Excluding those two vans, the Grand Caravan and Town & Country, shows that sales of competing minivans were up 7.3% in April; 12.3% year-to-date.
The Toyota Sienna’s modest April growth helped out – it’s the best-selling minivan in the country this year. But Kia’s rapid rise continues unabated as the Sedona – not the most popular van by any means, but increasingly popular – jumped 443% last month.
The FCA/Chrysler twins owned 49.3% of the U.S. minivan market during the first one-third of 2014. That figure is down to 32.2% this year; to 29.2% in April, specifically.
