September 2013 Sales: Industry Slips 4 Percent

By | October 01, 2013
September is shaping up as one of the weakest sales months this year. Overall, the industry had a decrease of 4 percent, with many automakers falling into a slump. Over half of all brands were in the negative last month, including Chevrolet, Hyundai, and Kia, which took some the biggest hits. Ford Motor Group and Chrysler Group managed to stay in the positive in September, boasting strong sales for their combined brands, while Toyota Motor Group, Honda Motor Co., and Nissan Motor Co. took some hits. In a surprising turn, it looks like the biggest winner of the month was Jaguar Land Rover, as Jaguar managed to pull an impressive 31 percent increase in monthly sales. Coming in second for the highest sales increase was Subaru, with a 14.7 percent increase over the same month last year. The automakers that managed to stay in the positives boasted records once again, and although it doesn't look too promising for the automotive industry right now, the holidays are right around the corner and sales will surely pick back up in the coming months. Check out the chart below to see this month's sales numbers.
