Pickups and SUVs are what Americans bought in April 2015 after dealing with another long cold winter. So it’s no surprise that eighteen of the twenty three fastest selling vehicles were trucks and SUVs. However, it’s not the vehicle that took the number one spot.
Back in the day, the station wagon was a huge seller with families, but since the introduction of the SUV about twenty five years ago, the wagon has faded away from the automotive sales world.
The Volkswagen Golf SportWagen may be the indicator Americans would like their wagons back. The new Golf SportWagen tops the fastest-selling list at number one, sticking around on a dealers lot for only nine days before someone takes it home.
Of the twenty three new cars on the list, the average days a vehicle stays on a dealer’s lot until a car buyer signed the contract and took delivery is only 9.5 days. What this information tells you is these vehicles are extremely popular and it may be difficult to negotiate with a dealer on the price.
The fastest-selling car list is formulated by the average number of days it to sell a vehicle from the day it hits the dealers lot to the time a buyer signs the final paperwork (this is not a days-in-inventory list). There are only 2015 and 2016 vehicles on the list and high-performance or limited edition models have been excluded.
