AUTO SALES CONTINUE TO BUILD STEAM IN OCTOBER

 

Cleveland, OH (November 11, 2010) – According to figures released today by the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Association (GCADA), for October 2010 v. October 2009, new vehicle car and truck sales increased by 30.56% when removing sales statistics for the discontinued Hummer, Pontiac and Saturn brands. A total of 27 brands registered increases over the monthly period, while new vehicle sales year to date through October increased 14.63%. Ford continued to lead all automakers in total new vehicle sales in Northern Ohio, followed by Chevrolet, Toyota and Honda.

 

For the second straight month, we continue to see strong double digit growth, especially in the upscale and luxury brands," says Louis A. Vitantonio, Jr., president of the GCADA. “It’s a clear sign that the industry is starting to pick up steam. In increasing numbers, consumers are showing a willingness to invest in their transportation. While we still aren’t back to the record levels we saw earlier this decade, I am confident that we are now on the path of strong, steady growth that will build a good foundation for the future of the industry here in Northern Ohio.”
