September’s auto sales in the US stood at 1,428,000 vehicle units. This was ~0.5% lower than US auto sales of 1,435,000 vehicle units in September 2015. In August 2016, auto sales stood at 1,506,000 in the US.
The US auto industry has witnessed good times in the past couple of years. In 2015, US auto sales were at their peak, with ~17.4 million vehicles sold during the year. This certainly boosted the confidence of these automakers. However, it also ignited a debate about US auto sales being at peak levels and a possible downturn in US auto demand going forward. Through September 2016, US auto sales figures stood at ~13.0 million vehicles.
