Honda Released This Updated 2013 Model
There is yet more data to come relating to hybrids and diesel and electric powertrains (some of which has already been added). For now, every ounce of available information supplied by the manufacturers as it relates to these 265 vehicles has been posted in the table below.
This is where you’ll see that 2.4% of all the Honda Civics sold in 2012 have been hybrids; that 13.8% of all the Volkswagen Jettas sold have been SportWagens; that 16.1% of all Subaru Impreza sales are of the WRX variety; that the Allroad accounts for 7.7% of Audi A4 sales; that Mitsubishi managed to find 449 Eclipse Spyder buyers in the first eleven months of 2012; and that more than out of every ten Ford Taurus sales ends up as a Police Interceptor.
Mercedes-Benz’s U.S. Dealers Have Sold 251 More SLS AMGs In
2012 Than Mitsubishi’s U.S. Dealers Have Sold All-Electric i MiEVs
But there’s much more to this list than bodystyle breakdowns. In 241st spot, the Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG is just eleven sales ahead of the Audi R8. Despite the praise heaped upon modern subcompacts and their increasing popularity, the highest-ranked car in the class is only America’s 40th-best-selling vehicle. Yes, five pickup trucks sell more often than the most popular subcompact. Not to mention the sub-subcompacts, often referred to as city cars. The Chevrolet Spark sits in 165th, the smart fortwo ranks 176th, and the Scion iQ is in 181st. Throw the Mini Cooper and Fiat 500 in that group and city cars still don’t rank any better than 85th and 86th, respectively. Yes, the 500, with two bodystyles, is now just 814 sales behind the Mini, a five-strong product line.
The Chrysler 200 Was Booted From The Top 30 By The Honda Odyssey
The biggest moves up from their October rankings were completed by the Cadillac ATS (+14), Subaru XV Crosstrek (+12), BMW X1 (+11), Dodge Dart (+10), Cadillac XTS (+6), and the Chevrolet Spark (+6). Oh, and don’t forget the Ford C-Max, which ranked 210th through ten months (having only been on sale at that point for two months) but ended November as the 177th-best-selling vehicle in America. That’s a jump of 33 positions, a jump enabled by the C-Max’s 4848-unit November.

Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Maybach, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. estimates say sales for those brands through November were 748, 1650, 440, 221, 42, and 352, respectively.
