USA Auto Sales Brand Rankings - November 2015 YTD

2016 Ford Focus RS
A dreadful 22% decline in Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' passenger car volume – and the automaker's overall 3% year-over-year sales increase – set the stage for a day in which we learned about the overall U.S. auto industry's rude health in November 2015, and the number of consumers who didn't buy traditional cars.

Total new vehicle volume increased by just 1%, but because November 2015 was a shorter selling month than November 2014, the daily selling rate actually increased 10% from 52,107 last November to 57,313 in November 2015.


• YOY % increase small, sales still very healthy
• Ford tops all brands, Chevy ranks ahead of Toyota
• Hyundai-Kia tops among manufacturers with 7% jump
• Volvo America's fastest-growing auto brand
• Volkswagen's 25% drop worst among mainstream brands


At FCA, Jeep, Ram, minivans, and Dodge utilities accounted for 80% of the automaker's November 2015 U.S. auto sales volume. 

At Ford, the highest-volume auto brand in America, sales increased modestly in November despite a 13% drop in car volume. The F-Series' 10% uptick provided the big boost, even as SUV/crossover sales slid 10%. Lincoln, despite a raft of new product, slid 2%.


General Motors, America's largest manufacturer of automobiles, posted a modest 1.5% improvement in November. Buick tumbled 17% and GMC slid 2%, but Chevrolet sales rose 5% and Cadillac volume was up 2%. 

Toyota produced 3% gains across the board with increases from Scion, Lexus, and the Toyota brand. The Camry once again finished November as America's best-selling car, and the RAV4 was America's top-selling SUV/crossover.

Remember, every automaker had two fewer days to sell new vehicles in November 2015 than in November 2014. As a result, when you see American Honda's 5% year-over-year loss in volume, it's worth noting that American Honda's daily selling rate actually increased 3%. Regardless of which way the figures are tabulated, Accord, Civic, and Pilot sales increased by marge margins.

There are more details on other brands below the full sales table.

Red font indicates declining year-over-year volume
* Does not include Lamborghini 
^ Excluding Sprinter: down 13.1% to 30,043 in November; up 4.2% to 308,885 YTD.
° preliminary, to be finalized shortly.

Nissan reported record November group-wide sales thanks to record from both of the automaker's brands: Nissan and Infiniti. Nissan car sales slipped 4%, the automaker says, but light truck volume jumped 15%, including a 50% Rogue improvement. 

Audi produced modest year-over-year gains in November, but the A3's 21% improvement and the Q5's 8% increase were more than enough for the brand to overcome sharp A4, A6, A8, and Q7 losses.

After incentives powered Volkswagen to a sales increase in October, the brand simply couldn't keep up with the loss of all diesel sales and much of what existed in terms of positive image in November. Sales plunged 25%.


Kia sales rose 1% with gains from the Optima, Cadenza, K900, Sportage, Sorento, and Soul, but sharp decreases from the Rio subcompact and Sedona minivan. Kia's Hyundai partner produced greater gains as the new Tucson nearly doubled its November volume, as Elantra sales jumped 26%, as Accent sales jumped 44%.


At Subaru, where sales increased marginally in November, the Forester and Outback contributed 58% of the brand's sales, down from 62% a year ago.


Mitsubishi's 4% increase in November was powered largely by utility vehicles. The Outlander Sport and Outlander produced a joint 27% year-over-year improvement and seven out of every ten Mitsubishi sales.


BMW reported a 3% overal increase compared to November 2014 as X3 sales more than doubled. With Mercedes-Benz's 13% November decline to only 30,043 units, BMW expanded its year-to-date premium brand sales lead to a still-surmountable 2513 units. Mercedes-Benz's sharp GLK decline – its GLC replacement is slow in arriving – is to blame for a healthy chunk of the brand's decline. B, CLA, C, S, SL, SLK, and GL sales slid, as well.

Volvo sales nearly doubled as the brand added 2149 more XC90 sales than in November 2014, along with increases from the S60, S80, V60, and XC60, plus the addition of 269 S60 CC and V60 CC sales.


Ahead of key new launches, Jaguar sales continue their deep dive in America. However, Jaguar's partner brand, Land Rover, opposed Jaguar's  15% drop with a 79% increase in November, topped only by Volvo and ultra-low-volume Alfa Romeo.


Mazda's 7% increase was caused by a CX-5 increase, the CX-3's addition to the lineup, and a 227% MX-5 Miata improvement. Sales of the 2, 3, 5, 6, and CX-7 decreased.
