Our Take On The Passenger Car Numbers
With manufacturers ending the first half of 2018 singing the praises of their high-margin, high-riding, high-demand SUVs and light trucks, the picture in the US passenger car segment is much less rosy.
Cast your eyes at the table below and you’ll notice quite a lot of red columns. Of the higher-volume models in the segment (the top-20, say), only three models are ahead of where they were at this point in 2017.
In June, the Honda Civic once again edged out the Toyota Camry for the top-spot, with it and fellow compact the Hyundai Elantra the only two smaller nameplates to manage a bit of year-on-year growth last month.
Sporty car sales similarly failed to bring salvation; the market leader there, the Ford Mustang, increased sales by almost 20% year-on-year on June 2017’s figures, but year-to-date remains behind.
Very few luxury marques also managed to make any ground in June – the BMW 5-Series managed to stick its head above the parapet. A 6% year-on-year increase in June carries on its good run, and the nameplate sits 21% ahead year-to-date, as many other vehicles in its segment failed to go green on our chart.
