It is almost impossible to know how the auto industry actually did for July 2020 given that the majority of carmakers no longer report sales on a monthly basis. To make it even harder to gauge, some car companies, like Toyota, are very short on inventory.

However, enough automakers still report that I can make an educated guess that the auto industry was down between 15-20% from July 2019, which is better than expected earlier in the month of July given the Covid hangover and the lack of the most popular trucks and SUVs.

Here are the automakers who did report and how they fared versus July of 2019, which by the way, was a very strong month for sales:

1. Toyota 146,044 Down 20.7%
2. Honda 112,370 Down 12.6%
3. Kia 52,479 Down 1.7%
4. Hyundai 57,677 Up 0.6%
5. Subaru 51,458 Down 19.7%
6. Mazda 24,085 Up 3.4%
7. Lexus 23,440 Down 6.3%
8. Acura 13,076 Up 2.5%
9. Volvo 9,697 Up 10.3%
10. Up 10.3 1,257 Down 20.7%
