2013 US Auto Sales Figures – By Brand (Brand Rankings)
2013 U.S. Automotive Sales by Brand – The Best-Selling Automotive Brands By Sales Volume
Americans car buyers registered 15.6 million new vehicles in 2013, a significant 7.5% year-over-year increase compared with 2012’s twelve months. More new vehicles were purchased and leased in 2013 than in any year since 2007. No manufacturer sold more vehicles than General Motors. No specific brand sold more vehicles than Ford, which generates three out of every ten of its sales with the F-Series pickup truck.
No premium brand outsold Mercedes-Benz, even if you exclude the Sprinter commercial van, a product which isn’t exactly a 7-Series alternative. The biggest year-over-year improvement, percentage-wise, belonged to Maserati, which is beginning to put up measurable numbers. Jaguar’s 41% increase was also noteworthy, but among volume brands, Subaru’s 26% jump was best. Suzuki disappeared, leaving Volvo’s 10% year-over-year decline to stand out as the worst. Smart, Scion, Volkswagen, Kia, Infiniti, Chrysler, Fiat, and Lincoln were the only other brands to sell fewer vehicles in 2013 than in 2012.
