The US auto market showed the worst result in 10 years: popular brands and models

In 2022, the leader of the US car market changed. Large frame pickup trucks are still in the greatest demand among Americans, but the sale of electric cars is also growing.

In 2022, 13.65 million new passenger cars were sold in the United States. This is 8.9% less than a year earlier, and does not even reach the indicators of the “coronavirus” year 2020. Such statistics are provided by the focus2move website.

The US auto market showed the worst result in the last decade. For comparison: in 2016-2019, sales amounted to about 17 million cars. The reason for the collapse is a shortage of auto components, due to which automakers cannot produce enough cars.
