Spring Selling Season Continues to
Drive Strong Automotive Sales in April

Cleveland, OH (May 9, 2013) – Sales of light cars and trucks surged more than nine percent in April of 2013 when comparing it to the same month a year prior, according to figures released today by the Greater Cleveland Automobile Dealers’ Association (GCADA). Retail automotive dealers from the 21-county region served by the GCADA sold 20,958 vehicles in April of 2013 versus 19,210 in April of 2012, and increase of 9.1 percent.

“Steady gas prices, pent up demand and the spring selling season continue the positive sales trend in Northern Ohio,” says Louis A. Vitantonio, Jr., president of the GCADA. “Not only did new car and truck sales increase over 9 percent, we also had a strong used car sales month increasing 7 percent over last year. This news continues to bode well for our region as the economy strengthens.”

For the year to date, sales are up 7.95 percent, with dealers selling 73,331 new vehicles through the end of April this year versus 67,933 at the same time last year.

Ford led the way among the many brands that were up for the month, selling 4,005 vehicles last month compared to 3,344 vehicles in April of 2012, an increase of nearly 20 percent. Chevrolet once again came in second, but also enjoyed healthy double-digit growth, selling 2,782 vehicles in April, an increase of more than 13 percent over the same period a year prior. Similarly, General Motors brands Buick, GMC and Cadillac all enjoyed strong double-digit growth. Toyota was Northern Ohio’s third best selling brand, selling 1,826, while Honda came in fourth at 1,768 vehicles sold in the month.
