Lol! Yet Fiat and Alfa are still, by far, the weak sales links on the FCA chain.

If only Alfa Romeo had the profit margins of Maserati, Sergio would not look so bad in terms of sacrificing Chrysler to the Italian sales boat anchors.

WOW Toyota sold 41000+ Rav4s. Outsold all competition this past month. Not the best or newest. Was there some kind of special promotion?

 Bad month unless you are Toyota corp.  Alfa cracked 1,000 which is good but that might flatline around 2,000 a month.  Will be interesting to see what happens there.

The part of this list alphabetically from Buick to Ford told a severe beating.  Not surprised really.

No body is taking a beating.  Just because the number of cars sold ard down means nothing.  Its all about profit.  You can be down 50% but profits could be up 20%.   Don't rely on cars sold to judge the car industry completely.  GM for one example is down 15 points but in reality those were cars so to rental companies mostly, with little to no profit last year.

As someone who despises Ford, I really don't mind seeing them down 7.5% though....and Audi up 2.5%!  Wonderful....

Plus, Hyundai is really hurting...

Love web page time back machine, July has the same deals as august, so you have zero percent financing, or $200 a month lease or $3,000 dollars cash deals.

rav4-Deals.jpg

Looking at local dealerships in washington state here, they must also have some additional dealer incentives as locally they are offering Finance or Lease with additional $3K off, so I figure they must have extra room to really move the Rav 4.

Is there a refresh coming that I am not aware of?

market share is important though, too.  Over time if your market share erodes, you can end up in a position where you no longer are a big enough player in the market.

Go look at overall sedan sales versus CUV and truck sales and try again to tell us that they aren't taking a beating. Retail overall is down which does not include rental sales. This is from a few months ago.

Or if your just really focused like Subaru a lot of incremental gains add up.

Don't care for Audi at all. Just overdressed VWs that are just too vanilla for me. Just my opinion though  

 

And yes, a few sedans are selling but the key word there is "few".

Given the probable sales slump (everywhere excluding Toyota), I wonder what vehicles are selling and where the profits are.  If the sales are higher-profit trucks/SUVs and crossovers, then maybe it is not so bad.  If sales are down and the marque is all cars all the time, that sounds like real trouble for that car brand.

Trucks and Suvs are selling.  I am mostly concerned about GM right now.

GM doesn't have enough crossovers yet.  We might need to see Chevy for example go from Equinox, Trax, Traverse to 4, 5, 6 different crossovers.

Honestly too, another reason sales are down.  Car prices are WTFH!!!!  We've hit the threshold of what consumers are willing to spend or can spend.

The old bread and butter sedans were mid size or large and reasonably priced.  Manuf's only price the Escapes of the world affordably.  More crossovers that are Edge sized need to come down in price to fill that everyman's car role.  Just because its a crossover doesn't mean it automatically has to go for 50g.

I don't mind the new market taking a bit of a dive.  It should send a message to the manuf's that overproduction has real consequences, and also it reminds them that price is an issue.

I would be happier if the developed the crossovers they had better. Trax and Encore are a nice start, but they need to bring their A game with what they have.

I almost would rather them simplify the lineup and work harder at making what they have A game contenders.

      "The Hyundai Tucson had another record breaking month. Its combination of bold design and advanced technology is resonating with customers looking for a versatile CUV," said Sam Brnovich, executive director, National Sales, Hyundai Motor America. "The 2018 Sonata is gaining momentum as well and just earned the 2017 TOP SAFETY PICK+ designation from the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety, it highest accolade."
      In the Houston area, Hyundai is focused on helping its customers and dealers recover from the devastation of Hurricane Harvey. Both Hyundai and Genesis have launched disaster relief programs that provide an offer to anyone with a damaged vehicle. This incentive is effective in all states as some impacted people may have been in Houston on business or vacation. Hyundai Capital America (captive finance for Hyundai and Genesis) is also offering payment relief solutions, including payment extensions, redirection of billing statements and arranging for phone or on-line payments free of charge. In addition, Hyundai's non-profit organization, Hyundai Hope On Wheels, is making donations to five Texas-area children's hospitals to assist with patient needs, resulting from the super storm.
