Interestingly, General Motors sold more cars in August than it had in any month all year. Yet the story is still gloomy. Nissan, Infiniti, Mini, Subaru, and Volkswagen managed to avoid posting worse numbers in the eighth month of ’08; something no other automaker could do in America’s struggling marketplace. Take a look for yourself – the story ain’t pretty.
These are the Numbers from all mainstream manufacturers competing in the United States of America in August of 2008, arranged in order of total sales. That way you won’t indulge yourself with extreme joy, suggesting that Mini sells better than Chevrolet just because its sales rocketed upward. Got it? Okay.
