    August 2017 B and C-Segment Top 10 Sales and Rankings

    [​IMG]

    B and C-Segment sales items of note: In the B-Segment, Ford's Fiesta is quietly moving up to challenge the perennial sales champ Nissan Versa and Honda Fit. The Hyundai Accent experienced the steepest sales decline in the segment.

    Regarding the C-segment, the Civic simply dominated and it was not even close. Chevrolet's Cruze moved up a significant 3 spots from 6th to 3rd despite the large August sales percentage fall off. Hyundai's Elantra sales fell the most on a percentage basis while the platform sharing Kia Forte achieved the largest sales increase on a percentage basis.

    August 2017 D and Utility Segment Top 10 Sales and Rankings

    [​IMG]

    D-segment sales items of note: With the highly regarded all-new 8th gen Toyota Camry reaching dealership showrooms in mass including the most efficient midsize available in the form of the 51/53 mpg city/highway rated LE Hybrid, it was no surprise to see it vault to the top of the D-segment sales charts by a significant margin. Chevrolet's Malibu moved up a significant 3-spots from 6th to 3rd. The once formidable Altima is falling into mediocrity. Hyundai's Sonata, Kia's Optima, VW's Passat, and Mercedes-Benz's E-Class all had similar 20+ percentage sales declines.

    Utility sales items of note: The well built Toyota RAV4 owned this segment having an almost 40 percent gap to the second place Honda CR-V. Rogue has fallen 3 spots in as many months despite the best online marketing in the segment. The darling goes to the all-new 2018 Equinox with sales increasing by almost 85 percent.

    August 2017 Pickup Segment Top 10 Sales and Rankings

    [​IMG]

    Pickup sales items of note: The F-series continues to achieve astounding sales volumes over the rest of the segment. GM is making progress with overall truck sales thanks mainly to the Silverado and Colorado volumes which in turn shows GMs pickup truck lineup in total outselling Ford's F-Series. Tacoma continues to astound despite my own personal distaste for its poor efficiency, ergonomics, and price.

    August 2017 Electrified Segments Top 10 Sales and Rankings

    [​IMG]

    Electrified sales items of note: The real standout is the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid as volumes continue to climb. A few more months of this and it may even surpass the struggling Prius liftback! Fusion Hybrid moved back ahead of the very steady Niro sales. The Kia Niro as its sales continue to hold in the 2,500+ range once again. It is good to see the most efficient vehicle in the segment holding onto sales volumes with little discounting proving its resilience. If only more Texan's were in it instead of their CUV/SUV/Pickup of choice, there would be no gasoline shortage in the region. Ioniq sales continue to struggle possibly due to minor incentive help from Hyundai.

    On the plug-in front, the Prius Prime continues to move forward placing both the Volt and the Leaf in its rear view. Ford's Fusion Energi and C-MAX Energi swapped places in August.
