Video transcript

Today, we’ll be taking a quick look at the April 2016 sales report and what’s projected ahead.

April retail sales grew 48K units over last year to notch a small gain on a daily selling rate basis of 0.4%. This was slightly better than forecast.

This performance can be attributed to the fact that:

  • Compact Car sales bounced back in April, and
  • Compact SUV, the industry’s largest segment, also held strong sales

Looking ahead, May is a cornerstone of industry sales, but this May only has 4 weeks and Memorial Day hits late in the month. So don’t wait until the end of the month to start your sales push!
