2019 U.S Passenger Car Sales Analysis

Report Updated: With October 2019 Data on November 1st, 2019

Passenger car sales in the U.S. were down for the month of October and YTD. This follows a larger trend in the industry where more buyers are turning to SUVs and trucks and away from standard passenger cars.

The segment is down about 11,000 units for the month of October when compared to this month last year. When you look at the YTD numbers, the segment is down a whopping 217,000 sales. This isn’t really a surprise. The segment has been trending down for several months now.

While there were some vehicles that saw sales increase for both the month and YTD, most saw drops in sales for both metrics. It will be interesting to see how the segment performs in the future.
