Donald Trump has arrived to the armchair of the Office Oval of the House white and it has since all feet above. The market of the automobile in United States was wind in aft to all candle until December of the year past. Proof of this is that the sale of new cars had been seven years followed experiencing growth and in only 40 days this man carries in his chair he has experienced the first sales decline.
If we remember a little enrollment data, United States closed the year 2016 with 17.5 million units global sales (between passenger cars and SUVs). The market and the customers (mostly private) responded consistently to bids and efforts of the brands. However, with the fight that Donald Trump has with firms, January 2017 has resulted in a fall that we do not know to where we can take.
The descent who have suffered enrollment has been very slight, just a little less 1.9 per cent, however may be the start of something more important. Obviously, the experts have announced that 2017 should be a good year , and that sales of new cars should remain stable with respect to 2016. However, if Donald Trump goes ahead with its protectionist policies and against products imported customers they could cross their arms and stop buying its cars.
Car groups worse going what are Toyota Motors with a drop of 11.3 percent, followed by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) with recoil of 10.9 per cent. In the case of Ford Motor and General Motors (the others two giant American) their falls have been minor with a 3.8 and 0.7 percent in negative. In the side opposite have to Nissan with a growth of the 6.8 per cent on January of the year 2016.
We will be attentive to the February number, because the evolution of the market could tell us more than we think.
