I feel that BMW isn't alone in this. America doesn't like wagons, it wants its big ass SUV's and crossovers.

It appears you looked at the wrong line item. Car sales are ~220k for the year while truck sales are ~90k.

Is there a way to look at specific models? For example 320 v 328 v 335?
Thanks.

You are correct, that's what I get for not paying attention.

X2, too close in price and performance with the sedan being easier to haul other people. I don't see myself buying a coupe version when there is a sedan available and only buying a coupe as my fun weekend car.

I think this is more of a US market problem than a BMW problem. Honda/MB/Audi/Volvo/BMW/Toyota tried to sell wagons only to switch to sedans and CUV/SUV's. A few are still left.

Sad to see both i3 and i8 seeing declines vs. prior year. However, not surprising given the prices of both cars. My dealer still has 2014 for sale :

The i3 is so hideous and the i8 is just so out of reach for the average consumer.

I would love an electric F30!
