Camry volume rose 7% in November 2015, with its daily selling rate shooting up 17% in an abbreviated November sales month. The Camry and Accord combined for 35% market share in November 2015, up four percentage points compared with November 2014. The category was full of sharply declining vehicles in November, from the Chrysler 200’s 28% drop to the Mazda 6’s 21% drop to the Volkswagen Passat’s 60% plunge. 

This enabled the dominant Camry and Accord to be even more dominant in November than usual.

Volkswagen’s issue was three-fold. Not only is the Passat unable to generate any TDI sales, but Volkswagen gas-engine inventory was low across America because of huge incentivized sell-offs in October. Added to that was the Passat’s transition phase into the rejigged 2016 model year.

Meanwhile at Chrysler, where total FCA midsize car volume had fallen in October, the 200 on its own couldn’t match 200 volume from November 2014, let alone total 200/Avenger sales. Year-to-date, total FCA midsize car sales are up 12%.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better. This explains why you’ll see the Outback and Venza listed with midsize SUVs, too… because readers have wanted it both ways. You can always find the sales results for EVERY vehicle and form your own competitive sets by using the  All Vehicle Rankings posts.
