Quote:
BMW, which benefitted from the success of its new-generation 3 series, increased sales 3 percent to 55,008 units in April. Mercedes boosted volume 5 percent to 50,896 vehicles last month because of strong demand for the new B class while Audi's sales rose 4 percent to 61,171.

US Auto sales May 2012

Quote:
By May, Japanese automakers, particularly Toyota and Honda, were running out of inventory to sell that couldn't be replaced. Toyota sales in the U.S. fell nearly 32 percent in May 2011 and Honda by 22.4 percent. Thus, both these automakers are about to put together a string of months that show industry-leading sales increases, but only because those sales are being compared to last summer's drought.

Germany is the only EU to show growth!

Germany, Europe's largest car market, has managed to buck the trend for falling new-car sales in Europe this year.

Quote:
In the first six months, the market grew 0.7 percent in comparison with a 20 percent decline in Italy and a 14 percent fall in France, according to the European industry organization ACEA, which predicts that car sales in the European Union will fall this year to the lowest level since 1995.

VW Passat 2012 most successful in the US market.

Quote:
Honda and Toyota's big gains are easy to explain. Just repeat the line we've been using all summer about these two Japanese giants enjoying the fruits of restored production capacity following last year's onslaught of natural disasters in their home region. Volkswagen's big jump, however, is harder to explain, and looks to be consolidated mostly in the Passat model line where sales jumped from just 314 last August (before the midsize sedan was redesigned) to 10,090 last month. Smaller sales gains from the Golf, Jetta, Beetle,Tiguan and Touareg also contributed.
