September 2015 Auto Sales: Winners and Losers


Both leaves and temperatures may be falling across large parts of North America but auto sales did the exact opposite last month, increasing by a stellar amount as drivers flocked to showrooms like birds flying south.

September turned out to be a bonanza for the automotive business, with around 1.5 million cars and light trucks leaving dealerships. The industry’s dynamite performance was about 16 percent better than during the same month last year. Can you say growth?

General Motors’ sales were up more than 12 percent and Ford posted a gain of nearly 24. Hyundai, Toyota and Nissan each grew by close to 20 percent. Basically the entire car business did well in September, but the kicker is these brands aren’t even the ones that topped the charts.

Winner: Subaru +27.8 Percent

Subaru’s deliveries grew by just shy of 28 percent, topping 53,000. Year-to-date they’ve sold more than 428,000 vehicles in the U.S. this year, an increase of 14.2 percent compared to the first nine months of 2014. This is the epitome of the phrase “slow and steady wins the race.”

Winner: Infiniti +30.4 Percent

Topping Subaru’s astounding September is Infiniti. Nissan’s luxury division grew its sales by more than 30 percent last month, with deliveries closing in on 11,000. So far this year they’ve sold just shy of 96,000 cars and crossovers.

Winner: Mitsubishi +35.9 Percent

It seems Mitsubishi always posts sales increases and last month was no exception. The triple-diamond brand’s deliveries grew by nearly 36 percent in September. Unfortunately for them this strong performance only resulted in an overall total of just 7,556 vehicles. Still, for all of 2015 their sales are up nearly 26 percent with more than 73,000 deliveries.

Winner: Jeep +39.8 Percent

Just like Mitsubishi, Jeep is a brand that won’t stop growing. Its September sales blew up, jumping skyward by nearly 40 percent. Its deliveries exceeded 77,000. Year-to-date more than 632,000 Jeeps have been sold in ‘Murica, an increase of nearly 23 percent compared to the same time period last year.

Winner: Scion +56.7 Percent

But topping even Jeep’s stellar performance is Scion. This Toyota division has been steadily sliding for months, mayhap even years, but the drop stopped in September. This brand’s sales increased by more than 56 percent last month, exceeding 6,500 units. Almost half of that was a combination of the brand’s two newest products, the iA and iM. For all of 2015 its deliveries are still off by 15 percent compared to the first nine months of last year, but at least the decline appears to have been arrested ...

Did Volkswagen USA Sales Really Increase In September? Sort Of
TTAC

By Timothy Cain on October 2, 2015


Twelve days after early reports revealed that Volkswagen Of America’s TDI Clean Diesels weren’t so clean after all, Volkswagen reported a one-percent U.S. sales increase for the month of September 2015, the month in which the emissions fraud was revealed.

But did Volkswagen’s U.S. volume truly rise?...

...First, consider the length of the month. September 2014 featured 24 selling days and did not include sales from the high-volume Labor Day weekend, which was tallied with August results in 2012, 2013, and 2014. September 2015, on the other hand, featured 25 selling days and did include those Labour Day weekend sales. As a result, the year-over-year comparison — always used because of the seasonality of new vehicle sales — isn’t a perfectly sound tool...

...This is where the daily sales rate, or DSR, comes into play. In September 2014, Volkswagen Of America sold 1,083 new vehicles per selling day. In September 2015, while the total monthly volume Volkswagen reported was higher by 0.56 percent, or a scant 145 units, the DSR fell to 1,046 new vehicles per day, a 3.3-percent decrease...

...For the first three weeks of September, consumers weren’t aware of the fact that cars equipped with the 2.0-liter TDI were spewing up to 40 times the stated emissions. Both during the early portion of the month and the post-TDI fallout, the larger chunk of Volkswagen’s U.S. sales are produced by gas-fired vehicles. In August, for example, only about 7,000 of Volkswagen’s 32,332 sales were of the 2.0-liter TDI variety...

...Whether the dreadful TDI news further sucked the brand downward in the latter stages of September or the declines were already written in stone, we can’t fully know. Nor can we measure the impact on the brand as a whole — certainly not until we receive October’s sales figures...



...certain Volkswagen models certainly took a hit in September. The core element of the Golf lineup – excluding GTI, Golf R, e-Golf, and wagon – plunged 37 percent to only 1,193 September sales. Total Beetle volume tumbled 15 percent to 1,539 units.

Finally, the Jetta sedan, Volkswagen’s best-selling model, slid 14 percent to only 7,746 sales. Typically one of America’s 20 best-selling cars, the Jetta lineup ranked 23rd in September, nearly 1,600 sales behind the 20th-ranked Chevrolet Impala.

September 2015 Fact Sheet: The Numbers You Didn’t Know That You Need To Know
TTAC

By Timothy Cain on October 13, 2015

...
553 Percent: Swedish SUV enthusiasts were waiting for the launch of the second-generation XC90 for years. The new XC90 arrived in the spring and, while still not selling like the BMW X5 or Mercedes-Benz GLE, reached its highest sales level yet in September with a 553-percent jump to 1,182 units. With the XC90, Volvo sales jumped 18 percent. XC90 apart, Volvo was down three percent...
...
995 Jaguars: Jaguar sold fewer than 1,000 cars in September 2015, the first month since November 2012 that Jaguar failed to produce four-digit results....
...
44% Market Share: In a subcompact segment which slid three percent even in a particularly strong month for the U.S. auto industry, the segment-leading Nissan Versa jumped 50 percent to 18,053 September sales. That’s 44 percent of the category, a year-over-year market share gain of 16 percentage points.

158 Percent: Some of the missing subcompact car buyers are spending a little bit more cash to get into a subcompact SUV, an urban crossover, a cute-ute, a whatever-you-wanna-call-it. Led by the Jeep Renegade, these little utility vehicles jumped 158 percent to 40,713 units in September, just below the 41,220 vehicles sold in the core subcompact category...
...
3/10: Only 30 percent of the passenger car nameplates on sale in the United States are generating greater sales volume in 2015 than they did in the first nine months of 2014.
