The sales of cars in the United States for the month of September are one of the best sales that the industry has seen for quite some time. The boost in the sales is due to the Labor Day weekend sales deal offered by many auto companies. The Labor Day holiday weekend period helped three of the popular Detroit car makers to improve their sales that helped in boosting the overall sales of carts in September in the country.
Ford Motors, General Motors and the Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) are the three auto majors who benefitted the most during the Labor Day car sales. It looks like the boost in the sales will help the auto industry to register its best selling year since 2000. The sports utility vehicles and the pickup trucks are the ones that helped the three Detroit auto majors to enjoy a double digit increase in the percentages.
The analysts had predicted that the overall annual sales return would be over 17 million in the month of September 2015. But, the American auto lovers thought otherwise and went on a buying spree in September 2015 to record a sales figure of 18 million.
If this sales momentum carried into the last three months of the year 2015, then you can easily say that 2015 will be one of the best years for the auto industry in America in about 15 years.
The sales chart of September 2015 puts Ford in the top position. It saw a boost of 23 percent in comparison to the same period last year. Ford sold as many as 220,000 units in September. Ford sold as many as 70,000 units of F series trucks.
Jaguar Land Rover also proved to be a decisive player in the auto market as the company made an impressive sales increase of 61% in September when compared to the sales it got in September last year.
Nissan, Toyota, GM, FCA, Honda and Ford saw a sales boost in the double digit range and this helped in making September 2015 enter the auto sales record books. FCA gained 13% boost in the auto sales in September 2015 and this is the 66th consecutive month that the company has earned a sales boost.
The luxury car makers BMW, Mercedes and Lexus are still fighting tooth and nail to become the best luxury brand seller in the U.S. in 2015.
