The Man­heim Index came in at 125.1 in Novem­ber, an increase of 1.5% from the pre­vi­ous year. The full-year 2015 Index is on track to post an increase for both an annu­al aver­age and a year-over-year basis. The robust­ness of the retail mar­ket in new vehi­cle sales and used CPO sales drove the mar­ket up beyond ini­tial expec­ta­tions. While some lessors are post­ing gains on end-of-term units, that sit­u­a­tion will change short­ly unless it’s off­set by strong retail mar­kets.
