Keep in mind that in some models, the TDi trim was 30% of sales.  Jetta, Golf, and Passat were three of the top sellers that sold about that rate in the past and now 30% of that volume is essentially gone.  Jetta and Passat are the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd best sellers in the VW lineup.... so that is a huge chunk of their biggest sellers.

Just drove by VW of University in Seattle and they have a ton of auto's on their lots 200+, so checked their web site and they list only 136 available for sale. Quick call to the dealership and the sales person said that they had almost 100 diesels that are just sitting till they can be repaired and unable to be sold.

 

Based on that, I would say that VW is going to be hurting a long time as product sits, trust is shattered and people are not buying from them. Bet December gets ugly.

 

So locally VW is offering 0 down, 0 first and second month payments. $1500 owner loyalty and .9% for 72 months. You can also get $1000 if you trade in a competitor car. Free oil changes for life and free loaner auto on service. Pretty amazing as they are also showing pricing reductions of 3-5K depending on model. So they are spending some cash to try and keep sales going.

VW with all those diesels they can't sell is going to keep them down a while.  Plus you probably had people buy it because it was diesel and not VW, so those buyers may just look elsewhere all together.  

 

This month shows how people want crossovers.  That is bad news for brands like Dodge and Chrysler.  You don't really need 2 sedan brands when a brand like Jeep is up 20%.  Land Rover and Volvo up a ton because of new crossovers in their lineup.

It's a great time to buy a GTI if that's your kinda ride. Wonder if the incentives apply across the board?

At least here in the Seattle market the incentives do apply to all the products including the GTI, the only change on the GTI is that the auto loan is a 1.9% interest for 60 months versus .9% for 72 months on everything else. 

 

Kinda weird, not sure why this one is different but it clearly is stated on the web pages for the VW dealers here.

A correction is needed.

 

Lincoln - Down 2.4% (7,918 Vehicles Sold This Month, 303,221 Vehicles Sold So Far This Year)

 

That should be more like around 90,000 sold this year (90,367 to be exact) or else Lincoln suffered the largest month over sales drop in the history of sales drops. :scared:

I just noticed the GMC Sierra was down over 26%

 

I wonder why the huge drop? 

 

Typically when you see one of these large one-off 1 months drops is that the same month in the prior year had some unusually high sales activity.

In this case, the Sierra seems to be returning to norm after some large sale going on in November 2014  (Think both GM and RAM pulled out all the stops on incentives at the end of the year last year to kick the F-150 while it was first being released)

 

Nov 2012 - 11,726

Nov 2013 -  14,362

Nov 2014 - 22,554

Nov 2015 - 16,527

 

and sales are up over 4% for the year on Sierra.

 

The long term growth trend is still positive.

Thanks for the detective work!  :thumbsup:

 

Your " incentive " explanation makes sense.

Oops. It has been fixed.

 

Also, I updated the article with Mercedes-Benz's numbers.

Lincoln sold 90,367 vehicles....so far, not for the year.

Lincoln is also at around +9% for the year...so far.

Thanks

What happened to Buick.

Wow.

Big hit.

No need to be pedantic. We all knew that he meant "so far this year". We will report full year percentages in January.

Buick's sedans are all at the end of their cycles and are being replaced.

      Automakers for the most part were hurting in sales during the second quarter. The COVID-19 pandemic and the economy coming to a screeching halt for a brief time caused new car sales to drop by a third according to Automotive News. But there is a slim silver lining to this, full-size pickups have moved into being the best-selling segment of vehicles.
      According to data from Automotive News, one out of four vehicles sold between April and June was a pickup truck. This helped put them ahead of compact crossovers, which have held the top spot for some time. The reason is that trucks didn't take as big of a hit due to 0 percent financing offers from automakers to help bring in buyers. A large number of dealers said they sold the majority of trucks sitting on their lots.
      Mark LaNeve, Ford's vice president of U.S. marketing, sales and service provides another reason why trucks didn't fall off a cliff. Speaking to AN, he said that people need trucks for work and "affluent consumers who often buy such vehicles have been less affected by the pandemic."
      Trucks still took quite the hit in the quarter,

      We clearly have European, Asian and Americas auto fans. I feel this is a good place to discuss the sales of segments, models, etc. here. I have pulled the latest Statista data that can be gotten for free to show here and discuss.
      As such, there is clearly a leadership perceived image that BMW and Mercedes-Benz have carried the last few years. Yet with that, you look at over all sales and both these companies have flipped and flopped leadership of the year in specific luxury segments but lack over all auto sales in the US.
      Based on the reports that @Drew Dowdell posted in January 2020 on 2019 auto sales:
      Ford - 2,422,698 GM - 2,887,046 FCA - 2,203,663 Tesla - 367,500 Audi - 224,111 BMW - 360,918 Genesis - 21,233 Honda - 1,608,170 Hyundai - 688,771 Infiniti - 117,708 Jaguar Land Rover - 125,787 Kia - 615,338 Mazda - 278,552 Mercedes-Benz - 357,729 Mitsubishi - 121,046 Nissan - 1,227,973 Porsche - 61,568 Subaru - 700,117 Toyota - 2,383,349 Volkswagen - 363,322 Volvo - 108,234 2019 Auto Sales
