Our Take On The Midsize Cars Sales Numbers

Without GM reporting its figures, we don’t have a full picture of how many midsize sedans US consumers bought in April. However, with the majority of those that did report noting substantial drops on last April, it is unlikely that the market’s overall volume total saw growth last month.

The Mazda 6 managed to go green in April, with the boost to its figures for the month representative of an impressive 40.1% increase in its daily selling rate for the month.

Other than that, it’s another month with very little good news for nameplates in this sector.

Sales of the all-electric Nissan Leaf have continued to progress, with April finishing up with a rise of 10.2% year-on-year compared with the old model last year, despite two fewer selling days in the month this time around.
