Midsize car sales dropped again in the month of October when compared with this same month last year. The segment has had a rough go of things all of 2019.
When you look at the month of October alone, you’ll see that it is down by about 1,000 units. The segment is down so far this year by about 8,000 units.
The leader for the segment was the Toyota Camry, but it was down considerably for the month and down just a bit for the year so far. The Toyota Prius Family and the Honda Accord rounded out the top three models. The Honda saw significant sales declines for the year and the month of October, but the Prius Family saw notable sales rises for the month of October and YTD.
We expect the segment as a whole to keep seeing sales drop. However, we would expect some models, specifically hybrid and alternative powertrain models to see sales rise.
Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. 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.
