It should come as no surprise that new car sales are up significantly from March 2020 to March 2021, but that doesn’t stop us from celebrating.
After a tumultuous year, we can see exactly how the auto industry rebounded. Nationally we’re seeing a 32% increase in MoM new car sales and 73% increase in YoY new car sales. State-specific increases range from 22% to 133%, with Pennsylvania (133%), New Jersey (109%), and Nevada (105%) showing the largest YoY jumps in new car sales.
Even with year-over-year inventory levels down 29% nationally, March’s new car sales numbers are the highest we’ve seen so far in 2021. That’s good to see as we head into warmer weather and the busy spring and summer months.
