Between the original on-sale data in 2003 and the end of January 2016, Toyota Motor Corp. sold 1.1 million Scions.
U.S. auto sales shot up nearly 6% to a record high of more than 17.4 million units in calendar year 2015. This leap forward occurred despite a 2% drop in sales of passenger cars and an 8% decline in minivan volume.
It took years. Years. But finally, Volvo introduced a second-generation XC90. Ramp-up, however, was slow. U.S. XC90 sales volume was very low in the first-half of 2015. Even the greater pace of nearly 1,200 XC90 sales achieved in July and September was lower than what the old XC90 achieved as recently as December 2010…
Americans have purchased and leased 4% more wagons in the first eight months of 2015 than during the same period one year ago, an increase of more than 5,000 sales, year-over-year.
2015 is set to be the seventh consecutive year in which the Ford Fiesta is the best-selling new vehicle in the United Kingdom.
America’s auto industry posted marginal losses in the month of August, while the daily sales rate and seasonally adjusted annualized rate soared. In August 2014, U.S. auto sales figures actually included sales from September’s high-volume Labour Day weekend.
Last month, Americans drove away from Subaru dealerships in 3,716 new WRXs and STIs, a record for the Impreza-based hot-
hatch duo. Year-over-year volume jumped 85% in July 2015, an increase of 1,711 units for the Subaru brand, which shot up 11% to 50,517 total sales, the first time since last August that Subaru Of…
Please return your seats to the upright position. The Earth continues to spin peacefully on its axis. Donald Trump is a candidate for the Republican nomination for POTUS, thank heavens. Ian Callum still pens Jaguars.
The Ford Fiesta is well on its way to finishing 2015 as the United Kingdom’s best-selling car. Through just six months, the Fiesta already leads the second-ranked Vauxhall Corsa by 21,865 units.
At Jalopnik, the Miata is always the answer. In my own books, the Volkswagen Golf GTI is often the answer. I’m inclined to believe that a modern, full-size, crew cab pickup truck, or perhaps a Chevrolet Suburban, would also disturbingly appropriate for many families.
It’s not at all surprising to see the Ford Mustang achieving impressive sales figures in its American home market. Through the first five months of 2015, Ford has sold 56,571 Mustangs in the U.S., a 55% year-over-year increase. That 20,000-unit improvement compared with the first five months of 2014 has stopped…
Well documented already this month were the U.S. sales results from the Honda HR-V’s first (abbreviated) month on the market. 6381 HR-Vs were sold in America in May, 674 more than the Chevrolet Trax managed in its best month yet, nearly 2000 sales more than the Jeep Renegade achieved in its second full month in…
Volkswagen Of America last sold a Passat wagon in 2011. The final 56 copies were sold that year. There was never any intention to introduce a wagon version of the current, Americanized Passat in North America. Across the pond, their different Passat can still be purchased in wagon form.
GM Canada reported a single Cadillac ELR sale in April 2015, the worst month for the ELR since its initial month of offering, February 2014.

The Volkswagen brand last week reported best-ever March sales, including a 73% year-over-year improvement. That drove their market share up to 4.3% from 2.6% in March 2013.
GCBC's deep connections to Prince Edward Island cause us to pay particular attention to a video on one of the island's few four-lane roads, a bypass outside the capital of Charlottetown, in which an exceedingly rare Porsche Cayman goes completely mad. It's like watching a dog eat a spicy onion after being told he must…
You think Volvo is facing challenging times in the United States in the lead-up to the new XC90's launch?
