The global microchip shortage continues to impact new and used car sales, as production interruptions lower the new car and used car supply, forcing dealers to maintain tight inventory levels. Demand for new cars has continued to outpace supply, with new cars selling nearly a week faster than in June, while demand for used cars has plateaued as used cars are selling slightly slower over the same period.

Analyzing over one million new and used cars sold in July 2021, iSeeCars.com determined the new and used cars that were in the highest demand and disappeared the quickest from dealer lots. Here are the fastest-selling new and used cars by state:

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. Vehicle inventory is not expected to be replenished until the beginning of 2022, so consumers who are in the market for one of these fast sellers should act quickly when they see their desired car for sale. Consumers who have the option to wait may be able to find better new car incentives and lower used car prices once the market stabilizes.
