Chrysler recaptured minivan title

Despite numerous plant shutdowns and a brand-new Toyota Sienna and semi-new Kia Carnival, Chrysler managed to hold onto the minivan crown, though it was a somewhat pyrrhic victory.  With sales at just under 100,000, Chrysler held steady with 2021, but every competitor plummeted in sales.

The Sienna fell by 35%, despite a brand new all-hybrid lineup with excellent gas mileage that undercut the Pacifica Hybrid’s prices. Toyota only sold 69,751 Siennas. The Honda Odyssey continues its descent into the underworld, falling by a stunning 38% to 47,615 sales. Finally, Kia sold a mere 2,905 Sedonas and 16,801 Carnivals; the Carnival fell by 33% from 2021 sales. Kia sales overall were down by just 1% from last year; the Sportage had a remarkably good year with 125,245 sold (up by 32%) but that was their only truly major sales gain.
