Our Take On The Vehicle sales Numbers

*GM has now switched to quarterly reporting so figures for Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC are not up to date. We have opted against using estimated sales figures for these brands as the estimates across publications have been inconsistent.

Going forward, GoodCarBadCar will be releasing quarterly sales reports that include all figures on a quarterly basis.

The rest of the manufacturers will continue to report monthly as normal however, so for April we have the latest figures below.

Leading the way in the vehicle standings is the Ford F-Series, with April the pickup’s best ever. Almost every other Ford model on sale in the USA (with the exception of the Transit van, GT supercar and the recently-introduced EcoSport) saw sales fall year-on-year in April, with sales of Fords overall declining 4.7%.

Nissan of course was the big shock of the month, with the brand’s 28% year-on-year decline evidenced across its range. The Japanese automaker reportedly pulled back on incentive spending and decreased sales to rental companies last month, leading to almost across-the-board drops in its nameplates volume.

The SUV-focused lineups of Jeep, Subaru and Volkswagen benefited those brands, with the Wrangler continuing its hot streak last month for the FCA brand.

Other brands that didn’t manage overall growth last month still saw their lofty, large vehicles increasing in sales; the Kia Sportage CUV had its best-ever month for example, though Kia sales overall fell year-on-year after drops in its passenger car lineup’s sales.

With fuel prices hitting a high water mark in April, it will be interesting to see what impact will be had on US consumers’ attitudes towards thirsty SUVs in the coming months.
