  3. Porsche Reports April U.S. Retail Sales First four months up 2.7 percent ahead of new Macan, 911, electric TaycanAtlanta, Georgia. Porsche Cars North America, Inc. (PCNA), importer and distributor of the Porsche 911, 718 Boxster and Cayman, Panamera, Cayenne, and Macan model lines, today announced April retail sales of 5,018 vehicles. The total was an increase of 5.0 percent from March but down 9.9 percent from a record April 2018. The primary reason for the year-over-year decline was the transition to the new Macan, the best-selling Porsche model that is due in U.S. dealerships this month. U.S. retail sales in the first four months were 2.7 percent ahead of the same period in 2018, which itself was the seventh record retail year in a row for PCNA. “We are already feeling the excitement for the refreshed Macan and later this year for the eighth generation of the iconic Porsche 911,” said Klaus Zellmer, President and CEO of PCNA. “In September we will unveil the first all-electric Porsche, the Taycan, so all in all we have a thrilling year to look forward to along with our 191 U.S. dealer partners.” April results were driven by strong demand for the new Cayenne, with a notable 86.1 percent increase compared to April 2018. The mid-engine 718 Boxster and 718 Cayman together were up 1.3 percent from a year ago. Porsche Approved Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) sales in the U.S. totaled 1,975 vehicles in April, up 9.4 percent year-over-year.

Despite challenging market conditions and slowing industry sales, we are cautiously optimistic as we enter May and typically strong Memorial Day holiday weekend sales.” April Product and Corporate Activities Hyundai Venue Global Introduction: Hyundai’s New York International Auto Show included the successful world debut of the all-new entry SUV Venue. Venue is packed with a host of premium driver safety and convenience technologies and is the perfect fit for those seeking a seamless combination of style and versatility, while slotting in as the most affordable Hyundai SUV in the lineup. Venue will arrive in U.S. showrooms in the fourth quarter of this year. 2020 Sonata North American Introduction: The dramatically redesigned 2020 Sonata made its North American debut at the New York International Auto Show and showed off its Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy, an all-new powertrain and segment-first technology, like the Hyundai Digital Key. Production of the 2020 Sonata starts in September at Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama and retail sales begin in October. Santa Fe Earns Wards Best Interior Distinction: The 2019 Santa Fe was named to the Wards 10 Best Interiors list and caught the publication’s attention for “its high-quality materials, attention to detail and overall value.” Nexo Fuel Cell Earth Day: To celebrate Earth Day, Hyundai announced that its NEXO fuel cell SUV and the Tucson fuel cell SUV, together have accumulated more than 5 million miles on U.S. roads, all while emitting only clean water vapor.

  13. April's auto sales are one most automakers would like to pretend never happen due to big declines. But if there is a silver lining to April sales, it has to go to small sports cars. Automotive News ran the numbers and found that sales of small sports cars rose 3.4 percent so far this year. Contrast this with 12 percent drop in overall demand for cars. The big winner in this group was the Mazda MX-5 Miata with sales up 35 percent so far this year. Sales in April declined slightly from March (1,319 vs. 1,345 units), but rose sharply when compared to January (929) and February (1,108). Other models saw noticeable increases: Fiat 124 Spider saw its sales rise from 240 in January to 465 in April BMW's Z4 rose 42 percent so far this year (though it should be noted this model went out of production last August) Toyota 86 saw a small rise in overall sales Jaguar F-Type posted its best monthly sales of 406 units Source: Automotive News (Subscription Required) View full article
