After falling 8% in calendar year 2014 – and 17% in January 2014 – sales of the Impala-class cars tumbled 9% in January 2015. In other words, sales of these cars in January 2015 were down 24% compared with January 2013 levels.
After declines in the final four months of 2014, the anticipated 2015 Charger may have finally taken hold in the first month of 2015. With 7025 sales, Charger volume was up by 1825 units.
The leader of the pack, Chevrolet’s Impala, was down 23%. That decline played a role in GM’s overall 7% passenger car decrease.

GCBC isn’t here to break down segments, an impossible task for any group, but to display sales data for the sake of comparison. The more ways sales data can be displayed, the better.
