      Chevy Aveo annual U.S. sales '03-'09 (take a guess for 2009)

      I found some sales figures from GM. Anyone want to take a guess how many new Aveos were sold in the States last year (2009)?

      I'll post the answer later on.

      Re: Guess the 2009 annual sales of the Aveo in the U.S.

      Woo, lots of interest in this one!

      Here are the numbers (US only)...

      • 2009 sales: 44,739 (38,516 Aveos + 6,223 G3/Waves) ... yay recession = [/*:m8fq30n6]
      • 2008 sales: 55,360 [/*:m8fq30n6]
      • 2007 sales: 67,028[/*:m8fq30n6]
      • 2006 sales: 58,244[/*:m8fq30n6]
      • 2005 sales: 68,085[/*:m8fq30n6]
      • 2004 sales: 56,642[/*:m8fq30n6]
      • 2003 sales: 5,677 (Aveo went on sale in '03 as an '04 model)[/*:m8fq30n6]
      • Total sales: 355,775[/*:m8fq30n6]


      Source: General Motors: Investors: Sales and Production Reports: Historical Sales

      Some calcs...
      • Average annual sales: 59,296 (counting end of 2003 + 2004 as one year)[/*:m8fq30n6]
      • Average montly sales: 4941 [/*:m8fq30n6]



      I tried finding Canadian figures, but the ones I found weren't broken down by model like the US ones are. They just talk about percentages (sales were up X% over last year, blah blah).

      EDIT: found some Canadian figures, for a couple of years anyway...



      That puts the US/Canadian car buying pattern into focus. If sales of the car were equal on a per capita basis in 2006, Canadians would have bought about 10% as many Aveos as Americans do, or about 5,800. But they bought more than 3x that number.

      Wow. That's pretty amazing.

      Do you think it's amazing low? Or amazing high?

      Hahaha it's a mix of both. If you consider that the Canadian population is 10x less than that of the USA... means about only 36 000 units were sold in Canada... But I don't think that's representative. Also the Aveo is sold pretty much everywhere World Wide... which means GM Daewoo has to be turning a lot of these shoe boxes everyday.

      You're right - it's not representative. I found 2 years' worth of Canadian Aveo/Wave sales stats and updated post #2.

      It shows that per capita, Canadians buy about 3 times more Aveos/Waves/G3s than Americans.
