It's about the trend, not one month's statistics. One is going up while the other is going down.Manufacturers: "there isnt a market for manual cars"
Also manufacturers: "ELECTRIFY ALL THE THINGS"
This is why I hate the auto industry. All the positive press and "newness" yet similar sales are seen as an excuse to kill the 3 pedal.
And nothing is killing the manual transmission more than lack of demand. Automatics are good enough and cheap enough nowadays so there is little demand for the stick apart from the apparently 1% of enthusiasts.
