Our Take On The Passenger Car Numbers

July was not a good month for passenger cars, with a day less selling time in this year’s seventh month than last compounding woes.

Sharing the second-place spot for the month, the Toyota Camry and Honda Civic sold an identical amount of vehicles. Supply issues are hampering the compact Civic’s progress at this point in the year.

Making a surprise appearace in July’s top 10 is the Tesla Model 3. With Elon Musk’s company having doubled its output compared in Q2 compared with the same period in 2017, its foray into the entry-level luxury EV market has given the segment somewhat of a shock.

For comparison, in July BMW sold 3185 3-Series’, while Mercedes-Benz sold 3841 examples of the C-Class. In the same period, Tesla sold in the region of 14,000 Model 3s.
