May US light vehicle sales

Car sales continue to soften from the highs of last year.

U.S. Light Vehicle Sales increase to 17.4 million annual rate in May

by Bill McBride

Based on a preliminary estimate from WardsAuto, light vehicle sales were at a 17.37 million SAAR in May (Preliminary estimate excluding Jaguar Land Rover and Volvo).

That is down about 1.5% from May 2015, and up slightly from the 17.32 million annual sales rate last month.
