"It's product, product, product on one side, and a lack of strong competing models on the other,'' said Eric Noble, president of Car Lab, a consulting firm in Orange, California. Asian brands "have been setting the pace on the passenger-car side, and now they're starting to set the pace'' in light trucks.

SVT4ME Well, for the Japanese version of the "Big Three" anyway - Toyota, Honda, and Nissan. Some of the other Japanese companies aren't selling too well. In spite of the success of the Evo, Mitsubishi sales look like they are seriously drying up (although I don't have sales figures from the past to compare that to).

April 2005 U.S. Auto Sales Scorecard

April 2005 U.S. Auto Sales Scorecard

This table aggregated by the AP compares sales in April 2005 with sales in April 2004 and year-to-date totals for the two years. Light trucks include pickups, vans, minivans and sport utility vehicles.

Results for General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co. and DaimlerChrysler AG do not include U.S. sales of their European brands: Saab, Jaguar, Land Rover, Volvo and Mercedes-Benz.

Percentages are based on the daily sales rate; there were 27 sales days last month and 26 sales days in April 2004, and 102 sales days for the first four months of 2005 and for the same period a year ago.
