US Tesla Sales Up 22% In 3rd Quarter, US Auto Sales Down 9%

October 12th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

As everyone knows, the automobile industry has been slammed in 2020, including in the United States. Below is a look at third quarter auto sales across the country as well as auto sales in the first three quarters of the year


US Auto Sales Down By 1.5 Million In 2nd Quarter, Amplifying Long Trends

August 10th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

US auto sales, as we all know by now, took a massive hit in the second quarter of 2020. After collecting the sales data of 31 auto brands (almost all of them), I decided to dig in a little deeper — and further back in time — to try to get a better sense of trends and which companies are facing particularly challenging mid- to long-term circumstances


Fossil Automakers Abandon US Monthly Sales Reporting

February 17th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

Now, 2020 has rolled around and a bunch more automakers have decided to ditch monthly sales reporting. Nissan (& Infiniti), Jaguar Land Rover, and Volkswagen (including Audi, Porsche, etc.) announced the change with press releases. Others didn't seem to announce it but just stopped publishing the monthly numbers (Mercedes, BMW, and Toyota)


Non-Tesla US Auto Sales Down 177,839 In 2019

January 7th, 2020 | by Zachary Shahan

The US auto industry took a bit of a whack in 2019. Excluding Tesla, auto sales were down by 177,839 units in 2019 compared to 2018. That said, only 13 auto brands saw their sales drop, while 18 saw their sales rise


US Gas Vehicle Sales Up Big In November, Still Down In 2019

December 7th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tracking monthly US auto sales by company or brand is one of the oddest-feeling things I've done in my decade or so covering cleantech. Perhaps that's because the focus is on tracking non-clean tech. The fact is, though, it shocks me every month to see how many people still buy gasoline cars. Gasoline cars are far worse than electric cars currently on the market for the same cost (or even less). Nonetheless, there are so many people buying clunky, noisy, slow, high-maintenance, low-tech, high-depreciation gasoline vehicles every single day. Objectively, it doesn't make sense


Tesla Cybertruck vs. RAM 1500

December 3rd, 2019 | by Johnna Crider

WheelsJoint has published a comparison between the Tesla Cybertruck and the RAM 1500. The article covered several categories, and Cybertruck pretty much had a better rating in almost all of them. This shows that Tesla brought a beast into the truck market that could definitely give RAM a run for its money. Let's have a quick look at some of the categories that WheelsJoint went over


How The Tesla CyberTruck Puts Ford, Chevy, & Ram In A Pickle

November 20th, 2019 | by Paul Fosse

In this article, I'll talk about how Tesla's announcement of its CyberTruck will hurt sales of other pickup trucks, even before the truck ships its first unit. Make sure you also read Frugal Moogal's article about the broad effects of the industry's transition to electric vehicles and compares this transition to how other industries dealt with (or didn't) their own transitions. Frugal also wrote an article that is more specific, dealing with the Mustang's effect on Ford


Nissan, Toyota, Infiniti, & MINI USA Sales Down In October & 2019; Hyundai, Kia, Honda, BMW, Genesis, & Volvo Sales Up

November 11th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Tracking monthly US auto sales has been a fascinating endeavor this past year. Unfortunately, we don't get data from some brands — Tesla, all Ford Motor Company brands, GM brands, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles brands, Jaguar Land Rover no longer report monthly sales. However, there are 17 brands that do report monthly US sales, so let's have a look at them


15 Automakers + 8 Additional Car Brands See Sales Drops In USA

April 6th, 2019 | by Zachary Shahan

Now that we've got a truly mass market electric car in the US (the 13th best selling car in the country in the first quarter of 2019 and the best selling luxury car), I've found it interesting to take a closer look at changes in all automakers' overall car and automobile sales. I meticulously track changes from month to month and quarter to quarter using automaker sales reports for this purpose
