Car search engine and automotive research firm iSeeCars.com has compiled a list of the 12 fastest-selling new cars during the pandemic.

The list is comprised mostly of SUVs that arrived on the market either this or last year, including the Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade. However, hybrid and electric vehicles are also having a moment, with the Honda CR-V Hybrid, Toyota RAV4 Hybrid, and Chevrolet Bolt EV all making an appearance as well.

The Bolt EV, which sits in seventh place, is also the only non-SUV in the compilation. However, iSeeCar’s list is topped by a different Chevy: the $19,000 Trailblazer subcompact SUV, which debuted with its 2021 model.

The Trailblazer sold, on average, within 19 days.

“Many of these fastest-selling vehicles are popular cars that are hard to find for reasons such as the effect of the pandemic on supply chains [or] they were produced in limited quantities,” SeeCars CEO Phong Ly said.

To compare, a new car took 96.9 days, on average, to sell amid the start and peak of the pandemic in the US, according to the study. Before the coronavirus started ravaging across the country, cars spent an average of 57.8 days on the market, according to data points taken from November 2019 to February 2020.

iSeeCars analyzed over 4.8 million cars from the 2019 to 2021 model years sold between March and June 2020 for the study, although low-model cars, heavy-duty vehicles, and vehicles that ceased to exist after the 2020 model year were excluded from the study.
