what a bunch of yahoos who wrote that article lol
seriously, throwing out numbers like that sugarcoating it, pretty pathetic.
they say 76% july(9,499) increase compared to what? june 2011? or july last year?
if total for first 7 months is 63,869 then monthy average is still only 9,124/month.
i don't know about you but 300+ units per month is not even worth mentioning as an increase in sales, that's what, 3% over annual monthly average ;p
now take into account that it's hard to compare sales of last year outgoing model when average consumer does know new model is coming and wait for purchase. not fair comparison by a long shot.
seems like steady selling to me...
