March 2014 Auto Sales: Winners and Losers

Loser - Smart -17 Percent

It’s probably no surprise to see that the Smart brand continues to struggle in the U.S., with sales continuing to drop throughout the year. Last month, only 775 new Smart owners drove off dealership lots compared to 929 last year, marking a 17-percent decrease. There’s a little bit of a bright light however as the brand has seen its sales increase two percent compared to last year (2,193 units vs. 2,237 units) but it’s likely to falter as the months go on.
