Car and Light Truck Retail Sales Results For First Half Of 2010

The most recent data allows us to see just how well each of the manufacturers are doing this year selling vehicles. While it hasn’t been a great year so far for automotive manufacturers, it certainly could have been much worse, because the totals are outpacing 2009’s dismal results.

There are no surprises here. Toyota is still feeling the effects of its knuckleheaded problem response model. Volvo and Saab are both reeling from corporate ownership issues. Porsche finally is realizing that there’s a limited number of people interested in its Cayenne SUV. As for the revolutionary Smart car, it appears consumers have finally come to the same conclusion I did years ago: it’s an image vehicle rather than a serious automotive product for the American market.

Joe Isuzu is dead… and if Mitsubishi doesn’t pick things up pronto, they’ll be next!
