Movers and Losers: June 2010

Summer is here and folks are snapping up convertibles. Both the affordable 2011 Ford Mustang droptop and the loftier Mercedes-Benz E350 Cabriolet are among June’s fastest sellers. If you’re looking for a good deal on a convertible, the 2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata might be worth checking out as it makes our Picks’ list at 79 days. The average number of days it took to sell a new 2010 or 2011 in June was 55 days, up significantly from May’s 50 days.

As the 2011 model year spreads to more manufacturers, 2011 models makeup most of the list. However, many of the Movers aren’t just there because of a scarcity of supply. The Jaguar XJ and BMW 5 Series have been completely redesigned, while two trim levels are listed below, other versions also sold quickly — just not in a high enough volume to meet our criteria.

You can check out the full lists and our criteria below.

About the Lists
The Movers and Losers list reports the average number of days it takes to sell models from the day they arrive on the lot until the final paperwork is signed by a buyer. This is not a days-of-inventory list like you may find on other sites. We’re now focusing on only the 2010 and 2011 model years.

For Movers, we only list vehicles that pass a certain threshold of sales in order to weed out limited editions, ultra-high performance cars and others that might skew the numbers or otherwise inaccurately portray popularity. For Losers, we have removed any threshold to now reflect phased-out models because many shoppers might be looking for an outgoing model year to match with a greater incentive.
