During the first half of the year, the automotive industry experienced a significant decrease in sales compared with the H1 2019 car sales report. The vast majority of vehicles saw their sales dropped. However, this big decrease in car sales is easy to understand given the situation that marked the first semester of 2020 in the US and the world.

Although Ford F-series fell by 18.6% in sales, it continues to maintain its undisputed first position as the best-selling car in the US with a total of 367,387 units sold. Ford still maintains a significant difference with its forerunner.

Chevrolet Silverado is the only model that obtained a positive results during 2020 compared to the best-selling cars report of H1 2019. The Silverado reached the second position with an increase of 2.89% selling a total of 264,442 vehicles during this period.

The Ram Pickup lost its position in the table during the H1, occupying the third place with a total of 246,253 vehicles sold. The Pickup has seen a 17.77% drop in sales compared with 2019.

The RAV4 which occupies the fourth position, has seen the smallest decrease during this first half of the year with only 8.59% decline.

Although their new hybrid model was launched in mid-March, it did not prevent Honda CR-V from having 21.5% fewer sales compared to the same time last year. Yet, the CR-V keeps its 5th position one more year.

Honda Civic climbed from position 9 to position 6, with a total of 127,858 vehicles sold, leaving behind Toyota Camry and Chevrolet Equinox that had lower sales during this period.

The Camry loses a position and goes from number 6 to number 7, with a loss of 28.46%. Despite its descent, this vehicle remains above its arch-rival Honda Accord during the first half of 2020.

Toyota Corolla climbs one position, ranking number 9 with a total of 109,601 cars sold.

Nissan Rogue sales have fallen by 38.97% going from 7th to 10th place position and it is the largest loss in sales on this list.

We’ll have to wait for the US automotive industry statistics for the third quarter and then for the entire year to fully understand how the automotive sector evolves.
