Another 6% were vans: people carriers and commercial units.
The remaining vehicles were cars, SUVs, and crossovers. And it’s among those vehicles that the market is rapidly evolving in 2016’s first half.
One year ago, SUVs and crossovers accounted for 35.5% of the new vehicles sold in the United States. But in the equivalent period of 2016, the market share accumulated by SUVs and crossovers jumped to 37.8%, strengthened not only by new models such as the Honda HR-V and Jeep Renegade – which weren’t on sale throughout 2016’s first-half – but also by above-average gains from the top-selling Toyota RAV4 and challengers like the Nissan Rogue and the whole Jeep brand.
Meanwhile, the top-selling car is also a Toyota. But that car, the Toyota Camry, has lost 16,056 sales during the same period in which its Toyota RAV4 sibling added 22,325 sales to Toyota’s ledger. (19,227 of those additional RAV4 sales come from the RAV4 Hybrid.)
U.S. sales of passenger cars are down 8% in a market which is set to break 2015’s calendar year auto sales record. Not all car nameplates are all crumbling, but the category is down by 305,000 sales.
Three new vehicles, all cars, were added to GCBC’s rankings in June. The Fiat 124 Spider, a close relative of the Mazda MX-5 Miata, and all-new second-generation Acura NSX combined for three sales. Volvo also reported its first eight sales of the new S90 sedan.
The table below is completely sortable, so when you click the column header to sort by vehicle names to showcase all Toyotas together, for example, you’ll also see the Toyota brand’s total.
Auto brands are shown in bold for differentiation between makes and models. Automakers are in bold and italicized. At any time, click the Rank column to return to the original format. If you’re on a mobile device, you may need to choose the full version of the site (at the bottom of the page) in order to use the sortable function.
Reminder: these are 2016 year-to-date rankings, but you can sort vehicles by June volume by clicking the June 2016 column header, or you can rank vehicles by improvements or declines using the % columns. Or, most importantly, you can list automakers together by selecting the Vehicle column header.
As always, you can find historical monthly and yearly sales figures for any of these vehicles by selecting a make and model at GCBC’s Sales Stats page.
