Record new-vehicle sales in 2015

January 15, 2016
The United States saw a record 17.4 million light vehicles retailed in 2015, a jump of 5.8 percent from the year before. The average transaction was $33,269.
That number is expected to rise to 17.7 million vehicles, or another 2 percent, in the 2016 calendar year. It would be the seventh-consecutive year of auto growth.
"We are living peak auto sales right now, and we will see one more year of that growth in 2016," Steve Szakaly, chief economist of the National Automobile Dealers Association, said in a news release. "But only because of rising incentives that will keep consumers coming into showrooms. The real worry now is whether we’re starting to pull sales ahead from future years."
