Wards Auto released their estimate of light vehicle sales for January. Wards Auto estimates sales of 15.04 million SAAR in January 2022 (Seasonally Adjusted Annual Rate), up 20.9% from the December sales rate, but down 10.4% from January 2021.

The impact of COVID-19 was significant, and April 2020 was the worst month.

After April 2020, sales increased, and were close to sales in 2019 (the year before the pandemic).

However, sales decreased earlier this year due to supply issues. It appears the “supply chain bottom” was in September, and sales in January were well above the consensus forecast of 12.6 million SAAR.
