US – Midsize Car Sales Figures

The GCBC Analysis

Midsize car sales in the U.S. didn’t look so hot for the month of September. This is no surprise because the segment has been trending down all year.

In the month of September, the segment was down about 24,000 units when compared with this month last year. The YTD numbers show that the segment is down about 105,000 units.

The segment leader in terms of the overall volume is the Toyota Camry. However, it’s down considerably for both the month of September and YTD.

We expect the segment to continue to see drops in sales in the coming months.

We will report September 2019 Automotive Sales beginning on Tuesday, October 1st, 2019, beginning around 10 AM ET.

Data will trickle in throughout the day with the numbers being finalized by EOD. GCBC is also happy to announce that we will be adding quarterly sales reports and comparisons in addition to monthly sales comparisons beginning this quarter. We will also be adding monthly sales tables and charts to the mix as well.

Note: FCA US LLC will end its practice of reporting U.S. and Canada sales on a monthly basis following June results. FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the months of July, August, and September.
