Monthly Industry Briefings - Monthly Industry Forecasts - Motor Vehicles
US production of motor vehicles and parts decreased sharply in February, as port disputes and poor weather plus model changeovers disrupted output. Nonetheless, with light vehicle sales up 5.3% year-on-year in February, manufacturers remain optimistic about prospects for the rest of 2015. Although the Fed is edging closer to its first rate hike, solid employment gains and improving consumer confidence – not to mention still-low gasoline prices – will drive further sales gains, especially for light trucks.
