Truck sales also fell in July

In July 2017, US small car sales continued to disappoint and fell 13.8% YoY (year-over-year) to 0.52 million units. Truck and UVs (utility vehicles) sales fell to 0.89 million units with a decrease of 2.5% YoY.

In the last few years, US truck and UVs sales have outperformed the sales of small cars. However, weakening small car sales, as well as truck sales in July, could be worrisome for automakers.

With this, US auto sales have dropped by 2.9% YoY to ~9.7 million vehicle units in 2017 so far.

The US is the largest single auto market in North America and second-largest market in the world after China. Legacy automakers such as General Motors (GM), Ford (F), Toyota (TM), and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAU) are vastly dependent on the US market, as their largest portion of revenues comes from the United States.
