    With the new year upon us and record low unemployment rates about to be announce tomorrow, U.S. auto sales of 1.41 million vehicles was flat on a volume basis and down 4.0 percent on a daily selling rate basis. With more employment, you would think the consumer would be spending more on a new automobile, second only to a home as the most expensive purchase many consumers make. This is unusual.

    There were winners and losers in January. Toyota moved ahead of Ford on the continuing strength of its Camry and RAV4.

    Nissan sales were also strong placing Honda further back into its rear view on the back of its hot selling Rogue and is now for the first time is within striking distance of FCA! Nissan January sales are unusually strong year after year so there is a ways to go. The sales uptick however is still noteworthy.

    Subaru continues is hot sales streak eeking out a 1.1 percent increase on a volume basis placing Hyundai even further back.

    Mazda appears to have finally woke up as its sales rank moved ahead of both VW and BMW which fell two positions.

    BillLin MASS: 2012 Pip and 2017 Prime

    What's happening to Volt sales? Surely people aren't giving up on this great car just because it's "going away" in a few years? Bolt's holding for January, and I don't see it taking sales from Volt. I could be wrong. I pulled some full year numbers for 2017 from the thread below. The Jan18/17 numbers are from above.

    Bolt 23,297 full year 2017 (new)
    Volt 20,349 full year 2017 (-17.7% under 2016)
    Prime 20,936 full year 2017 (new)

    Bolt 1,177 Jan18 (1.3% over Jan17)
    Volt 713 Jan18 (-55.7% under Jan17)
    Prime 1,496 Jan18 (9.5% over Jan17)

    December 2017 U.S. Auto Sales Down 5.9% With 1.59 Million Vehicles Sold, YTD Sales Were Down 1.8%

    HI Bill:

    I always thought the First and second gen Volt was too small (B-Segment proportions) and over priced by ~ $5,000 so GM could take much of the Fed TC for themselves. Just my opinion however.

    With the December deals on the Prime, that surely helped that models December sales. I was surprised to see the high numbers in January though.

    Another hit against GM is the Tesla Model3 looks so much nicer than the Bolt. Why buy a Bolt?
