U.S. auto dealers report mixed January results

Minority remaining car manufacturers that still report month-to-month U.S. sales are providing mixed January results until now, with supply chain issues remaining to weigh on the sector’s post-pandemic recuperation.

Hyundai broke a months-long slide in January with a 10% bump compared to a year back and also its highest January sales ever before, however the company’s ongoing supply battles are more evident when January’s numbers are put up versus December’s. Quantity dropped 7% to 47,872 from a month back, but Hyundai announced that its January numbers featured zero aid from fleet sales; 100% of the units provided were retail.

Kia’s inventory constraints similarly held it back. Its sales slid greater than 5% compared to last January and also greater than 12% from December.

The tale was similar at Mazda, where only the Mazda3 had a better January than it performed in 2020. The little automaker completed the month down virtually 17% in quantity contrasted to last January.

Similarly, Subaru reported 44,158 car sales in the U.S. for January 2022, a 4.8% reduction compared to January 2021. Subaru cited semiconductor lacks and also supply chain issues.

We will certainly update this blog post as even more outcomes are reported.
