Polk Predicts News Vehicle Sales and Production to See Real Growth


New York Times - January 2, 2013

Auto­mo­tive mar­ket intel­li­gence firm Polk expects US auto sales to rise 6.6% in 2013 over 2012 lev­els – reach­ing 15.3 new light-duty vehi­cles sold. North Amer­i­can pro­duc­tion vol­umes are expected to increase to about 15.9 mil­lion units, which could be a 2.4% increase over 2012. These are signs that auto indus­try is con­tin­u­ing to recover, and it’s also a pos­i­tive sign for the Amer­i­can econ­omy, the com­pany says.
