2011 Toyota Sienna SE: Minivan Sales Champ
January 06, 2012
We were performance testing a few minivans this week and started discussing sales numbers. Brent recently polled the child-tethered staff here on which van they would buy.
But which vans did the regular John/Joan Citizen buy in 2011? Data from Edmunds' crack Pricing and Analysis team shows that the Toyota Sienna was the 2011 minivan sales champ.
The Honda Odyssey comes in 3rd, but with only 2% of its sales coming from fleets (rental cars, business, and government sales.) The second place Dodge Caravan is the polar opposite,with an astounding 63% of its sales to fleets.
Amazingly, the VW Routan outsold the new Nissan Quest! (although the Quest was introduced in Feb for 11 months of sales figures -- still...)
