US auto sales slip in September

US auto sales slip in September Dodge-Ram_Rebel_TRX_Concept-2016

US auto sales slip in September keeping the year to date figures in black for peanuts. Ford was down again while Ram recovered the August slowdown with a tremendous performance.

Market Outlook

The world’s largest economy continues operating at two speeds. On the one hand, a strong U.S. dollar and lackluster global demand are weighing on exports, while low oil prices and rising election uncertainty continue adding pressure on business investment. On the other hand, a solid labor market, rising real wages and buoyant consumer confidence are boosting household spending.

At the end of a five years run, the domestic vehicles market is now almost stable with marginal changes year on year. This trend was confirmed in September when total vehicles sold have been 1.434.000, down 0.5%.

Year to date September sales have been 13.104.000, up only 0.4% from last year
