July 2014 Sales: Too Many Record-Breaking Numbers

By | August 01, 2014
This month, we had to read about nearly every automaker's record-breaking July. While we're glad that the majority of the automakers are continuing to post positive numbers month after month, we don't know just how each one is pulling out a record sales month if their main competitors are reporting the same thing. Notable performances this month include the Smart car, which saw a 57.1 percent increase in sales when compared to July last year. Jeep had the second-best month with an increase of 41 percent. Subaru also saw a jump in sales with a 27 percent increase. Those automakers that didn't do so well this month include Acura, Cadillac, Honda, Mini, Volkswagen, and Volvo, but we hope as the summer winds down that their numbers will increase. Check out the chart below to see how all automakers stacked up this month.
