I believe GM has stated that it estimates Volt sales at 2,500 for month and Cadillac XTS sales of 2,000. There's that magical 2,000 monthly sales figure again that Lincoln can't seem to mount with the majority of its lineup save MKZ. :beatdeadhorse:

From the AP:

Customers likely found good deals on 2012 models last month, especially for leases and pickup trucks. Chrysler is offering $4,289 in discounts on the Ram 1500, Edmunds said. Also, Honda raised its incentives 27 percent in August from July to an average of $1,666 per vehicle.

GM is saying that Chevy passenger vehicle sales are up 25% for August with Volt, Cruze, Sonic, and Spark enjoying record August sales. Of course Sonic and Spark were not in existence last August. Seems Dodge Dart sales are on very light side considering vehicle has been out for a few months and ramp up must be close to healthy.

Per the press release, still ramping up:

...the all-new Dodge Dart compact sedan soared 294 percent in its third month of sales. As Dart production continues to ramp up in the Belvidere, Ill. assembly plant, a full, multifaceted marketing campaign will launch this month...

The Dart's not doing too badly. There's only 7,000 in inventory and the average stay at a Dodge dealer is 8 days (these facts from Auto News).

Did anyone really expect them to? They were incrementally improved, but not vastly in either case.

And is it too soon to start rubbing the new Escape's success in certain people's faces? :P

Once then new MKZ rolls in, those sales could go even higher..

A healthy portion of crow and suitable condiments is now ready to be served....girl's car indeed.
You watch that baby take off when incentives and attractive leasing starts, ford will be selling them night and day..

Also, Ford delivered just under a combined 2,000 PI and PI Utes last Month, looks like PDs are coming on board..

Good to see they were able to move so many of the new Escapes so quickly, typically Ford struggles with inventory at launch. Maybe there won't be that nasty market-share plunge afterall.

Or maybe no sweetheart deals for the Malibu, so the buyers jumped to the Cruze (lower price)?

Does anybody know if the MKT Town Car is being sold now, and if so would it appear on the charts as "Town Car" or "MKT Town Car"?

At least locally, there are plenty of sweetheart deals on 2012 Malibus. A coworker just got a 2012 LTZ for $16k after rebates and GM card top off.

Don't know if they'll be separated. It's not quite the same distinction as there is between something like the Taurus and PI.
