The news coming out of the NADA today (via Wards Auto) regarding retail car sales…
2015 volume hit a record of 14.2 million (excluding fleets and daily rentals) and will increase to 14.5 million vehicles in 2016 and 14.7 million vehicles in 2017.
Incentives, leasing and loan terms are increasing.
Incentives account for 9.6% of suggested retail price, only needing to increase 1.5% more to hit levels seen just prior to the last recession.
