Early forecast for April U.S. auto sales

|By:, SA News Editor

A forecast from J.D. Power and LMC Automotive calls for automobile sales in the U.S. to reach 1.1M units in April, up 5% Y/Y.

The average transaction price in April is expected to be 3.6% higher at close to $29.8K.

What to watch: Close to half of the new models in 2014 are arriving in the premium segment which will cause new competition as some premium pricing dips down into the levels of non-premium models.

Automakers: GM, F, TM, FIATY, HMC, NSANY, TSLA, VLKAY, DDAIF, HYMLF, BAMXY, KIMTF, MMTOF, TTM
