    Hi All:

    Still waiting on Ford but here are the U.S. May Top 10 Overall and Segment Results.

    Items of note: The RAM outsold the Silverado for the third month in a row and the Ford F-Series lineup outsold the entire GM Truck lineup for the second month in a row. Nissan's Titan appears to be leveling off near the 5k mark and Ridgeline around 3k/month.

    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.

    When it comes to Hybrids, the Prius lineup is beginning to feel competitors 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. Prius c is way off the mark and if we need to see a second gen, now is the time.

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

    Hi All:

    Hi All:

    The May 2017 Market Share detail vs May of 2016.

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    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.

    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.
