Fantastic year for new vehicle sales in the USA, up a formidable 14% on 2011 to reach 14,491,873 registrations, the best year in the country since 2007. The Ford F-Series enjoys its 31st consecutive year as the most popular vehicle in the USA (no interruption since 1982!) with 645,316 sales, up 10% on 2011 and here too its best year since 2007. The Chevrolet Silverado was stuck in third position for most of the year but an incentive-fuelled December brought it back to #2 in the Full Year like in 2011 at 418,312 units. The Toyota Camry remains the best-selling Passenger Car in the country for the 11th year in a row (since 2002) and has now been #1 for 15 of the last 16 years thanks to sales up 31% to 404,886.

Honda Accord

Honda has a bumper year in 2012, placing two models in the year-end Top 5 for the first time ever in the USA! The Honda Accord is up 41% and 5 spots to #4 at 331,872 units while the Honda Civic is up 44% and 7 ranks to #5 with 317,909 sales, its highest ever year-end ranking in the country. And then there is the Honda CR-V up 29% and 4 spots to #9 at 281,652 units. Other great performers in this year's Top 30 include the Ford Focus up 40% to #11, Toyota RAV4 up 30% to #19, Toyota Prius up 25% to #21 and Kia Optima up an impressive 80% to #25.

Chrysler 300

Further down, the Chrysler 200 is up 44% to #32, VW Passat a huge 412% to #37, Dodge Avenger up 51% to #48, Subaru Impreza up 99% to #54, Chevrolet Sonic up 415% to #56, Chrysler 300 up 95% to #64 and Fiat 500 up 121% to #89. The best performing and only all-new model in the US Top 100 this year is the Mazda CX-5 landing directly at #90 with 43,319 sales with the Buick Verano nearly all-new at #95. It is followed by the Toyota Prius C at #107, Dodge Dart at #127 and Infiniti JX35 at #138

    It surprises me to see the lack of higher end, more luxury cars at the top of the list. As they become more common place and people become more willing to take on the necessary debt to own one I expect to see them start breaching the top 10/15. Perhaps next year.
