The Buffalo News - - BUSINESS - By Matt Glynn

West Herr Au­to­mo­tive Group ranked No. 25 in the coun­try based on its sales of new re­tail ve­hi­cles in 2018, ac­cord­ing to Au­to­mo­tive News.

Or­chard Park-based West Herr sold 29,272 new re­tail ve­hi­cles last year, an av­er­age of nearly 563 a week across 22 deal­er­ships, ac­cord­ing to the pub­li­ca­tion’s sta­tis­tics. But its to­tal was down 5.3 per­cent from 2017, caus­ing its rank­ing to dip from No. 22 the year be­fore.

West Herr had $2.1 bil­lion in rev­enue last year across all of its de­part­ments, and sold a to­tal of 75,266 ve­hi­cles in 2018, in­clud­ing used, fleet and whole­sale ve­hi­cles, Au­to­mo­tive News said.

The pub­li­ca­tion each year ranks the top 150 deal­er­ships in the coun­try. Two other dealer groups with a lo­cal pres­ence made the list.

Lithia Mo­tors, which owns Ray Laks Honda and Acura, was No. 3. The Med­ford, Ore.-based dealer group sold 184,601 new re­tail units at 181 deal­er­ships. Its rank­ing moved up from No. 4 the year be­fore.

Lia Auto Group, which owns Lia Honda in Clarence, was No. 55. The Al­bany-based group sold 18,333 new re­tail units at 21 deal­er­ships last year, a de­crease of 4.5 per­cent. Its rank­ing dropped from No. 48 in 2018.
