2015 Toyota Camry

New car sales in America were up 3% in October 2014 on strong showings from the country’s best-selling cars.

Cars which weren’t on sale at this time a year ago – TLX, V60, i3, K900, ELR, i8, 918 Spyder – added 6798 units to the passenger car market’s total October U.S. tally. The TLX, Acura’s replacement for the TL and TSX, nearly doubled the volume those two cars achieved in October 2013.

Meanwhile, the market lost volume from higher-volume nameplates like the Honda Civic (down 3174 units), Ford Focus (down 1375 units), and a further 12,148 sales via the Hyundai Sonata, Hyundai Elantra, Chevrolet Malibu, and Chevrolet Impala.

While there are numerous healthy cars with fast-growing sales, there are many others which are rapidly fading as the market gradually turns away from cars to SUVs and crossovers. U.S. sales of pickup trucks rose 10% in October; SUV and crossover volume was up 10%, as well. Car sales increased by around 17,000 units in October, however, and are up just 1% this year.

* Italicized, asterisked, unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model’s total, not in addition to the model’s total.
² Total Prius Family sales: down 13.5% to 13,511 in October; down 11.6% to 179,001 YTD.
³ BMW has chosen to include sales of the 4-Series within figures for the 3-Series, presumably for year-over-year consistency’s sake, while also combining the 1-Series and 2-Series. Hyundai does the same with the Genesis and Genesis Coupe.
† Total Infiniti G/Q50/Q60 sales: up 0.7% to 4718 in October; up 11.1% to 48,548 YTD. Total G Sedan and Q50 sales: up 4.9% to 4222 in October; up 21.3% to 42,294 YTD.
‡ Acura has chosen to combine sales figures for the RLX and its predecessor, the RL.
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 the first ten months of 2014 were 1020, 1750, 590, 142, and 750, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn’t release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but Automotive News now issues estimates for the brand, and those estimates say Tesla sold 1400 cars in October; 19,530 YTD.  HybridCars.com, however, has typically estimated much lower Model S sales, 1300 in October but only 13,200 YTD.
