US keeps on trucking as car sales beat expectations

Chrysler were out with their May figures earlier on and US sales beat the +14% estimations by coming in at +17%. It s the 50th consecutive month of gains.

Nissan has also just released their numbers and they also trounced the forecasts with sales up 18.8% from 11% expected.

General Motors, Ford, Toyota and Honda will be releasing their numbers soon also.

It looks like the US consumer continues to have an appetite for cars and trucks, or do they, as Zerohedge pointed out previously ?1

Update: No sooner do I hit the button than GM and Ford release their sales figures.

  • GM sales +12.6% vs 6.4% exp
  • Ford (light vehicles) +3.0% vs -0.2% exp
