    170 ish days of supply of Camaro’s and Corvette’s is a lot but how much of that can be blamed on winter? Probably not the most common car people are shopping for at this time of year.
    Also 84 day supply of Malibu’s is probably a lot more actual cars than 170 day supply of Corvette’s, but it’s still an important indicator.
    FCA shifters- usually big problems aren’t caused by one issue, it’s usually a series of mistakes or design flaws. A poorly thought out shifter run by less than perfect humans …..

    FCA seems to be leading the way in larger Hybrid / EVs. When is GM going to test market a Volt type CUV or SUV EV? I see a lot of potential in GM offering the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain with Volt drive systems. The Bolt will probably do well against the Honda Fit and HR-V as well as others as long as government credits are available. Consumers are looking for more interior space and a higher driving position. The same could be said towards Nissan and the Leaf.

    OEM need to take familiar models and offer Hybrid / EV variants that are realistic to own and operate in the real world. The Ford C-Max EV was a feeble attempt. If OEMs can not get the formula correct Tesla will continue to see grow especially when the Model # is ready for prime time.

  3. Lex Says:

    What is the true number of vehicles seating on dealers lots by make and model? What is the industry standard in determining the number of “Days” of supply are available on dealers lots?

    I look for electric cars to do well with a new administration that puts money ahead of people. Gas is already starting to go up. Expected to hit $3 a gal by end of next year.

  5. Joe Says:

    No Buick’s were listed on the days supply chart. either they were left out intentionally or Kudos to the Buick team for moving the metal.

  6. George Ricci Says:

    This is only the beginning of fallout with the move away from the mechanical shifters to the new electronic shifters. Not only does the design have to be forgiving (less likely for the user to make a mistake), it has to be intuitive for the user. Clearly some of the new shifter designs are not intuitive at all as they move away from the familiar PRND design.
