US Passenger Car Sales Figures by Model

The GCBC Analysis

The car sales figures for the month of July and YTD don’t look too great. Predictably, the segment had a rough go of things in July of 2019 and 2019 so far.

This makes sense as more buyers are shifting to SUVs and trucks and away from cars and sales for the industry are down overall.

With that said, it wasn’t all doom and gloom. The top three cars in terms of volume all saw positive sales numbers this last month with each seeing sales rise over this time last year.

The Toyota Camry led the way with about a three percent rise in sales for the month of July. The Honda Civic was next with a sales rise of nearly 11 percent. The Toyota Corolla landed in the third spot with a rise in sales of almost 15 percent. All three of these vehicles saw drops YTD, though, so it seems July was a good month in a bad year thus far.

It’s indeed obvious that there are far more models seeing sales declines than inclines, and the segment is down roughly 171,000 units so far this year.

It’s important to note that Ford, GM, and FCA aren’t represented here as they report sales on a quarterly basis now.

Below you will find sales figures for all passenger cars sold in the United States broken down by month and by quarter.

We will report July 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Thursday, August 1st, 2019, beginning around 10 AM ET.

GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
