US Tesla Sales Up 22% In 3rd Quarter, US Auto Sales Down 9%

As everyone knows, the automobile industry has been slammed in 2020, including in the United States. Below is a look at third quarter auto sales across the country as well as auto sales in the first three quarters of the year

Toyota, Where Are Thy US Sales?

Toyota [NYSE:TM] was reporting monthly sales last year (including sales of luxury brand Lexus), but then didn’t publish a sales report until April, covering the first quarter of the year. “Okay, fine, it is switching to quarterly reporting, too,” I thought

Tesla Model 3 = 7th Best Selling Car in USA & 19th Best Selling Vehicle

The Tesla Model 3 isn’t done with the headlines, despite the Model Y’s review-grabbing arrival and the coronavirus pandemic we’re dealing with at the moment. Tesla has climbed the rankings of the top selling cars in the USA and placed the Model 3 on the 7th rung*. That’s up from 9th in 2019 as a whole and up from 13th in the first quarter of 2019. Though, it is the same ranking as the Model 3 obtained in the 4th quarter of

Tesla Model 3 Dominates US Premium-Class Small & Midsize Car Market — 23% of 2019 Sales

The Tesla Model 3 continued to hog the throne on top of the US premium-class car market at the end of 2019. For the full year, the Model 3 accounted for 23% of small and midsize luxury car sales. In other words, nearly 1 out of every 4 small or midsize luxury cars sold in 2019 was a Tesla Model

US Gas Vehicle Sales Up Big In November, Still Down In 2019

Tracking monthly US auto sales by company or brand is one of the oddest-feeling things I’ve done in my decade or so covering cleantech. Perhaps that’s because the focus is on tracking non-clean tech. The fact is, though, it shocks me every month to see how many people still buy gasoline cars. Gasoline cars are far worse than electric cars currently on the market for the same cost (or even less). Nonetheless, there are so many people buying clunky, noisy, slow, high-maintenance, low-tech, high-depreciation gasoline vehicles every single day. Objectively, it doesn’t make sense

Nissan, Toyota, Infiniti, & MINI USA Sales Down In October & 2019; Hyundai, Kia, Honda, BMW, Genesis, & Volvo Sales Up

Tracking monthly US auto sales has been a fascinating endeavor this past year. Unfortunately, we don’t get data from some brands — Tesla, all Ford Motor Company brands, GM brands, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles brands, Jaguar Land Rover no longer report monthly sales. However, there are 17 brands that do report monthly US sales, so let’s have a look at them

Honda Accord & Toyota Camry Buyers — What The Heck Are You Doing?

Honda and Toyota have been smart, logical choices for American car buyers for decades. Once upon a time, they were the new kids on the block and they had to prove themselves with strong “performance for the money” or “value for the money” propositions. They did so, repeatedly, and they grew their market shares as a result

Foreign Automakers Increase Sales By 7,855 In July In USA, US Automakers Don’t Report Sales

I may need to cancel my fun, popular, and extremely time consuming monthly reports for US auto sales. One by one, US automakers have stopped publishing monthly sales data. At this point, there are almost as many brands not reporting sales as there are reporting them

Tesla Model 3 = 3% of US Car Sales in 1st Half of 2019

In the comments of my article about the Tesla Model 3 accounting for 67% of US electric vehicle sales in the second quarter, someone asked about the electric vehicle share of the overall market. I didn’t find second quarter (Q2) sales data anywhere, but I did quickly identify sales data for the first half of the year
