    [​IMG] YTD U.S. Auto Sales were off 1.4 percent.

    Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – Dec. 1, 2017

    2017 Toyota Prius Prime - $28,219 to start including mats and $895 D&H charge. On the East Coast, there is $3,500 on the hood, $4,500 Fed TC, and in Calif., a $1,500 Tax rebate and HOV Lane Access are also available. The Prime offers owners 25-miles of all-electric range and a superlative 55/53 mpg city/highway rating. Best in the industry in fact.

    With November 2017 now in the books, there was one standout that is important to us.

    As has been the case for month after month and year after year, Ford’s F-150 topped the U.S. Sales chart again. Besides being named “Truck of Texas” at the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) Truck Rodeo, the 2018 F-150 was recently named Motor Trend’s 2018 Truck of the Year. For 40 years and counting, it has been America’s number one selling truck and November showed no change to its success. In November, the F-Series not only topped its segment, it bested all other makes models with 26,329 vehicles separating it from the next bestselling model and its closest rival, the Chevrolet Silverado.

    The all-new 8th gen 2018 Toyota Camry was also a November standout and running on all cylinders. Sales of 34,991 vehicles was 11,993 more than the all-new and award winning 10th gen Honda Accord. Nissan sales have been delayed until Monday due to a IT systems outage that began yesterday, and within the brand the Altima is the only car that stands a chance to compete against the very well received Camry.

    And one of those vehicles near and dear to most of us is the Prius Prime. While at the 2017 #LAAutoShow, I was informed that the 2019 or 2020 Toyota Prius Prime will at some point include the center rear seat making it a 5-passenger vehicle. That is very good news. In November, the Prius Prime was purchased by 1,834 new owners and lead the PHEV segment by more than 132 vehicles over the Volt, its chief rival.

    The Prime’s success continues into YTD results of 18,516 has overtaken the Volt by 104 vehicles. December will be a make or break moment for both models to see which PHEV will top the EV segment chart over the course of 2017.

    2018 Hyundai KONA

    [​IMG]

    At this week’s #LAAutoShow, Hyundai unveiled the U.S. production version of its Kona sub-compact B-segment CUV.
    [​IMG]

    Although its EPA ratings have yet to be released, the all-new Hyundai nameplate is being propelled by the brands proven 2017/2018 Elantra and Elantra Sport drivetrains. The first is the atkinsonized 147 hp and 132 lb.-ft. of torque 2.0L I4 mated to a 6-speed AT. In the two top trims, the Limited and Ultimate, the Kona will be equipped with the more powerful 175 hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque 1.6L I4 mated to the brands own 7-speed DCT AT.

    I am guessing we will see a 26/35 mpg city/highway for the 2.0L GDI and 24/30 mpg city/highway for the 1.6L GDI-T.

    [​IMG]
    Notice the flat cargo load floor?​

    2018 Kona Highlights

    Optional color-contrasting roof
    LED headlamps, taillamps, and DRLs
    Standard 7” floating touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto

    Forward Collision with Pedestrian Detection
    Driver Attention Warning
    Lane Keep Assist
    Blind-Spot Warning
    Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
    High Beam Assist

    Upgrades include an 8-inch embedded NAVI system, next generation Blue Link, Heads-up Display, Rain-sensing Wipers, and Qi wireless smartphone charging.

    [​IMG]

    If only the Kona was available with the 1.4L GDI-T I4 Kappa mated to the 7-speed AT from the Elantra Eco or the Ioniq's 1.6L GDI I4 Kappa with the full hybrid drivetrain. My prediction is that Hyundai is waiting for higher fuel prices as both would be drop ins. :)

    November Elantra sales of 19,060 were up 20.7 percent above the 15,796 sold in November of 2016. YTD sales of 176,860 were down 6.3 percent below the 188,763 sold through the same period of 2016. This may be an indication that the Fleet sales reduction targets may have finally been reached and we will see a normalizing of results going forward. Maybe?

    Another highlight was the Tucson which outsold both the Santa Fe and Sonata to become the brands number two seller in the U.S. during November.

    The Tucson achieved November sales of 11,532 vehicles, up 51.4 percent over the 7,616 sold in November of 2016. YTD sales of 103,102 were up a strong 27.2 percent over the 81,037 sold through the same period of 2016.

    2018 Kia Niro PHEV-26

    [​IMG]

    From the Kia stand at the #LAAutoShow earlier this week, the most efficient CUV receives a plug.​

    The 2018 Niro Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV-26) is the latest addition to the brands alternative fuel car line-up which includes the Soul EV, Optima Hybrid, Optima Plug-in Hybrid, and Niro Hybrid.

