With 1.34 million units sold year-to-date, new-vehicle sales in 2019 are down more than 4 per cent year-over-year. That said, automakers experienced an upswing last month in total new vehicle sales for the first time in 17 months. New-vehicle sales volumes in the month of August were up 1 per cent compared to last year.

As expected, light trucks continued to strengthen their hold on the industry during this period, while passenger cars continued to slip. The Toyota RAV4, Honda Civic and Ford F-Series were the top-selling SUV, sedan and pickup trucks, respectively, during the month of August.

Automakers and dealers alike remain resilient in the face of market volatility and continue to push their products through new channels – such as digital retailing, in-store customer experiences and virtual reality – while also driving sales through tried-and-true methods like incentive offers.
