2011 Hyundai Elantra – Click above for high-res image gallery

Car sales fell for the first time in eight months in May. According to Kicking Tires, it took dealers 54 days to move a brand-new vehicle off their lots compared to 48 days in April, thanks in part to steep fuel costs, supply issues due to the earthquake and tsunami tragedies in Japan and skimpy incentives.

But the news isn't all bad. A few star models bucked the trend, including the 2012 Hyundai Elantra. The compact popped off of dealer lots in just three days, effectively cinching the title as the quickest-selling model of May. In fact, the 2011 Elantra landed itself in second place by only lingering 7 days on the lot.

Kicking Tires points out that the Chrysler 200 is also beating the average. The Sebring successor took 19 days on average to find a new home.

Meanwhile, the 2011 Jaguar XKR found itself at the very bottom of the list. The high-power coupe languishes on showrooms for an average of 212 days. The Infiniti M56 is next up from the basement. The sedan takes 173 days to sell on average. Head over to Kicking Tires for a closer look.

      This report is going to be warped for the vehicles with the lowest day supply because of the earthquake's effect on the Japanese manufacturers and on any manufacturer that relies on Japanese-made parts. When the Lexus HS is high on the list despite selling only 200-some copies last month, you know the report at the small end doesn't show "hot sellers" so much as how the manufacturers are managing inventory/supply issues. Consistently appearing on the other end, however, is somewhat indicative of slow-sellers, however.

        I'm curious about this as well. I've only seen two driving around, but there at least 15 or 20 sitting at a dealership I pass frequently. I really hope it's doing well because I want more cars like it out there.

      Wow that list has a bunch of Fords on it, Explorer, Focus, Mustang, Fusion Hybrid... I would figure the first 2 because they were new, I guess the Hybrid because of high gas prices, and the Mustang because of the new engines have kept it fresh.

      M56 is going to be a good bargain in a couple years just like the M45 before it.

      Wow! Seriously, Autoblog. Can you be any more blatent in your pro-Hyundai reporting? You might as well change the name of the website to Hyundaiblog.com... LOL

        I don't see your point? The problem is Hyundai is kicking butt and taking plenty of names, as being stated time and again by everyone in the automotive industry. Besides, the ads right now on the page are Mazda3, Chrysler, Honda - no Hyundai ads...so I would think Autoblog would be screwed with the lack of backing from Hyundai.

          The difference is that when autoblog reports Hyundai news it sounds exactly like the type of fluff you'd find on hyundainews.com...otherwise known as the official media site of Hyundai. For example, the best selling compact and midsize sedans in the U.S. last month were the Chevy Cruze and Chevy Malibu respectively. When is the last time GM has had the best selling midsize and compact sedans? 1985? Not a peep from Autoblog. Yet, a few days prior to the numbers being released, Autoblog posted a "news story" about how Hyundai and Kia combined could possibly take the #3 spot in sales. (Which, btw never panned out, as GM, Ford, Chrysler and Toyota all outsold the two combined.) Autoblog does stuff like that ALL the time. Often they are subtle wih their pro-Hyundai bias, but every now and then they cram it down our throats. If Hyundai was the "conservative politics" of the automotive world, Autoblog would be the Fox News.;)

        The fact you're STILL calling it "VaporVolt" despite the fact that the car is in production and being sold should clue enough people in that you're an idiot with a pointless axe to grind, but the whole "snuze" thing really brings out your maturity.

        You're an idiot. If you've even sat in all three of those cars (which I doubt), you would realize that all three of them are good vehicles, not just the ford and hyundai.

        Did GM kill your dog or something? GM has been selling Cruzes like hotcakes. They are selling close to how many they are able to make every month. It's so funny that you're that butthurt about GM that you have to concoct lies about them.

      If hyundai really wants to move those puppies off the lot they need to add a base 2.0 8 valve engine with 115hp and rear drum brakes. ;)

      Good to see Chrysler's hard work on the 200 paying off and being recognized by the public.

      I was shopping for the new Elantra 3 months ago.. They were nowhere to be found... when I went to the dealership that actually had them, there were 5 different customers trying to make a deal (and there were only 3 of them) .... I got a little impulsive there so I kinda didn't get a good deal on my trade in value :( so far I'm very satisfied with my red hot 2011 Elantra. It's the least powerful one I've owned but it packs so much for the price and it does everything well enough.
