Our Take On The Vehicle sales Numbers

Many SUVs, light trucks and crossovers saw growth in August 2018, as several passenger cars posted sales short of August 2017’s totals.

In what should have been a month of easy wins for the industry on the back of hurricanes last August that hampered sales, across the board figures are fairly flat.

With incentive spending having featured heavily in a lot of brands’ strong numbers throughout the first half of the year – battling against high fuel prices – it is likely that through the second half sales will begin to dip. At the moment, a 16.7-million unit year is still on the cards, but the possibility of tariffs on European-imported vehicles could hamper sales if the US-Europe trade tussle heats up any further.

It’s not just European brands that will be affected by the tariffs either. Many commercial vans sold in the US market, including models from the likes of Ford and Ram imported from European facilities part-assembled before being completed and sold in the US.
