New Car Sales Outlook

NAAMSA maintains a conservative outlook for new car sales going into 2015. The trading environment, particularly at franchise dealer level, remains difficult due to subdued economic growth, past increases in interest rates and above inflation new vehicle price increases. Export numbers are expected to improve going into 2015 with stability in industry vehicle production volumes.
