Amazingly, that subcompact luxury crossover is red hot these days and Buick can’t build enough of them to satisfy demand. A new report is claiming that Buick sold a total of 12,252 Encores in the first six months since it first went on sale in January. That’s literally "triple or quadruple" what Buick initially predicted. By the end of last month, a grand total of 15,428 units were sold. Yep, GM totally underestimated US demand for the thing. And now there’s an Encore shortage. Assembled in South Korea, production of the Encore will undoubtedly now move into overdrive, especially since the Audi Q3
and Mercedes GLA
are set to arrive soon.
