October 2010 Auto Sales

#Ford, #Ford

MITSUBISHI +32%
The Endeavor (+188%) and Outlander (+71%) racked up the big percentage increases, but volume-wise, the gains for the Galant (+23%) and the Lancer (+28%) were just as significant. What was not significant -- at least not yet -- was the Outlander Sport, of which only 30 copies were sold in its initial month.

JAGUAR LAND-ROVER +40%
Jaguar Land Rover's 40 percent surge allowed it to surpass Volvo in sales this month.
Jaguar +47%
The XJ continues to look great compared to last year, but sales then were only in the double digits. Still, the increase was enough to drive a healthy spike for Jaguar overall.
Land Rover +37%
Both the LR4 and the LR2 doubled their year-ago figures, as all four models were ahead of last year.

VOLVO -10%
Volvo suffered another decline this month, and as a result, slipped below Jaguar Land Rover in the rankings. The new S60 is helping a bit, but it can't make up for declines in sales of the S40, C30, and V50.

PORSCHE +61%
Again this month, the non-sports-car Porsches -- the redesigned Cayenne and the Panamera -- gave the brand its big boost.

SUZUKI +17%
Finally some good news for Suzuki, which has suffered a string of down months this year.

SAAB +44%
Saab did way better this October than in 2010, when it was a ward of General Motors. But its sales are still tiny (741 units) and were off quite a bit from last month's total.
