November National U.S. Auto Sales Results

The smoke finally cleared Monday, although the month officially ended on Friday, November 30.  That’s just the way the calendar fell for November 2018.

Officially, this November ended .05% behind last year.  Conventional wisdom in the auto industry is anything less than 1% up or down is considered flat.

When everything was said and done, 1,392,244 new vehicles were sold last month versus 1,298,760 in November of 2017.  Earlier predictions from the “experts” predicted a 2%-4% decline, but as I said on the air last Saturday, the month felt OK to me, just based on talking to our dealers.

Here is your winners and losers list, those automakers that sold more or less this November versus last November.  These numbers, of course, do not include General Motors since they stupidly don’t report sales monthly like every other automaker.
