June’s Fastest and Slowest Selling Cars

Posted on 03. Jul, 2012 by in Auto News

Seven brand new cars to a fast start. The Cadillac XTS hit dealers just last month, but GM's flagship luxury car just under five days to sell. It tied the Hyundai Accent sedan and Subaru BRZ for fastest sellers Yunis. The speedy GT and its twin Scion, the FR-S, now take only five to eight days to sell. Both cars hit retailers in May

We should see how many of each model sold in June, when sales figures throughout the day will be announced.

Ford has redesigned 2013 Escape, new Infiniti JX35 and two new Acuras – the ILX and redesigned RDX – also from the June Movers. The well marketed Kia Soul, now extended his term of office on the list for three months. Sales for the popular hatchback by 22% until May. It's the cheapest car on the list, with a starting price (including destination), $ 15,000.

Affordability remained in the passenger seat, with seven June 18 Movers starting under $ 20,000. Last month saw half the Movers – eight out of 16 nameplates – starting under $ 20,000, but May and June are a peak of earlier this year. From January to April, the ratio of movers under $ 20,000 never more than a third. Slow-selling luxury cars, in contrast, typical of the losers, and in June it was no different: the 10 name tags on average a starting price of more than $ 65,000.

Despite falling gas prices keep buyers interested economical cars. Case in point: the Toyota Prius family, the movers put under further – has done something popular Toyota hybrid since February. A total of six of the June movers have an EPA city and highway rating of 40 mpg or better. That's down from May. (Seven of 16 Movers), but a higher ratio than in January, February and April

Cars for sale in June, an average of 53 days. This is the 50 days from May 2011 is 58 days but less than June.

The lists
The Movers and Losers list reports the average number of days it takes to sell models from the day they arrive on the property until the final paperwork is signed by a buyer. This is not a day-of-inventory list like you may find on other sites. We now focus on 2012 and 2013 model years.

Movers for us. Only list vehicles that pass a certain threshold of sales in order to weed out limited editions could, ultra-high-performance cars and others that skew the numbers or otherwise misrepresent Popularity For Losers, we removed any threshold to 2012 models, which reflect the greatest incentives.

We changed the title of our Movers and Losers in the last month. But we still call themselves the lists are Movers and Losers.
