Looking at individual brands, Porsche saw an impressive sales gain, as did Mitsubishi and Mini. Jeep and GMC, which rely on truck-based lineups, sold very well in April, and Subaru once again managed to post a noteworthy gain, making it 41 straight months of sales increases, though that's still a bit behind FCA's 61 consecutive months.
A few more noteworthy data points:
- The seasonally adjusted annual rate for 2015 sits at 16.52 million, which is high, but short of analyst predictions.
- BMW, Mercedes and Lexus continue to fight for the luxury sales crown, with M-B earning the edge in April.
- There were 26 sales days in April of 2015, which matched that of the same month in 2014.
