After going through the September sales data, let’s try and extract some longer-term trends by looking into the year-to-date charts. In spite of a 4% year-on-year drop in September, the US market is still up by a very healthy 8% on 2012 at 11.8 million registrations. Pick-up trucks are still by far the best-performing vehicles atop the US ranking so far in 2013: the Dodge Ram is up 23% and 3 spots year-on-year to #5 while the Ford F-Series (#1), Chevrolet Silverado (#2) and GMC Sierra (#20) are all up 21%. Only the Hyundai Elantra does better, up 28% to #13. Great performers in the Top 20 also include the Toyota RAV4 up 19% to #16 and Ford Explorer up 20% to #19.

The last model to break the 100,000 units barrier so far, the Honda Pilot is up a cool 18% on 2012 to #30, the Subaru Forester is up 49% and 20 spots to #42, Nissan Pathfinder up 195% and 59 ranks to #54, Dodge Dart up 611% to #57, Mazda CX-5 up 107% to #61 and Toyota Avalon 148% to #69. Given the Subaru XV Crosstrek, Ford C-Max and Cadillac ATS all launched in September 2012, there is now no all-new model inside the 2013 Top 100, with the Buick Encore the best-performing newcomer at #123 and 22,930 sales, followed by the Kia Cadenza at #197 and Infinifi Q50 at #205 after only two months.

Nissan Leaf USA September 2013Thanks to a 20% price drop, Nissan Leaf sales are up 208% so far in 2013.

Other interesting developments (because not related to recent model launches) include the Nissan Leaf up 208% to #140 vs. +3% and #138 for the Chevrolet Volt, the Porsche Cayenne up 35% to #154, Honda Ridgeline up 33% to #156, Audi Q7 up 47% to #165, Lexus LS up 54% to #183, Mercedes SL Class up 71% to #199, Porsche Boxster up 135% to #215 and Mercedes G Class up 150% to #236

    So, no data on Tesla Model S? We know from their quarterly statements that they sold 10050 cars in North America through June 2013. Take out some for Canada, and add some estimate for July, August and September, and it’s safe to assume they sold at least 12000 in the US.
    That puts them higher than the Audi A7, BMW 7 series and S class Mercedes. Not bad.

    No way, VW Golf is in big trouble in the two big world markets. USA: -24%. China: -20%
    And in wrong direction in Europe: -6%.
