Check out the Monthly & Annual New Vehicle Sales for the United States Automotive Market
The U.S. automotive industry is one of the largest and most important in the world.
The U.S. automotive industry boomed in the early 1900s, and after the Second World War thanks to pent-up demand, an expanding middle class, and the growth of the interstate highway system. In the 1970s, the oil crisis and increasing competition from Japanese automakers led to challenges for American car manufacturers. The early 21st century saw challenges due to economic downturns, particularly the 2008 financial crisis. American automakers, especially the "Big Three" (GM, Ford, Chrysler), faced severe financial difficulties. Over the past couple of decades, there has been a notable shift in consumer preference towards SUVs and trucks over sedans. Sales of electric vehicles have been growing steadily in the U.S. Tesla, in particular, has played a major role in popularizing EVs. Traditional automakers have also been ramping up their EV offerings to compete. With the rising popularity of SUVs, crossovers, and trucks, sedan sales have been declining. Many automakers have reduced or even eliminated sedan models from their U.S. lineups. The pandemic disrupted global supply chains and impacted vehicle production. Demand outpaced supply, leading to increased vehicle prices. Additionally, a global semiconductor shortage further hampered vehicle production. The transition to electric vehicles presents both a challenge and an opportunity. Automakers need to invest heavily in research, development, and infrastructure but stand to gain from the growing EV market.
