Surge in the African-American Auto Market in 2011

Surge in the African-American Auto Market in 2011

Toyota is currently the only top brand among African-Americans, with fifteen percent of the new-vehicle marketplace. It is based on marketing and information analysts at Polk, who listed Chevrolet, Ford, Nissan, and Honda as runners up, each with further than ten percent of the market.

although Polk calls the 'non-ethnic' vehicle market improved by just 6.8 percent in 2010 from a year prior, African-Americans bought almost 69 percent more new cars in 2010 than they did in 2009. In general registrations of new-vehicle were also in front of the market at huge, with an 11.5-percent increase for the group. It's as well the fastest rising individual group of the United States population.

Buick made the most important gains with African Americans in the marketplace, for 2010, earns about 72-percent extra new-car registrations with this consumer segment in 2010. Hyundai added about 53 percent, while Cadillac, Kia, Infiniti, GMC, Audi and Subaru each gained more than 25 percent.

Toyota, when dealing with its recalls about accelerator-related in 2010, provides some special strong incentives, with financing of zero-percent, free maintenance, and attractive leasing deals Hyundai also presented its Hyundai Assurance plan, which allows buyers to give back their car—in most instances, without penalty—if they lost their job.

Land Rover, Acura, BMW and Mercedes are falling last with this segment and not increased rapidly as the general market; they might be doing more to attract rich African-Americans.
