Two fastest selling cars in April were a plug-in hybrid Jeep and the C8 Corvette
The C8 and Jeep are practically selling themselves, but how long do they really sit on the lot?
The C8 Corvette is fast; it's almost fast enough for Dom to accept it as payment for the car you destroyed; it's even breathing down the neck of needing a roll cage for legal drag strip shenanigans. Its athletic prowess allows it to clock the quarter-mile in 11.3 seconds at 121 miles per hour which, is far faster than most people can say, 'Red lorry, yellow lorry ' ten times. Don't believe me? Try doing it without mistakes (or if you're a tongue twister perfectionist, try 'Toy Boat' next...)
Now that you're clearly tongue-tied, we need to talk about the C8 Corvette's most impressive metric; the amount of time it takes to sell on a dealer's lot. It sells in a spectacularly fast 9.2 days! It's the quickest selling vehicle and has been for the last three months, according to our friends at Motor1.com. The Corvette officially leaves a dealer's lot quicker than its quarter-mile (if each second was a day).
Had we been talking about this last month, I'd have probably said, 'There is no way the C8 could sell faster,' and I'd be eating my words. It was selling only a mere 4 days slower in February than the most recent sales data. Even at 13 days being idle on a lot is impressive. That's less than it takes to get your next paycheck for the down payment... I'm betting few people are getting a one-day cash advance as this is no cheap motor - the average price being $87,390.
Even more impressive (arguably) is the speed of the Jeep Wrangler 4xe sales speed. It's selling in a blindingly quick 10.5 days. Think about that for a moment. The first hybrid Jeep is selling nearly as quickly as one of the most hyped sports cars on the market. It goes to prove even the most loyal and stalwart Jeep fans are willing to give technology a chance - or maybe the Jeep crew is a bit more green-minded than we ever thought? Twenty-one miles of silent, electric rock crawling does sound a bit intriguing...
