lead BMW, Audi, Lexus etc is just disingenuous.

  9. Sadly, the world of auto sales reporting does not revolve around that which you, or even I, deem to be relevant. I would be content to exclude all commercial vans, but that treads a fine line, as many sales of trucks are commercial-oriented, not to mention the struggle with defining "commercial" as it applies to cop cars, etc. But the definition of MB and Lexus and BMW (and others) as something other than volume brands is a definition in decline. It's already been put out to pasture in Europe, where 3-Series and C-Class are top sellers, and the idea of a CLA-Class Benz being somehow less volume-oriented than a Honda CR-V will bring us closer to this point in North America, as well. However, industry practice includes commercial vans in brand totals. The Sprinter is a Benz, and Benz is a builder of automobiles, just as Chevrolet is.

  10. Its a stupid way to report the numbers but hey do whatever you like. You keep talking about Chevy and Mercedes in the same breath so it is obvious you don't get it. I just won't reference this lonely site anymore. What a retarded answer man, but hey its yours do as you like.
