(iSeeCars) – The microchip shortage continues to impact car sales as production interruptions have lowered the supply of new and used cars. Demand for new and used cars slowed slightly in October, as elevated car prices may have deterred consumers from buying a car until prices stabilize. 

Analyzing over 250,000 new and used cars sold in October 2021, iSeeCars.com found that overall, the average new car takes 31.7 days to sell and the average used car takes 44.7 days to sell. Both new and used cars are selling slower than in September, where the average for new cars was 24.6 days and the average for used cars was 32.8 days.

  • The fastest-selling used car is a tie between the Hyundai Kona and the Mitsubishi Outlander in three states.
  • SUVs are the most represented vehicle type as the fastest-selling used car type in 26  states.
  • The fastest-selling used car across all states is a tie between the Hyundai Kona in Hawaii and the Lexus NX 300 in Alabama. Each took 8.1 days to sell. 

Buyers who are making a new or used car purchase might have difficulty finding these in-demand vehicles, and may end up paying a premium for them in the used car marketplace amid microchip-related inventory constraints. As demand continues to outpace supply for new cars, consumers should act quickly if they see their desired vehicle for sale, and buyers may have to be flexible on color and trim options for in-demand models.
