February 2015 YTD U.S. Passenger Car Sales Rankings – Top 152 Best-Selling Cars In America – Every Car Ranked

2014 Chevrolet Impala black

America’s new vehicle industry didn’t grow quite as rapidly in February 2015 as expected, and the growth that did occur wasn’t fuelled by passenger cars. 

Car volume slid slightly compared with February 2014. Think back to February 2014, and you’ll remember that car volume declined 6% compared with February 2013.

However, at the top of the heap, the best-selling cars so far this year produced improved February volume. Toyota Camry sales shot up 14%, a gain of nearly 4000 units, year-over-year. Its smaller sibling, the Toyota Corolla, was up 10%.

Many big sellers did post decreased February sales, however: Altima, Accord, Fusion, Civic, Cruze, Focus, Malibu, Jetta, Impala, Soul.

* Italicized, asterisked, unranked lines are nothing more than available breakdowns, already included in the model’s total, not in addition to the model’s total.
² Total Prius Family sales: down 6.6% to 12,018 in February; down 3.2% to 24,262 YTD.
³ BMW has chosen to include sales of the 4-Series within figures for the 3-Series, presumably for year-over-year consistency’s sake, while also combining the 1-Series and 2-Series. Hyundai does the same with the Genesis and Genesis Coupe.
Sales data for brands such as Aston Martin, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Lotus, Rolls-Royce etc. are unfortunately not broken down by model. estimates say sales for those brands in the first two months of 2015 were 206, 354, 126, 30, and 154, respectively. Tesla, unfortunately, doesn’t release model-specific monthly U.S. sales data, but Automotive News now issues estimates for the brand, and those estimates say Tesla sold 2000 cars in February; 4250 YTD.  HybridCars.com, however, has typically estimated much lower Model S sales: 1400 in February; 2900 YTD.
