September National Sales Results

Top-Selling Pickups Auto Industry Sales National Auto Sales

You could hear the champagne bottles popping all around the auto industry after the September sales results were reported Tuesday.  It was, in fact, the first time any month in 2017 exceeded sales versus the same month in 2016.

Yes, Hurricane Harvey was a help, and so was the fact that this September had five Saturdays, but for an industry looking for good news, this month provided it for most auto manufacturers.

Here are the winners and losers this month:

  • BMW was up .07%
  • Alfa Romeo was up over 2900% to 1268 units.
  • Fiat Chrysler was down 9.7%.
  • Ford was up 9.3%.
  • GM was up 11.9%.
  • Honda was up 6.8%.
  • Hyundai/Kia was up 6.6%.
  • Jag/Land Rover was up 16.9%
  • Mazda was up 3.4%. 
  • Mercedes-Benz was down 2.2%
  • Mitsubishi was up 17.2%.
  • Nissan was up 9.5%.
  • Subaru was essentially flat.
  • Lexus was up 1.5%.
  • Toyota was up a whopping 17.4%.
  • Volvo was up 40.7%.
  • VW brands were up 21.9%.

The industry sold just over 1,525,000 vehicles, which is a 6.3% increase from September 2016.  Houston and Florida helped for sure, but so did exceptional incentives that got even better for October.
