    Hi All:

    I just received the Ford Electrified sales breakouts and posted them in the OP today. It will take the rest of the day to complete the segment Top 10 breakouts but in the HEV and PHEV/BEV segments, the raw data looks like this:

    HEVs

    Fusion Hybrid - 5,697
    Toyota Prius - 5,476
    RAV4 Hybrid - 3,709
    Niro - 2,188
    Accord Hybrid - 1,799
    Highlander Hybrid - 1,478
    Camry Hybrid - 1,355
    Ioniq HEV – 1,348
    C-MAX - 936
    Prius c - 867
    Prius v - 773
    RX Hybrid - 655
    Sonata Hybrid - 653
    CT Hybrid - 615
    ES Hybrid - 481
    Avalon Hybrid - 352

    PHEV/BEVs

    Volt - 1,745
    Bolt - 1,642
    Prius Prime - 1,619
    LEAF 1,506
    C-MAX PHEV - 936
    Fusion PHEV - 707
    i3 - 567
    A3 e-tron - 324
    eGolf - 232
    Focus BEV - 110
    Sonata PHEV - 88
    Ioniq BEV - 58

    Looking at the above, the Fusion Hybrid moves ahead of the Prius liftback for the third time this year. January, March, and now June. YTD sales of 31,537 still lag the Prius liftbacks 33,112 sold through the first 6-months of 2017 but it will be a competition to watch.

    BillLin MASS: 2018 Bolt EV and 2017 Prime

    I'm looking forward to the Ford Escape hybrid showing up... I hope it wasn't just a rumour. The 2018 Camry hybrid, too.

    Hi All:

    1.46 million vehicles were sold in the U.S. during June of 2017 down 3.3 percent below the 1.51 million sold in in June of 2016.

    June's Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate (SAAR) came in at just under 17 million.

    2017 U.S. first half YTD sales of 8.43 million were down 1.9 percent from the 8.59 million sold through the first half of 2016 YTD.

    With a record 17.49 million vehicles sold in 2016, 2017 should still be another solid year although I am predicting we will be under 17 million vehicles sold falling below both 2015 (17.45 million sold) and 2016s (17.49 million sold) if the present sales softening trend continues.

    Remember that when the U.S. economy experiences a drop in GDP no matter how slight, it is called a recession. While many OEMs are excusing the falloff on reduced rental fleet sales, the industry-wide pull-back is surely keeping board members and CEOs awake at night despite the U.S. economic fundamentals still being positive.
