U.S. Auto Sales Figures by Brand

The GCBC Analysis

The month of September didn’t appear to be a very great month for the majority of the brands. There were 11 brands total that saw sales rise during the month.

When you look YTD, the numbers look far better. In fact, there was a majority of brands that saw sales increase. This would mean that the month of September wasn’t so great for the U.S. market but this year hasn’t been quite so bad overall.

Still, the U.S. market was down both for the month of September and so far this year. When you look at the month alone, there were about 179,000 fewer sales than this month last year. When you look YTD, the U.S was down roughly 248,000 units.

We will report September 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Tuesday, October 1st, 2019, beginning around 10 AM ET.

Below you will find US sales figures for all of the major auto brands broken down by month and by quarter.
