Report Updated: With October 2019 Data on November 1st, 2019
Commercial van sales in the U.S. for October looked strong, but we don’t have all of the data due to Ford, GM, and FCA’s quarterly reporting practices. The companies are an extremely important part of the segment, and without their models, we can’t really get a good read on how things are progressing.
With that said, the segment has performed extremely well so far this year. Much of this growth we would assume is due to all of the online commerce that’s occurring. With online commerce only going to increase in the coming months and years, we would expect van sales to stay high.
Of the models that we do have data for, sales look strong. One model that stands out id the Mercedes-Benz Metris. The van’s sales were up nearly 53 percent for the month of October and up by over 59 percent YTD. While other models’ sales likely won’t be that strong, the should still be good.
Below you will find sales figures for all commercial vans sold in the United States broken down by month and by quarter.
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.
