It's time for another monthly review of auto sales in the US. Surprisingly, more than one million people each month still buy the equivalent of 21st-century horses. I think the most interesting snack, however, comes from a quick run through of the companies and the vehicle departments and the determination of which sales tax revenues declined (compared to the same month in 2018).
I pay special attention to the vehicle division because of the great attention Tesla Model 3. It is the only truly mass-market electric vehicle that is currently for sale, and it certainly brings many customers from the gas vehicles of Tesla. I'm often curious about which competitors are hurt the most – and what they do about it. In other words, a broader context is always important, and it is well known that people are also switching from cars to SUVs and crossovers. Remember, when you compare the numbers.
Unfortunately, there are a handful of companies that do not do this Monthly Monthly Numbers – Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, Ford, GM and Tesla. Hmm, interesting – it just impressed me that these are the 4 major US automakers. (Ford and GM had previously shared monthly sales, but not last year.) We need to wait for the beginning of the next quarter before we can re-examine the sales of these companies, but you can review first quarter sales reports here , here, here and here.
These are the companies and auto divisions whose sales decreased in April 2019 compared to April 2018:
|Kia Cars [Lexus||-11%|
|] Mercedes Cars||-16%  Toyota||-4%|
These are the companies and cars divisions whose sales in April 2019 compared with the 20. April has risen 18:
|2% 19659051] Nissan||10%|
|Subaru  8%|
Tesla's premium competitors were again struck down for the most part. In addition, the top sellers Toyota and Honda were hit. On the other hand, Hyundai, Nissan and Volkswagen performed particularly well and BMW gained 1% overall.
Overall, the top 5 selling cars in the US fell massively in April 2019 compared to April 2018. In terms of sales since the beginning of the year, 6 of the top 7 cars posted a decline in sales, while the other (Honda's Agreement), a change of 0% was recorded.

 What shocks me is, frankly, that the people Mostly continue to buy crappy cars, crossovers and SUVs and sleep in front of Tesla's superiority. For the most part, there is a simple reason for this: people know little about Tesla vehicles and have often actually digested disinformation . People are unaware of the fact that Tesla vehicles are much safer and faster, have much better infotainment and better driver assistance features.
You do not know that a Tesla Model 3 is even cheaper than a Honda Accord or Toyota Camry despite ~ 1000 × more fun . People do not know that a Tesla Model 3 will cost about half as much over a five-year period as a BMW 320i, but still about ~ 733x more fun.
Will consumers learn? In time. It will be interesting to observe and document how the public is awakened by the superiority of well-designed electric vehicles. In the meantime, you have to feel a bit bad for all those people who still buy Camrys, Accords, Civics, Corollas, Sentras, Altimas, Elantras, BMWs, Audis, Acuras and other Crapmobiles.
