2018 U.S. National Auto Sales Results


Image
One thing I love about the auto industry is it is full of surprises. The doomsday auto analysts predicted 2018 would be the year the wheels fell off auto sales. Even going into the fourth quarter, these folks said there was no way 2018 could top 2017. SURPRISE!

When all was said and done almost 17,335,000 new vehicles were sold in America in 2018. That tops 17,239,000 in 2017. As I said on the air, for MANY years, if 15,000,000 vehicles were sold in a year, the auto industry was drinking champagne.

Was 2018 the best year on record? Actually, no, it was the 4th-best, but still a very good year.
