Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In America - 2014 Year End

Few continuing nameplates make appearances on these lists of the 20 worst-selling vehicles in America in 2014. (Those that do are especially noteworthy.) For the most part, the vehicles which recorded the sharpest year-over-year declines over the last twelve months are expired nameplates: Avalanche, Veracruz, Routan, Avenger.

Others, however, are waiting for replacements. The Volvo XC90 is ancient, and the second-gen version won't be here until spring 2015. In 2014, XC90 sales plunged 42%. The Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is being phased out in favour of the Mercedes-Benz AMG GT: SLS sales dropped 49% to 232 units in 2014. 

Meanwhile, among America's lowest-volume vehicles in 2014 are a number of vehicles which didn't have the whole year to generate activity. 

The Chevrolet Trax, for instance, only went on sale in 2014's final month; the Alfa Romeo 4C arrived in November. But mixed in with those cars and a number of defunct automobiles are other uncommon cars. 

Indeed, many are meant to be rare. Audi's R8 total in 2014 was only 14% off the average U.S. R8 sales pace from the previous six years.

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.
