Through three months of 2013, the American automaker has moved a total of 580,917 vehicles making it the top sold auto brand so far in 2013. Coming in second for March 2013 sales was Toyota with 175,720 units sold. Rounding off the top five was Chevrolet (173,859), Nissan (126,623), and Honda (121,938).

The bottom of the list is filled with luxury automakers such as Bentley (206) and Maserati (218), which aren’t high-volume brands to begin with. As for mainstream brands that struggled last month, MINI was 26th place with 6,071 units sold while Fiat moved 3,807 vehicles landing it in 30th. Mitsubishi continues to struggle in America, selling only 5,286 vehicles last month (28th place) while Scion sold 6,432 units – good enough for 25th place.
