In 2014, 47% of new cars sold in the retail mar­ket came with a trade-in – the high­est rate since 2006. The new vehi­cle sales rate is expect­ed to hit 16.5M vehi­cles this year, which nets a lot of trade-ins and a full deal­er used car lot. The high vol­ume of off-lease returns has most­ly impact­ed cer­ti­fied pre-owned vehi­cle sales, which has expe­ri­enced that hefti­est gain among all used vehi­cle seg­ments through its ample sup­ply of used lease vehi­cles.
