Chrysler’s Chrysler brand attracted 32% of its clientele with the 300; Dodge got 24% from the Charger. 12% of Ford’s July car buyers drove away in a Taurus – 12% of Taurus buyers were police departments.
Only 7% of Hyundai car buyers opted for an Azera or Genesis, sales figures for which take the Genesis Coupe into account. (That’s Hyundai’s decision.) Less than 5% of Kia’s car buyers chose a Cadenza, less than 7% of Nissan’s car buyers chose a Maxima, and precisely 6% of Toyota’s car sales occurred because of the Avalon.
Kia did sell 1.75 Cadenzas for every Hyundai Azera sold. Of course, Hyundai dealers were also able to offer customers spending $35,000 a rear-wheel-drive Genesis sedan. Toyota USA sold 66 times more Avalons than Toyota Canada did last month. Impala volume was 69 times stronger in America than in Canada.
