US Light Vehicles Sales Summary in July below expectation

US Light Vehicles Sales Acura-NSX-2017

US Light Vehicles Sales Summary in July below expectation with market flat year on year albeit consumer spending in the States remained rock-solid. Toyota overtook Chevrolet in second place.

Market Outlook

The U.S. economy firmed up in Q2 after having slowed in Q1. Data for June show that retail sales increased for a third consecutive month, consumer confidence jumped to an eight-month high and the employment report was outstanding, which alleviated concerns about the strength of the labor market. This suggests that consumer spending—the backbone of the economy—remained rock-solid in the second quarter.

The domestic new vehicles sales run has loss steam and July confirmed the shy trend taken in the second quarter with a flat performance year on year. Indeed sales at 1.513.000 were up only 0.7%, below observers estimate.

The year to date figure was at 10.157.000, up 1.2% or almost 130.000 units, meaning the full year could drop down from the 2015
