We all know that Lincoln has been on the comeback trail for a while, and the good news is that they are succeeding. Lincoln's 2015 June sales were the best June sales month that the brand has had since 2007, and sales for the brand are up on the whole for 2015 when compared to the same point last year.
Lincoln spokesperson Sam Locricchio says that the Lincoln MKC has been a principal reason for Lincoln's recent sales increases. Here's some of the details on the MKC's sales numbers before telling you more about how the brand is doing on the whole.
Last June, Lincoln sold 684 MKCs. This June Lincoln saw an increase of 184.6% -- that makes for a total sales volume of 1,947 units for June 2015. Looking at the year up to this point, Lincoln has sold 11,332 MKCs. That number completely dwarfs last year's MKC sales up to June, which stood at 1,361. So for the year through June, the MKC has seen a growth of 732.6% over last year. That's remarkable!
Overall Lincoln sales for the year to June have increased by 5.8%. Most models in the lineup actually had sales decline when compared to last year's sales up to June. The exceptions are the MKC, and also the Navigator which saw sales increase by 59.8% from 2014 to 2015. Sales rose from 3,653 units in 2014 to 5,839 in 2015.
So to put a bookend on this post, Lincoln sales for 2015 up until June stand at 47,112 compared to 44,522 for the same period last year.
