Car manufacturers - U.S. YTD market share - Q4 2019

General Motors was the market leader in terms of U.S. light vehicle sales during the fourth quarter of 2019. Between October and December 2019, consumers in the United States bought about 734,000 GM vehicles, making General Motors the producer of every sixth automobile sold there in the three months ended December 31, 2019.

 Plateauing sales after stellar spell

  U.S. light vehicle sales are stalling: the U.S. automotive industry sold just under 17 million light vehicles between January and December 2019. This compares to about 17.3 million units one year before. The trend is no different for America’s most popular manufacturer. GM’s light vehicle sales remained flat across the last three quarters of 2019, compared with the figures reported for the same twelve months in 2018. However, one must admit that the U.S. automotive industry had several good years between 2015 and 2018, when consumers purchased more than 17 million light vehicles annually for an unprecedented four years in a row. This stellar spell might have come to an end in 2019.
