In other words, precisely one year after reporting the best-ever ELR sales total, Cadillac lost more than three quarters of the ELR’s sales volume in the brand’s home market. With only 45 sales reported, August 2015 was the lowest-volume month for the ELR since January 2014.
Inventory at the beginning of August wasn’t particularly high, of course, as Cadillac prepares to switch over to the 2016 ELR, which should be better than the original.
The ELR was not the worst-selling vehicle in America in August 2015, not when measured by year-over-year percentage decline; not when measured by outright volume. The majority of cars which declined more rapidly, however, were discontinued models. And the majority of cars which genuinely sold less often were either discontinued, on hiatus, or enormously more costly.

Source: Automakers & ANDC Vehicles which sold at least once in August 2014 but not at all in August 2015: Volvo C70, Subaru Tribeca, Acura ZDX, Chevrolet Avalanche, Mercedes-Benz R-Class, Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. Volvo sold 50 S60 Cross Countrys, a low enough figure to crack the top 20 in August, but we do not include vehicles in their first month on sale.
Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce do not release monthly sales data. Bentley and Maserati do not report model-specific sales data.
