Top 20 Worst-Selling Vehicles In America – June 2016


2015 Chrysler 200

It all depends how you quantify it. But we’ll put it this way: the Chrysler 200 was the worst-selling car in America in June 2016.

Not only did the 200 post a percentage drop of 58%, because the 200 was formerly a high-volume car, this meant the 200 lost 10,743 sales for Chrysler dealers.

U.S. Vehicle Sales Rankings By Model – June 2016 YTD

The Hyundai Accent, for the sake of perspective, fell 52%. But that 52% loss equalled a more palatable 3402 lost sales for the Hyundai brand. The Accent, of course, is a continuing model. The Chrysler 200 is likely to end production in early 2017, if not sooner.

The 200’s chart-topping 58% year-over-year U.S. June sales decline stands out because we’ve added a third worst sellers format for June 2016. You can still see the 20 lowest-volume vehicles, regardless of their status. You can still see the 20 sharpest declines, as well. But now we have a separate class for the 20 worst-selling volume vehicles. We’ve established a 2500-unit marker. 
medianet_width = “336”;
medianet_height = “280”;
medianet_crid = “581244265”;
medianet_versionId = “111299”;
(function() {
var isSSL = ‘https:’ == document.location.protocol;
var mnSrc = (isSSL ? ‘https:’ : ‘http:’) + ‘//contextual.media.net/nmedianet.js?cid=8CU1KO3O7’ + (isSSL ? ‘&https=1’ : ”);
document.write(”);
})();
In June, the first month of establishing this new 20 Worst Sellers format, nearly half of the vehicles are mainstream brand passenger cars from the subcompact, compact, and midsize market: Chrysler 200, Hyundai Accent, Dodge Dart, Ford Fiesta, Kia Optima, Volkswagen Golf, Volkswagen Jetta, Hyundai Sonata, Mazda 6.
