After A Brief Hiatus, Kia Says The Sedona Is Back.
The Sales Figures Believe Otherwise.
Down 5% through ten months, the tenth month of 2013 produced a 5% year-over-year increase in total U.S. minivan sales. Powered forward in large part by the Chrysler Group – which also sold 1418 commercial vans in October – minivan volume grew by 1955 units.
Year-to-date, 21,894 fewer minivans have been sold than were sold in the first ten months of 2012.
The Dodge Grand Caravan and its twin, the Chrysler Town & Country, were the first and second-ranked minivans in America in October.
The Grand Caravan ranks second year-to-date, ahead of the Toyota Sienna but behind the Honda Odyssey. The Town & Country ranks fourth, just 1654 sales back of the Sienna.

The Chrysler Group’s market share stands at 45.9% through ten months, right on par with 2012’s results at this point. In October, however, the Chrysler twins owned 52.8% of the minivan segment, up from 47.2% a year ago.
Only 6.9% of 2013’s minivan customers have opted for something other than the four top sellers.
