Report Updated: With June 2019 Data on July 2nd 2019
The minivan segment is not doing very well when you look at sales for the month of June or the year so far. For the month, the segment was down roughly 2,000 units. When you look YTD, the segment was down roughly 36,000 units.
While the monthly sales figures showed a couple of models saw sales increases over this time last year, when you look YTD, you’ll see that every model sold dropped in sales. That doesn’t bode well for the rest of the year.
Leading the pack was the Dodge Grand Caravan with a sales increase of about 9 percent. The Toyota Sienna was the only other model that saw a sales bump. It came in third with the Honda Odyssey separating the Toyota and the Dodge. Honda’s minivan saw a sales decrease of around 3 percent.
With more and more people turning to three-row SUVs and crossovers, it seems the minivan is falling by the wayside, which is a shame because they’re so much more practical than an SUV or crossover.
