Car Sales Up in March
MARQUETTE, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – It looks like all three Detroit car makers outperformed the market, as car sales numbers come in strong for March.
General Motors and Ford posted sales increases of six percent, with Chrysler sales up five percent. The industry as a whole appears to be on track to see sales up four percent from a strong March of 2012.
Among foreign automakers, Volkswagen sales rose 3 percent last month while Nissan and Toyota sales were up 1 percent. March was Nissan’s best month ever.
Analysts say the strong sales have been pushed on by an aging car fleet, easier access to credit, and a lot of new models in showrooms.
