A few bright spots amidst the bleak sales reports.

It's early July, which means car manufacturers are publishing their second-quarter sales figures. And the numbers across the board are, in a word, bleak.

The chip shortage and supply chain issues have seen companies struggling to build enough vehicles to meet demand. It's an ideal situation for car dealers, who are enjoying record profits as they mark up the prices of cars they do have and offer far fewer incentives.

But some cars have managed to avoid the malaise. Whether it's due to general availability, changes in the market, or manufacturers funneling every available chip into a profitable new vehicle, their sales have increased — when even stalwarts like the Ford F-150 are seeing double-digit declines.

Here are 10 cars that are selling well in 2022.