    Rated at an EPA-estimated 26 miles of All-Electric Range1, Niro PHEV can help some drivers consume less gasoline in most driving conditions and in all-electric mode it produces zero emissions. With the total driving range of more than 560 miles, it offers fantastic range and all the utility the CUV is known for.

    The Niro PHEV-26 includes a modified front grille insert and surround, hybrid blue exterior accents, available LED headlamps, a charge port door (on left front fender), available 7” color meter cluster with digital tachometer and “ECO/Plug-In” badges.

    2018 Kia Niro PHEV-26 Drivetrain

    The Kia Niro PHEV-26 pairs the Guinness World Record setting all-aluminum, 104 hp and 109 lb.-ft.of torque atkinsonized 1.6L GDI I4 mated to a 6-speed DCT AT with an 8.9 kWh lithium-polymer traction battery and powerful 60-HP electric motor. The drivetrain’s combined output is 139 hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque.

    Along with its EPA rated 26-miles from the plug, its 48/44 mpg city/highway rating while on gasoline is over the top great for a CUV!

    The Niro PHEV26’s high voltage traction battery is located under the cargo load floor and under the rear seat yet maintains the same cargo capacity as the Niro hybrid! Via the charge port in the driver’s side front fender, a full charge from flat can be achieved in 2.5 hours via a 240V (Level 2) charger, and 9 hours via a std. 120V (Level 1) outlet.

    2018 Kia Niro PHEV-26 Cargo Volume

    [​IMG]
    Cargo volume of 19.4/54.5 cu. ft. with the seats up/seats down is the exact same as the Hybrid model!​

    The 2018 Kia Niro PHEV is built on the same platform as the conventional Niro, utilizing over 50 percent Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), hot-stamped steel components, and industrial joint adhesive which together increase torsional rigidity and structural integrity.

    Korean engineers were also able to reduce weight in other areas thanks in part to the use of aluminum for the hood, tailgate, front lower control arms, front and rear knuckles, and brake calipers.

    2018 Kia Niro PHEV-26

    [​IMG]
    The interior is modern, inviting, and comfortable.​

    Like the Niro hybrid, the Niro PHEV seats five and offers the same great crossover functionality and generous cargo capacity. The Niro PHEV will be offered in LX, EX and EX Premium trims.

    2018 Kia Niro PHEV Safety

    The Niro PHEVs greatest attribute following its efficiency capability from the plug or on gasoline is its Advanced driver assistance equipment.

    All three trims include a rear-view camera with dynamic guidelines, Autonomous Emergency Braking System (AEB), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Lane Keep Assist (LKA) with Driver Attention Alert, and Radar Cruise Control standard.

    The EX trim adds Blind Spot Detection System (BSD), Lane Change Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).

    Moving to the EX Premium trim, it adds the Front and Rear Park Assist Sensors.

    2018 Kia Niro PHEV Infotainment

    The Niro PHEV-26 includes UVO eco in which drivers can remotely monitor and charge their vehicle’s battery, schedule charging, preset the vehicle’s cabin temperature, turn on window defrosters, heat the steering wheel, lock or unlock doors, and find their vehicle from their smartphone.

    [​IMG]

    We should know the full pricing detail of the 2018 Kia Niro PHEV prior to it reaching dealership showrooms before the end of the year.

    November Niro sales broke back above the 2,000 mark with sales of 2,235 vehicles. YTD sales of 24,840 indicated the Niro’s first year sales will easily breach 25,000 vehicles sold. Not bad for a first year Hybrid offering imho. :)

    The other brand highlight includes the Forte which achieved November sales of 8,363 vehicles, up 3.1 percent over the 8,111 sold in November of 2016. YTD sales of 109,674 were up 14.6 percent over the 95,732 sold through the same period of 2016.

    2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS450

    [​IMG]
    It is a great looking car.​

    The 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS World Premiere occurred at the 2017 #LAAutoShow earlier this week, and is slated for Mercedes-Benz U.S. showrooms in the Fall of 2018.

    The luxurious interior of the CLS Coupe exudes luxury with the flowing contours. The high-grade choice of materials is incredible.

    The driver and front passenger surrounds include soothing color combinations thanks in part to the wave-like lines from the front to the rear doors. As a new highlight of the ambient lighting, the illuminated air vents are reminiscent of jet aircraft turbines. The center console with high-gloss wood appears to be free-floating thanks to its surface trim.

