In the U.S. auto sales list in October, Tesla did not enter the top five, and Corolla fell to tenth place
China's auto market has released the list of car sales in October, with a total sales of about 2.03 million units, while the United States on the other side of the ocean has also released car sales in October, with a total sales of about 1.21 million units, less than 60% of the Chinese market.
According to the best-selling model sales list, we can see that the American car market and the Chinese car market are very different, electric vehicles and even hybrids, do not occupy the mainstream in the United States, let's take a look at the top ten best-selling cars in the American car market. Although the exact data is not available, the Ford F series, which ranked first, can confirm that it has monthly sales of 53,509 units.
1. Ford F Series (5.1% y/y)
3. Chevrolet Sorod (down 12.0%)
4. Ram Ram皮卡(下降0.7%)%
5. Honda CR-V (53.0% increase)
6. Tesla Model Y (up 55.5%)
7. Toyota Camry (down 12.9%)
9. Nissan Rogue (up 14.3%)
10. Toyota Corolla (up 36.7%)
It can be seen from the list of U.S. car sales that the United States is indeed a vast area and people like to drive big cars, and they don't care about fuel consumption, only 240,000 of the more than one million sold in October are sedan models, and the rest are pickup trucks or light truck models.
Japanese cars still occupy an important position in the U.S. market, which has a lot to do with the fuel-efficient and durable operation of Japanese cars, although Americans like big cars, but there are also many immigrants who prefer Toyota, especially cars like Toyota Corolla and Camry, which have always been the favorite brands of outsiders.
As for Tesla, as a local electric brand in the United States, and the only car brand that can gain a foothold in the top 10 on the model list, the Model Y seems to be not only selling well in China, but also selling well in the United States.
As the world's best-selling model Corolla, this time in October in the United States sales list was at the bottom, which shows that Corolla after so many years of development has begun to show signs of fatigue, not only in the United States, even in the Chinese market, Corolla has fallen to the 8th place of compact cars, reading sales of 13,276 units, meet Lavida, Sylphy and BYD Qin, you know, in the past, Corolla's sales have been in the top five or even the top three.
Toyota's sluggish performance in the Chinese market has a lot to do with the rise of BYD, people used to buy Toyota to save money, for cost performance, but now Toyota's price is not cost-effective compared to many domestic cars.
In terms of car cost, a number of small electric vehicles make Japanese cars have no advantage at all. It has to be said that new energy vehicles in China's auto market are overtaking in corners, and if Toyota can't come up with its own electric vehicle products to look competitive, it may only be a matter of time before it is marginalized.
Especially as young people slowly become the main consumer group in the automobile market, many people do not care about joint venture brands at all, but prefer to buy domestic new energy vehicles. At the moment when this consumption concept has changed dramatically, Toyota can only adapt to the market if it wants to maintain its sales, rather than let the market adapt to Toyota. Times have changed, and now it is no longer a seller's market, but a buyer's market, and those so-called mark-up models have finally ushered in the end. If you want to cut leeks in the Chinese market, it's difficult!
