    August National Sales Results

    August National Sales Results


    It was looking like the auto industry was going to rebound and beat August of 2016's sales numbers. Unfortunately, Hurricane Harvey had other plans, and sales were virtually non-existent on the final weekend of August in South Texas. The loss of sales in the fourth-largest car market in America could not be overcome.


    Here are the winners and losers, comparing August 2017 to August 2016:


    WINNERS

    • Alfa Romeo was up 2981% (with only 1140 sales)
    • Genesis was up 20.4%
    • Maserati was up 15.1%
    • GMC was up 12.4%
    • Chevrolet was up 11.4%
    • Mitsubishi was up 11.3%
    • Volkswagen was up 9%
    • Toyota was up 8%
    • Infiniti was up 5.2%
    • Land Rover was up 5%
    • Subaru was up 4.6%
    • Volvo was up 4.1%
    • Audi was up 2.8%
    • Kia was up 2%

    LOSERS

    • Lexus was off 0.4%
    • Mazda was down 1%
    • Honda was down 1.8%
    • Ford was also down 1.8%
    • Ram was off 2%
    • Dodge was also down 2%
    • Lincoln was off 5.8%
    • Jaguar was down 6%
    • BMW was off 7.7%
    • Porsche was down 9.1%
    • Mini dropped by 10.5%
    • Mercedes was down 10.7%
    • Nissan was off 14.8%
    • Jeep was down 15%
    • Buick dropped by 22.5%
    • Fiat was down 23%
    • Hyundai was down 25.5%
    • Chrysler plummeted by 33%
    • Smart fell 35.1% with 229 sales
    • Bentley was off 46.6%

    In total sales, General Motors led the pack with 275,000 sales, followed by Toyota at 227,000, and Ford came in third at 209,000. That performance also put General Motors in the lead for year-to-date sales through the first 8 months of 2017.


    The overall auto industry was down less than 2% from August 2016 sales, in spite of the problems in the Houston area.

    A privilege is just a right that has been taken away by government.

    Political correctness is cowardice wrapped in a lie.

    Acura is neither a winner nor a loser thesedays?
    "It's 106 miles to Chicago, we've got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses." They're not gonna catch us. We're on a Mission from God. Hit it.