    The CLS450 is equipped with a high-resolution central display of 12.3 inches, and is optionally available with two 12.3-inch displays that merge to form a wide-screen cockpit beneath a glass cover.

    The fully digital drivers display can be configured in three different themes, Classic, Sport or Progressive, to suit the drivers wants or needs.

    The ambient lighting is individually adjustable in 64 colors, and also includes the air vents. When the temperature setting of the air conditioning system is changed, it briefly changes color to show whether the temperature is being made warmer (red) or cooler (blue).

    The seats were also newly designed exclusively for this model series with high- quality piping. The outer seats in the rear have the same appearance as the front seats, creating a sporty single-seat impression, although the CLS Coupe is in fact a five-seater for the first time. When required the backrests can be folded down in a 40/20/40 ratio.

    2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS450 Interior

    [​IMG]
    Beautifully crafted interior with natural materials and just a damn gorgeous place to sit for a few hours per day.​

    2019 Mercedes-Benz CLS450 Mild Hybrid Drivetrain

    The third generation Mercedes-Benz CLS is powered by a completely new I6 engine with an electric “twist”.

    The all-new electrified I6 with EQ Boost (integrated starter/generator) and a 48 volt onboard electrical system powers the CLS450 and CLS450 4MATIC. The I6 itself provides 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque while the 48V mild hybrid system adds an additional 21 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque for the short duration that the 48V storage can supply. Mercedes said the ICE will shut down during a glide while the battery is recharged during breaking. The new I6 delivers the performance of a V8 with significantly lower consumption. The CLS450 is also equipped with a particulate filter.

    November GLC sales of 5,357 were up 38.2 percent above the 3,876 sold in November of 2016. YTD sales of 42,491 was down 3.1 percent below the 43,854 sold through the same period of 2016.

    The Sprinter achieved November sales of 3,274 vehicles, up 27.7 percent over the 2,564 sold in November of 2016. YTD sales of 30,947 was up 1.7 percent over the 30,444 sold through the same period of 2016.

    From the BMW area at the 2017 #LAAutoShow I snapped this... At the same, BMW introduced their i Vision Dynamics all-electric four-door Gran Coupe to the U.S. automotive media. The all-electric can run to 60 mph in 4.0 seconds, has a top speed of 120 mph with an all-electric range of 373 miles. <-- More than likely this is an NEDC rating so maybe closer to 300 miles here. That is still significant!

    BMW i Vision Dynamics combines electric mobility with the core values of BMW meaning brash performance with uncompromising luxury. The new characterization of BMW i’s iconic window profile is a standout feature of the BMW i Vision Dynamics, offering all passengers equally striking views out of the vehicle to lend a shared driving experience – a factor that will become increasingly relevant as semi- and autonomous driving become closer to commonplace.

    By 2025 BMW will be offering 25 models with an electrified drive system – of which 12 will be pure-electric.

    In November, the brands 5-Series was a standout with sales of 4,002 vehicles, up 255.4 percent above the 1,126 sold in November of 2016. YTD sales of 35,915 was up 18.6 percent over the 30,293 sold through the same period of 2016.

    It's pretty crazy that Subaru has overtaken Kia, and is getting closer to Hyundai.

    Hi Mike:

    So true and Subaru has overtaken Hyundai numerous times this year!

    However, Subaru sales the past two months have been just barely positive. I am not sure the Ascent is going to move the bar that much either? Hyundai's forced fleet sales reduction appears to be coming to an end so their sales declines should also be coming to an end soon as well. With the all-new Kona, I suspect they will experience sales gains of 5 to 7 percent due to that platform alone from maybe February or March forward. Then again, Sonata sales have tanked just like the Mazda6 and Passat. Meaning the possibility of less than 7,500 for the foreseeable future. All three are better cars than many of the more expensive and far thirstier CUVs that people are jumping into instead but it appears most want that higher riding experience and large open cargo volume.

    It will be an interesting 2018 as Mazda and its all-new 6 and Subaru with its all-new Ascent have not said anything about their EPA ratings other than they are efficient. Gasoline is $3.00 to $3.50/gallon here in California which is by far the largest state for auto sales in the country. 33 percent higher than second place FL and 44 percent higher than third place TX. At some point, efficiency is going to matter. That is not news to you given Canadian location. Considering Canadian Ford Trucks/SUV/CUVs outsell Ford cars by over 8:1, maybe gas prices do not matter?

    Q5 may have highest sales but for Audi actually it's the A5 Sportback that got best growth. Seems there's a decent size niche market for luxury liftbacks as alternative.

    I like the Subaru since their unit of measure is Golden retrievers. Speaking of which....
