    Year-to-Date Mid-Sized Sedan Sales (Non-Luxury)

    After years of sliding sales, the mid-sized sedan segment is actually up through the first nine months of this year, mainly due to the loss of sales in 2020 because of COVID-19.  Gas prices rising is likely contributing to this as well, people look a little harder at SUV purchases when gas prices are on the rise.  Prius sales, for instance, are up 56% this year over last.

    There is enough info now for me to call it for the Camry being the #1 selling car of 2021, the 20th straight year. Even with the chip shortages Toyota is suffering, there is no way Accord can catch up.  After those two vehicles, the numbers really drop off.  The Hyundai Sonata has a chance to unseat perennial #3 Nissan Altima in the next three months.
