Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In America – March 2014


2014 Kia K900
Kia’s $59,500 K900 Only Just
Went On Sale, But It’ll Stay Rare

Three GM pickup trucks – one expired and two on hiatus – ranked as America’s three worst-selling vehicles vehicles in March 2014, when measured by year-over-year percentage declines. 

Sales of the Colorado, Avalanche, and Canyon all fell by more than 99%. 

Among America’s 20 worst-selling vehicles in March, those three were joined by just nine continuing nameplates, vehicles as high-profile and low-volume as the Porsche Boxster and as high-profile and high-volume as the soon-to-be-replaced Chrysler 200.

GCBC has also inserted a list of the 20 worst-selling vehicles measured by actual March volume, a list which includes the brand new Kia K900 and the slow-selling two-door flagships from Chrysler and Cadillac. And also the Acura ZDX.

You can always select a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page to find historical monthly and yearly sales figures from both Canada and the United States. Pertinent links are clickable at the bottom of this post, but you can also find related links at the Best Sellers page.
