March National Auto Sales Numbers Jump

Top-Selling Pickups Auto Industry Sales National Auto Sales

The spring selling season got off to a great start with March auto sales coming in almost 100,000 sales higher than March 2017.  The 6.4% increase was the second time this year auto sales have been better than the same month of last year.  A total of 1,655,864 new vehicles were sold in March versus 1,556,481 in March of 2017.

We also learned that General Motors will no longer report sales on a monthly basis, instead reporting on a quarterly basis.  Many years ago, automakers reported sales every 10 days, a practice General Motors was also the first to cease.  It remains unclear if other car companies will follow suit.
