USA Cars sales in November ford-explorer_xlt_sport_appearance_package-2017

USA Cars sales in November increased moderately sustained by the economic expansion. Ford led the competition outpacing Chevrolet while Toyota gained ground with RAV4 and Corolla.

Market Outlook

The Republican Party has swept into the U.S. Congress and the White House with Donald Trump’s election win, in yet another blow to pollsters and pundits, following failures to predict the Brexit outcome and the peace agreement in Colombia.

While the U.S. economy continues to expand at a moderate pace, supported mainly by solid private consumption, economic policy developments from the new administration will be of chief importance in the near term and through the first 100 days in office.

Meantime, the cars market in November recorded a moderate increase, interrupting the negative trend of the last three months.

In November sales had been 1.379.317, up 4.6% while the Year to date sales have been 15.862.708, up 0.2% from the last year.
