The headlines at the start of every month often herald the models that top the sales charts. Nameplates such as Ford F-series, Toyota Camry and Corolla, and Honda Accord consistently lead the pack, with hundreds of thousands of units being sold every year.
We rarely hear about the cars at the other end of the spectrum, however. In 2011, we took a look back at 2010 sales figures and told you which cars sold in the lowest numbers — fewer than 3000 units. Now that the 2012 sales numbers are in, we’ve once again rounded up the lowest-selling nameplates, those that sold less than 3000 units. We’ve excluded exotics that rarely sell more than a few hundred in a year; models that bit the dust mid-year and, therefore, didn’t have a full calendar year of sales; and cars that were discontinued prior to the 2012 calendar year but were still on dealership lots.
