    [​IMG] Rogue and Titan make the brand. LEAF makes the news.

    [​IMG]Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – June 1, 2017

    2017 Nissan LEAF S w/ the 30 kWh pack - $31,565 incl. the $885 D&H charge to start while offering owners an EPA rated 107 miles of all-electric range (AER). In some states, the $7,500 Fed TC, $2,500 State Incentive incl. HOV lanes, and as much as a $5k discount from the dealership according to TrueCar, an estimated $16,500 +TTL on the $31k+ vehicle looks very enticing for a new hyper efficient car.

    Nissan just announced that is giving away free fuel at select gas stations in five cities throughout the Northeast to encourage consumers to "Kick Gas" for good and consider owning an all-electric vehicle.

    The gas station takeover will reach five states this summer including the following:
    • Massachusetts
    • Maryland
    • New York
    • Connecticut
    • New Jersey
    Consumers will be able to find the target stations by following Nissan's social media channels with the #KickGas hashtag.

    I am not entirely sure what the following statement means but free gas for hundreds or three is still free fuel.
    Nissan May 2017 Sales Overview

    In May, Nissan sold 137,471 vehicles, up 3.0 percent over the 133,496 sold in May of 2016. On a Daily Selling Rate (DSR) basis, May sales were down 1.1 percent.

    YTD sales of 676,360 are up 2.9 percent over the 657,561 sold through the same period of 2016.

    Overall sales of Nissan crossovers, trucks and SUVs set a May record, up 22 percent.


    Rogue was as hot as a $2.00 pistol setting a new May record with sales of 32,533, up 18.6 percent over the 27,428 sold in May of 2016. YTD sales of 161,340 are up an even more impressive 34.9 percent over the 119,637.

    Titan sales of 4,937 trucks was up 436 percent over the 922 sold in May of 2016. YTD sales of 20,265 is up an incredible 289.5 percent over the 5,203 sold through the same period of 2016.

    The highlight vehicle, the LEAF, achieved sales of 1,392, up 42.2 percent over the 979 sold in May of 2016. YTD sales of 5,742 are up 22.2 percent over the 4,697 sold through the same period of 2016.

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


    To begin, Ford outselling GM in May and gaining 0.5 percent market share was the big news. Both Hyundai and FCA lost .6 percent market share.


    The Accord broke back into the Top 10 last month and this month moved to number 5. I have not looked up incentive addons but there appears to be a hard push to move Accords at Honda dealerships nationwide. Not a bad car to be pushing either.


    Segment Items of note

    Despite the large incentives, both the aging Focus and new Cruze outsold the new Elantra.

    Sonata sales are slumping. The Tucson at 10,600 units in May is closing in on making Sonata the number 3 seller in the flying H lineup. Something that has never occurred before.

    CUVs are still hot.

    In the pickup truck segment, for the second month in a row Ford’s F-Series has outsold the entire GM pickup truck lineup, RAM outsold the Silverado for the third month in a row and Nissan's Titan appears to be leveling off near the 5k mark with Ridgeline hovering around 3k/month.

    When it comes to Hybrids, the Prius lineup is beginning to feel competitor’s offerings with the Kia Niro and Hyundai Ioniq together taking 4,487 sales that may have went to the Prius or possibly the hot selling RAV4 Hybrid previously. Kia’s Niro achieved sales of 2,660 and its monthly sales volume for the first time since its intro has fallen below the prior months result. Prius c is way off the mark and if there was ever a time to see a second gen, now is that time.

    In the Electric segment, Toyota's Prius Prime for the second month outsold the Volt while the Bolt picked up quite a bit from last month’s sub 1k/mo sales result.

    U.S. May 2017 Sales vs. May 2016 Sales Ranks and Results for the top 18 Automobile Manufacturers
    In May, Ford moved ahead of GM as the number one U.S. Auto Manufacturer. This is a May anomaly but one we will be watching going forward. Mitsubishi moved ahead of Jaguar/Land Rover for the 15th spot.

    On a volume basis, May 2017 U.S. auto sales were up 4.1 percent. On a Daily Selling Rate (DSR) basis, May sales were up 0.05 percent.

    2017 YTD sales of 6.97 million vehicles is down 1.6 percent from the 7.08 million sold through the same period and same number of sales days in 2016.

    There were 25 selling days in May of 2017 vs. 24 in May of 2016 and 125 days in both 2017 and 2016 as described numerous times above.
