Why do US automakers continue to manufacture inefficient SUVs?

    Simply put, because consumers continue to buy them, but as the SUV sales decrease – as they have over the last two years – so will the manufacturing quotas. 2008 was a somewhat strong year for SUV sales, since the hybrid EVs had not yet become popular. 2009, however, showed a striking decline in sales of SUVs, as the EV became both an efficient alternative and a popular trend among car buyers. Unfortunately, this trend did not continue, as 2010 has already generated a large increase in SUV sales from 2009; approximately 22%. Certain models showed a much greater disparity, including mid-size SUVs (86%), small SUVs (53%) and luxury SUVs (22%).
