USA Auto Sales Brand Rankings - September 2013 YTD

2013 Fiat 500
Fiat 500 Sales Fell 49% In September 2013
Not only did America's auto industry reap the benefits of Labour Day weekend sales in September 2012, last September also featured two extra days of car selling compared with September 2013. As a result, total sales are expected to fall from a volume perspective in September 2013 even as the auto industry sold more vehicles per day last month.

Take Hyundai, for example. The brand's daily sales rate (DSR) rose 4%, although Hyundai USA volume slid 8.2% in September 2013. The Toyota trio of brands was down 4%, but its DSR rose 4%.


Overall, the market's 4.4% drop to 1.14 million new vehicle sales translated to a DSR which grew 4%.

Red font indicates declining year-over-year volume
*Does not include Lamborghini
* Excluding Sprinter, Mercedes-Benz was up 6.7% to 24,697 in September; up 12.2% to 215,056 year-to-date.

Subtracting Fiat from Chrysler's equation shows that volume at the group's four Detroit brands increased 1.4% year-over-year. Ford Motor Company wasn't troubled by the delayed and shorter September: the Ford brand sold more vehicles in September 2013 than Ford and Lincoln combined in September 2012. And Ford once again sold more than 60,000 F-Series pickups. 

Volkswagen continued its downward swing as Jetta sedan volume slid 9%, Golf volume fell 35%, and Passat sales dropped 17%. VW's Audi division, however, rose 6% thanks to ever-increasing Q5 volume and a substantial uptick in the sales of its other best seller, the A4. 

General Motors found gains at its two lowest-volume brands, but Chevrolet sales slid 15% and the GMC brand fell 10%. Subaru sold more vehicles than during any previous September in the brand's U.S. history. Nissan's Leaf outsold the Chevrolet Volt by 187 units in September and closed the year-to-date gap to just 684 units. 

Honda's DSR was down 0.7% as Accord volume fell by 4006 units. 45% of the Porsches sold were Cayennes. 

The 3 and CX-5 accounted for two-thirds of Mazda volume. Blame for Kia's 21% decline in September can be laid at the feet of the Rio, Forte, Optima, Sportage, Sorento, Sedona, and Soul, all of which posted year-over-year decreases in volume. 

Mercedes-Benz's new CLA-Class contributed 2310 sales to the brand's total in its first month on sale.

  2. Tesla has never reported any monthly sales figures. What we know about the Model S can be found here: http://www.goodcarbadcar.net/2013/08/tesla-model-s-sales-figures-usa-canada.html

  3. It is ultimate information shared her as I am d concern how such information is gathered as it takes time but from the sales report it is clear that such cars are loved by people for various purposes such for business like cab services through http://luxurycabservice.com.au/ along with making to travel trip in more luxurious way.
