U.S. Auto Sales Chevrolet-Silverado HD 2015

U.S. Auto Sales crushed expectations in September on the wings of great economic environment and with full year projected above 16.4 million vehicles. Inside, all statistics on brands, groups and models.

In September 2014 according to data released by GoodCarBadCar, the total new Light Passengers Vehicles sold have been 1.245.786, up 9.5% from the correspondent month last year and posting the 8th year-on-year increase in a string.

Year-to-date September sales have been 12.432.000, up 5.6% from year ago with full year volume projection stable at 16.4 million, best performance since 2007.

In addition exceptional recent data on US economy with booming GDP and lowest unemployment level since 2008 encourage a 2015 vehicle market projection not far from the best ever level.

September was not memorable for the market leader, Ford, which was one of the few with a negative year-on-year balance, selling 172.261 units, down 3.2% from the correspondent month last year and with market share well below the 15% target.

Chevrolet pushed hard on rebates to reduce the dealer stock in excess and gained over 20% of sales at 153.873, outpacing Toyota, third with 141.273 units (+3.3%)

Aside from Maserati’s massive leap in September the month’s fastest-growing brand was Jeep (7th with 17.767 sales, + 47.4%), followed by Mitsubishi (25th with 5.558, +38.9%) and Subaru (9th with 41.517 units, +30.7%).

Mini, Scion, Volkswagen (down 19% to fewer than 26.000 sales), Infiniti and Jaguar stood out for their declines.

In the Group Performance Ranking, GM led with 17.9% of share, ahead of Ford at 14.4% and F.C.A. at 13.8% outpacing Toyota.

As far as the best-selling models, low sales on F-Series explain the Ford difficulties while Chevrolet Silverado and Ram picked up a strong volume increase.

Fastest growing models list include Toyota Rav4 (7th with 22.724 units, +42.7%), Chevrolet Cruze (14th with 18.415 units, +44.7%), Nissan Rogue (16th with 17.229 units, +51.8%) and BMW Series 3 (27th with 12.814, +50.5%).
