November (subcompact) car sales figures

Yes, doom and gloom, doom and gloom--terrible auto sales across the board. However, how did some of the automakers' subcompact cars fare?

  • Honda's new Fit was down 8.4% compared to this time last year. The Fit was the car least affected by the slump (sans the Honda Pilot, which actually sold better than last November).

  • Toyota's Yaris was down 16.6%, which fared better than other Toyota models. Overall Yaris sales are still up 23% from 2007. Scion's xD sales were down 27.5% from this time last year. Overall xD sales are not representative since the vehicle came out mid-year 2008

  • Hyundai's Accent was down 11.4%, although the car is still 42.5% from last year's total sales.

  • MINI's sales figures were actually up 43.1% for November. Well played.

  • Nissan's Versa was down 18.4%. Year to date figures were not available at this time

  • Chevrolet's Korean-made Aveo was down quite a bit: 39.4% from a year ago, with year-to-date sales down 12.5%.

  • At this time, Kia (and their Rio) and Suzuki (and their SX4) have not yet reported their November 2008 sales figures.

    Aw! I'm so sad! I really do feel bad for the car companies. I hope they make it through this.

    But mostly I hope this means that I'll be able to get a Fit at a decent price by next year. Tehe.
