Trucks, SUVs again tops for Fastest Selling vehicles in El Paso

According to the new monthly report by iSeeCars, trucks and SUVs continue to dominate both new and used car markets in El Paso for the month of May.

“The microchip shortage continues to impact new and used car sales, with new car inventory decreasing by 15.7 percent and used car inventory decreasing by 2.1 percent in May over April, intensifying the already high demand for used cars and driving up prices,” said iSeeCars Executive Analyst Karl Brauer.

“For new cars, both higher priced full-size SUVs and alternative fuel vehicles continue to be in high demand, striking an interesting dichotomy between practical and not-so-practical consumers.”

Their report also found that new car inventory decreased by 15.7 percent in May compared to April, and used car prices increased by 6.3 percent.

Nationally, their analysis found the fastest-selling new car during the month of May was the Mercedes Benz G-Class, moving the Corvette to second place after four consecutive months as the fastest seller.

Newly released models, alternative fuel vehicles, and full-size SUVs are the most prevalent vehicles on the fastest-selling new car list. For used cars, the Mazda MX-5 Miata earns the top spot on a list dominated by sports cars and alternative fuel vehicles.

  • The Mercedes-Benz G-Class is the fastest-selling new vehicle, Chevrolet Corvette falls to #2 after four months at the top of the list
  • Fastest-selling new car list is a mix of two extremes: large gas guzzlers and alternative fuel vehicles, which include the newly released Volkswagen ID.4 and Hyundai Tucson Hybrid
  • Sporty and hybrid/electric vehicles dominate fastest-selling used car list
  • Used car prices up 6.3 percent in May over April

“Both new and used cars are selling faster than in April, when the average new car took 48.3 days to sell and the average used car took 37.4 days,” researchers added.

To determine the fastest-selling cars in El Paso, iSeeCars analyzed 1.3 million new and used car sales in May 2021.  The full study can be read by clicking here.
