Of the nearly 188,000 new vehicles sold in Minnesota last year, over 15 percent were Chevys. The market share of total Minnesota vehicle registrations found:

  • Chevrolet: 15.3%
  • Ford: 12.2%
  • Toyota: 10.2%
  • Honda: 8.6%
  • Subaru: 6.7%
  • Hyundai: 5.1%
  • GMC: 5.0%
  • Jeep: 4.7%
  • Kia: 4.2%
  • Ram: 3.9%

Overall, new vehicle sales were up 11.5% from 2022.

Electric vehicles were hot sellers, with nearly 5,000 new Teslas hitting the road, up 40% from 2022. Newcomer Rivian sold 538 new vehicles, a 166% increase over 2022 sales.

Meanwhile, car sales continue to decline. In 2011, 42% of vehicle sales were cars. Last year, car sales accounted for a little more than one in every ten deals.

Officials believe the growth in vehicle sales is due in large part to dealerships catching up on supply after the COVID-19 pandemic.
