US Auto Sales in June 2015. Chrysler and Nissan shine.

US Auto sales

US Auto Sales rose a little in June 2015 ending the almost positive first half with one of the best level ever at 8.5 million sales. Jeep, Chrysler and Nissan shine among brands while Silverado reduced the gap from F Series.

Economic Outlook

Recent data suggest that the U.S. economy rebounded as expected in Q2 after a notably weak Q1 showing. In May, payroll growth surged to a five-month high, retail sales accelerated and consumer confidence recovered slightly after a large loss in April.

These developments, alongside relatively low energy prices, point to an increase in consumer spending, which is the main driver of the economy. In contrast, even though the ISM manufacturing index picked up in May, a flash PMI estimate for June points to ongoing sluggishness in the manufacturing sector, due in part to the effect of a strong dollar on export competitiveness as well as slow growth in global demand.

Market Outlook

Sustained by the fast recovery in the economy and record low unemployment level, US market is benefit a long period growth started in the 2011, rebounding after the Chrysler and GM groups default and 2008 economic and financial crisis.

Albeit with a lower pace, in the 2015 the market kept growing and is projected to end the year near the best level ever.
