Your predictions for the US auto market and industry for 2013
It looks like Pontiac, Saturn, Saab, and Hummer will probably be gone. Will others be added to the list?
What's your guess for market share for the other major players?
Here are my guesses. And they are that, totally guesses. I know I could be way off...(In parentheses I have each company's 2009 YTD market share according to the WSJ.)
Re-organized GM hangs on to c.14% of the market. (c. 19.1% in 2009 so far ytd)
Ford hangs on to c. 12 (14.6% in 2009)
Chrysler more or less vanishes, although maybe sells
some trendy Fiats for 3 percent of the market. (9.4% in 2009)
Toyota might be the biggest player, at c. 20% (16.1 in 2009)
Honda about where GM is at c.14% (11% in 09)
Nissan 9% (7.3% now)
Hyundai 6% (4.3)
VW 6% (3.5)
Kia 4% (3.1)
Mazda 3% (2.3)
Subaru 3% (1.9)
BMW 3% (1.9)
MB 3% (1.8)
I think that equals 97%, with the remainder going to Tato, Volvo, or whatever other new or existing niche players you could name.....
