U.S. Auto Sales By Brand – June 2011

O'Regan's Mercedes-Benz Dealership Halifax, Nova Scotia

American auto sales totalled 1,053,405 in June 2011, up 7% from June 2010 levels. The U.S. automobile market has grown by 13% this year and now stands at 6.3 million sales through six months of 2011. The only brands to post year-over-year declines in the first half of 2011 are Acura, Chrysler, Lexus, Lincoln, smart and Toyota.

Ford led the way as a brand in June, but General Motors out-sold Ford Motor Company by nearly 22,000 sales. Toyota and Honda are clearly still feeling the brunt of diminished supply. Both were down around 20% in June. Along with Toyota and Honda, Subaru joined Lexus, Acura, and Infiniti – luxury divisions from across the Pacific – as Japanese brands to post year-over-year declines last month. 

Lexus fell harder than any brand, down 37.8% in June. Mitsubishi’s improvement was the greatest, nearly doubling sales from its 4198-unit performance in the same period of last year. Jeep, a brand which doesn’t sell a single passenger car, staved off frightening fuel prices to post a 74.2% increase. Jeep was America’s ninth-most-popular brand in June 2011. Mercedes-Benz was the best-selling luxury brand in America in June with 22,563 sales, up 18.8%. Without the Sprinter, Mercedes-Benz sales totalled 20,652, fewer than BMW’s output.

Top 20 Best-Selling Cars In America – June 2011

  1. Hey Tim, you may want to check you percentages. For instance: Hyundai for May was 59,214 and June 59,209. A decline of 5 cars, but the graph shows a +15.6%. Same with Kia, May was 48,212 and June 45,044, a decline of 2,968, but the graph shows a +41.2%. Looks like something went wrong in the calculations.

  2. @anyonymous: % gains or losses for new vehicles are always (unless otherwise noted) calculated based on year-over-year differences. So June 2011 for Hyundai (59,209) is compared against June 2010's 51,205. That's a 15.6% jump. Year-to-date figures in this post's case are based on the first six months of 2011 vs. the first six months of 2010. Hyundai, for example, was up from 255,782 in the first six months of 2010 to 322,797 in the first six months of 2011, a 26.2% increase.

  3. ahh…I learn something new every day. This is clearly the best detailed reporting of car sales stats. Great Job!
