Toyota Camry Will Be Top Online Seller in 2011

An online car shopping service says, based on its research, the Toyota Camry will be the top online seller in 2011. The Ford Fusion generates the second most interest among online shoppers.

These are the Top 5 vehicles that will be shopped online:

  • Toyota Camry
  • Ford Fusion
  • Honda Odyssey
  • Honda CR-V
  • Nissan Altima

"These results would certainly seem to indicate that Toyota has recovered from any hangover generated by the recalls of 2010," says Peter Chiu, Vice President of Product Management for CarWoo!."Ford also seems to be regaining its stature as a highly respected and innovative US manufacturer. While not especially surprising, these results should help car buyers understand the supply-demand nature of the marketplace in which they are shopping."

San Francisco based CarWoo! is an online service and marketplace through which dealers are connected with anonymous buyers, extend offers and sell vehicles. Buyers are charged $50 to access this marketplace while access is free to dealers. Buyers receive multiple offers while retaining their privacy and dealers obtain referrals for buyers that fall outside of the traditional automotive lead system.

By the way, Chiu is challenging readers of his website to come up with more accurate predictions. “I’m so confident in this prediction that I’ll make a bet with any reader of this blog. If, at the end of 2011, my prediction on the top 5 selling cars of 2011 isn’t true I’ll send out some sweet CarWoo! schwag to anyone who has a more accurate guess. All you have to do is post your own prediction for the top 5 selling cars of 2011 (it doesn’t have to be in order) and we’ll contact you in 1 year and see who was right and who was wrong.
