Fastest-Selling New Car Right Now Is A Little Chevy SUV
The coronavirus pandemic has obviously taken its toll on car sales in the United States in a recent study conducted by iSeeCars.com, it takes an average of 96.9 days to sell cars from March to June 2020. In contrast, the pre-corona average was 57.8 days and that is from November 2019 to February 2020.
“Effective demand for these vehicles has slowed in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic due to lockdowns and economic downturns, but the change has been much more dramatic for new vehicles than for used vehicles.” , said Phong Ly, CEO of iSeeCars.
However, there are cars that sell faster than most. This is based on data from over 9 million new and used cars sold from November 2019 to June 2020. Here are the top 10 best-selling cars in the United States during this period, excluding trucks. Of course, SUVs dominate other types of vehicles, but there is one among the bigger ones.
10. Lexus GX 460
Lexus starts the iSeeCars countdown with the GX 460. The full-size luxury SUV takes an average of 46.1 days to sell, which is less than half of the average for all new vehicles. It’s also one of two luxury names on this list.
9. Subaru Crosstrek
The Subaru Crosstrek ranks ninth because it takes 44.7 days to sell, according to the iSeeCars study. It is also the only Subaru to join the 10 best-selling cars, ahead of the Forester which placed 12th overall. It’s worth noting that the 2021 model year Crosstrek gets a slight price increase of $ 100.
8. Toyota RAV4 hybrid
The Toyota RAV4 is the best-selling SUV in the United States in 2019 and is still one of the best-sellers during the first quarter of 2020. With 92,500 hybrid RAV4 units moved in 2019, it is not surprising let the electrified crossover make the top-selling car list. According to the study, it takes 42.5 days to sell a Toyota RAV4 hybrid.
7. Chevrolet Bolt EV
The Chevrolet Bolt EV stands out in this study because it is the only non-SUV and the only fully electric model. According to iSeeCars, the Bolt EV sells after 41.7 days on average. which can be attributed to the attractive offers that accompany it. As the title suggests, however, this isn’t the only Chevy to sell out quickly.
6. Mercedes-Benz GLB
The Mercedes GLB is the best-selling vehicle in the United States when it comes to luxury cars. It takes an average of 40.5 days to sell this small SUV, which may be due to its better practicality than the GLA, combined with a relatively affordable price.
5. Hyundai Palisade
South Korean vehicles continue to gain popularity in the United States and the Hyundai Palisade is riding this wave very effectively. The study shows that the Palisade only takes 39 days to sell. The size, practicality and multitude of technological features seem to be the selling point of this SUV.
4. Honda CR-V hybrid
Much like the RAV4, the Honda CR-V continues to be a popular choice for American SUV buyers. It ranked high in the top 20 last year and also ranks well in this year’s ranking so far. The CR-V Hybrid takes fourth place in the iSeeCars study, needing just 35.2 days to get out of showrooms.
3. Kia Seltos
The first Kia on this list but not the last, the Seltos only takes a little over a month to sell. As the newest model in the South Korean lineup, the Seltos offers better cargo and passenger space than most of its competitors, as well as the availability of all-wheel drive on its entry-level trim.
2. Kia Telluride
The Telluride may share the same fundamentals as the Palisade, but this Kia sold out faster according to this study. It’s also Korea’s best-selling vehicle, which only needs 25.7 days before someone signs on the dotted line.
1. Chevrolet Trailblazer
The return of the Chevrolet Trailblazer to the US market looks promising as it only takes 19 days for someone to buy one, taking the top spot among the best-selling cars in the US, despite now being made in South Korea. and quite different from the mid-size Trailblazer from 2009, the Trailblazer’s under $ 20,000 price tag makes it attractive.
