The Here For America monthly “Dashboard” offers the latest data points and trends happening in the U.S. auto industry. The Dashboard breaks down month-to-month U.S. auto industry sales, production, and exports of international vs other auto companies to demonstrate their economic contributions to America.
In the July 2019 Dashboard, recent data shows the auto industry continues to face headwinds, despite higher-than-expected sales and production figures for May. New vehicle sales and production continue to remain well below 2018 levels. U.S. auto exports decrease due to trade conflicts and slowing worldwide sales, leaving automakers without a release-valve for existing new vehicle inventory as they prepare to shift production to 2020 models.
