The GCBC Analysis
Large Car sales in America for the month of March didn’t look very strong. The segment was down more than 10,000 units for the month when compared to this time last year.
Of the models that saw sales decreases, all of them saw sales drops in the double digit percentages. The rises in sales for the two models that saw them were slight. The Dodge Charger was up around four percent, and the Kia K900 was up around eight percent.
When you look YTD, you see that this has been the story for the first quarter. The only large car that’s see any increase in sales when compared to last year is the Kia K900.
