For those won­der­ing where new light-vehi­cle sales are like­ly to head in the US this year and next, IHS released a report last month fore­cast­ing the num­bers. That total is expect­ed to reach 16.4 mil­lion this year and climb up to 17.4 mil­lion two years lat­er in 2017. That will be dri­ven pri­mar­i­ly by increas­ing con­sumer con­fi­dence and cheap financ­ing. Eco­nom­ic recov­ery is bring­ing a pos­i­tive spir­it back to mak­ing big-tick­et pur­chas­es while hav­ing been hes­i­tant in the past.
