The Ford Edge and Nissan Versa are just two of the many vehicles expected to sell at least 100,000 units by the end of this year, according to a recent report.
In fact, the number of vehicles heading toward 100,000-unit plus sales this year may be up as much as 39.1 percent over 2009, to 32 vehicles, according to Ward’s Auto.
The Ford F-Series and Chevrolet Silverado trucks have already hit 100,000 units. The new entries on the 100,000-unit list span the industry, from subcompact hatchbacks to full-size vans.
The Nissan Versa and Mazda3 are new vehicles to earn this arbitrary distinction while a number of crossovers are also included.
The Chevrolet Equinox, Ford Edge, and Honda Pilot will reach 100,000 sales, not to mention the Chevrolet Traverse and Kia Sorento.
Chrysler’s Town & Country minivan — redesigned for 2011 — may get to 100,000 units in sales as well. The Dodge Grand Caravan, Ward’s Auto says, is within range of hitting 100,000 units, too.
Along with the Ford Econoline full-size vans, another important consideration for all these vehicles is not just how many units sold but the level of incentives on each unit.
As the industry slowly trends upward, what other vehicles do you expect to sell 100,000 or more units in a year?
