    Honda June 2017 Sales Overview

    Honda (Honda and Acura) June sales of 139,793 vehicles was up 0.8 percent above the 138,715 sold in June of 2016. The Daily Selling Rate (DSR) was equal to the raw volume as there were 26 sales days in both June of 2016 and June of 2017.

    YTD sales of 791,886 was down 0.1 percent below the 792,355 sold through the same period of 2016. DSR and raw volumes were also equivalent with 152 selling days in both 2017 and 2016.

    Honda on its own achieved June 2017 sales of 125,755 vehicles, down 1.3 percent below the 127,363 sold in June of 2017. YTD sales of 718,015 were up 0.7 percent above the 713,361 sold through the same period of 2016.

    Acura achieved June 2017 sales of 14,038 vehicles, up 23.7 percent over the 11,352 sold in June of 2017. YTD sales of 73,871 were down 6.5 percent below the 78,994 sold through the same period of 2016.


    Honda’s Civic and Accord remain at the top of the brands car sales charts with the Civic just missing the Corolla’s U.S. June sales results by just 132 vehicles.

    With the 10th gen Accord reveal is just a week away and dealership availability this fall, it can still sell in amazing quantity. Last month, the Accord achieved sales of 29,791, up 3.4 percent over the 28,806 sold in June of 2016. YTD sales of 160,091 was down 5.5 percent below the 169,354 sold through the same period of 2016.

    The U.S. Automobile June 2017 vs. June 2016 Market Share results.


    To begin, GM moved back ahead of Ford in June although market share is down .3 percent from last June. Toyota gained 0.7 percent and took back what both GM and Ford lost. Nissan gained 0.5 percent while Hyundai took a hard hit, down 0.8 percent. Subaru continued its streak of increasing market share with a 3.6 percent share in June, up 0.5 percent over its share in June of 2016.


    The Silverado finally outsold RAM which had been in the number two spot for the past three months. It also appears someone was pushing Equinox's as mentioned above allowing it to enter the Top 10.

    Rogue is now the #1 selling CUV in the U.S. with its main rival, the CR-V falling out of the Top 10 for the first time in a long time. The RAV4 is right on the Rogue’s heels too!

    The Corolla continues to amaze with a 6th spot in June’s Top 10 U.S. auto sales. It does not feel like a Top 10 car but you cannot fault the almost 1,500 Toyota dealerships ability to move metal despite its lack of competitive features and pricing.


    Segment Items of note

    While the Versa continues to hold onto its number one spot, the harsh sales fall was telling of the marketing and sales push that Nissan is providing it. The Rio has all but fallen off the radar of most apparently.

    In the C-Segment, the large incentives did not help Elantra as the aging Focus and middling Sentra and Corolla easily outsold it. The all-new Impreza is showing newfound Consumer demand. To think it was ever going to be close to the Jetta is noteworthy!

    In the D-segment, Accord and Camry continue to battle for midsize supremacy. Camry will be first to reach dealership showrooms with their all-new model while the all-new 10th gen Accord online reveal in Detroit on the 14th should be a worthwhile watch. The rental fleet darling Malibu is really taking a haircut while Sonata and Passat are not doing well at all either.

    CUVs continue to be America’s choice. Rogue continues its award-winning ways with its segment result moving from third, to second and now into fist over the past three months. Talk about firing on all cylinders!

    In the pickup truck segment, for the third month in a row Ford’s F-Series has outsold the entire GM pickup truck lineup.

    When it comes to Hybrids, the Prius lineup has succumbed to competitor’s offerings all year. The Fusion Hybrid moved ahead of the Prius liftback for the third time this year. January, March, and now June. The Fusion Hybrids 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 through the second half of the year.

    The Kia Niro and Hyundai Ioniq together achieved sales of just 3,536 vehicles in June, down a significant 21.2 percent from the 4,487 the combo sold last month. This is the second month in a row in which Niro sales have fallen below their previous months result showing early momentum and marketing promotion have stalled. On the Ioniq front, in April sales were 1,316, may May saw a nice uptick to 1,827 and now June with sales of just 1,348 vehicles, back down to April levels. A lack of inventory on dealerships lots of either model across the country may have something to do with it? With healthy incentives on both the std. 4th gen Prius undercutting the Ioniqs MSRP by thousands, pricing will have to be adjusted accordingly. The Prius Prime's recent incentive increases are going to make it tough for both the Niro and Ioniq PHEVs when they arrive in just a matter of weeks.

    The Accord Hybrid is selling well while the hot RAV4 Hybrid appears to have topped out.

    In the Electric segment, both Volt and the Bolt moved back ahead of the Prius Prime.

    Within the OEM ranks, Nissan is ever so slowly placing Honda in its rear view. And Kia outsold its parent Hyundai. I was not expecting to see that.

    In June 1.46 million vehicles were sold in the U.S., 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. Monthly Auto Industry Sales Totals

    January 2017 (+.01 million): 1.14 million vs 1.13 million sold in January of 2016
    February 2017 (-.01 million): 1.32 million vs 1.33 million sold in February of 2016
    March 2017 (-.05 million): 1.54 million vs 1.59 million sold in March of 2016
    April 2017 (-.06 million): 1.44 million vs. 1.50 million sold in April of 2016

    May 2017 (+.06 million): 1.52 million vs. 1.46 million sold in May of 2016
    June 2017 (-.06 million): 1.46 million vs. 1.51 million sold in June of 2016

    For the first half of 2017, U.S. 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 2016's (17.49 million sold) if the present sales softening trend continues.

    Remember that when the U.S. economy experiences a drop in GDP for three consecutive months 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.

    Honda just revealed next Accord. Looks like Hybrid finally has folding rear seats:):

    "Additionally, a new, more compact intelligent power unit (IPU), containing the hybrid battery pack and its control systems, is now mounted under the rear floor instead of in the trunk, preserving both cargo space (16.7 cu.-ft.) and the flexibility of a 60/40-split and folding rear seat, standard on all models and trims. Detailed specifications on the 2018 Accord Hybrid, including power and fuel-economy ratings, will be release closer to launch."
