Market demand weakened US light vehicle sales fell 4.8% in April


According to the data provided by the "Automotive News of the United States", due to the continuous decline in consumer demand in the United States and increasingly fierce competition in the industry, sales of light vehicles in the United States in April fell by 4.8% year-on-year to 1,357,858 units. The data shows that the seasonally adjusted annual sales rate (SAAR) of the US light vehicle market rose to 17.15 million units from 17.74 million last year. It should be pointed out that since GM announced last quarter that it would only report quarterly sales, the total light vehicle sales in the United States and SAAR are forecast data.

Although GM stopped publishing monthly sales, Bloomberg News quoted sources as saying that GM’s US sales in April fell between 2.5% and 3% year-on-year. "The United States Auto News" was calculated with a 2.7% decline, and GM's US sales were 237,900 vehicles last month.
