Midsize car sales in November didn’t look too great. The segment was down when compared with this month last year. This is a common trend for the year so far. YTD, the segment is down considerably.
Looking at the overall sales numbers for the segment, the segment was down by about 1,000 units in the month of November. When you look at the YTD sales totals, you’ll see that the segment is down about 90,000 units.
Leading the pack overall is the Camry. It had a good month and was up by about four percent for the month of November. YTD was a different story it was down over a percent so far.
The YTD numbers look especially bad. There were only three models that didn’t see sales decline. One of them was the VW Arteon, which is a new model, so there’s no historical sales data to compare to.
We expect to continue to see sales slip in the coming month that will finish up 2019. Sales should follow a similar trend in 2020.
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.
