This link is for a short article at tellmenews.com.

Here's an extract:
"A survey conducted by Edmunds.com revealed that when compared to other carmakers, Honda relies the least on fleet sales to car rental chains. The automotive site noted that roughly 25 percent of all midsize cars go to bulk buyers or car rental fleets; in comparing two popular midsize options in 2012, 2.6 percent of all Accords sold went to bulk buyers between January and July 2012, as opposed to 33 percent for the Nissan Altima. More than a third of all Ford Fusions (37.9 percent), Chevrolet Malibus (39.9 percent) and Chrysler 200s (41.6 percent) were sold to fleets. The fleet market share rose to over 50 percent for two vehicles – the Dodge Avenger (58.7 percent) and Mazda6 (68 percent)."

I'm surprised that the Mazda6 share is so high (I've never seen one in any of the rental lots at the airport here)
I'm also surprised that the Accord's share is more than 0%.
I thought Honda never did bulk sales...

I saw a new 2012 Civic in National Rental Car service in Albuquerque, last week.

The percentage of the Mazda might look terrible high on accpount also on the relatively lower sales volume it has?

I am surprised the Camry is not mentioned at all...

And I do wonder were those 2.6% of Accords went (would large companies buying cars for their employees also be considered fleet buyers? Maybe this is where they are going?

The article also mentions how youger buyers are a lot more reluctant than us (old folk) to buy a car (long term commitment anxiety) since they came into the market in the current economy.

A bulk sale does not mean rental fleet. Could be to corporations, agencies etc. Anyhow a low 2.6% will not have a bad influence on the used market value. When 1/3 of the sales or more goes to fleet then the market will be "flooded" with used cars when the rental customers get rid of them. This tend to drive used car price down, good for used car buyers, however bad for the retail owners of the same cars.

I believe employee purchases through the company are considered Fleet Sales.
