Industry Analyst,
June U.S. Light-Vehicle Inventory Bounces Back to Near Year-Ago Levels Despite Strong May-June Sales 
If manufacturers continue to expect a sub-17 million-unit market, there will be stronger inventory control measures taken either through summer deals, production cuts or a combination of both.
U.S. Light-Vehicle Sales Beat Expectations Again in June 
A deceleration in the slowdown in incentive spending that began last summer largely accounts for higher-than-expected results in May and June.
North America Production Outlook Raised for Q2, Cut for Q3 
Despite cuts to the outlook, third-quarter North America production is forecast to rise 4.4% year-over-year.
Lack of BEVs, Hybrids Limiting Fuel Efficiency Gains in U.S. Truck Fleet 
A lot will depend on how many can actually be sold, which is a dicey proposition, but MPG gains for trucks, especially fullsize, will accelerate from already solid improvements once more hybrids and BEVs are thrown into the mix.
June U.S. Light-Vehicle Sales Pegged for a 17 Million-Unit SAAR

The market appears firmly in a cyclical downturn, making the task of balancing between incentive spending and production adjustments to control dealer stocks even more challenging.
May U.S. Light-Vehicle Sales Put Year on Track with Expectations but Signal Continued Volatility 
Robust inventory, an accelerated downturn in year-to-date demand, as well as growing uncertainty with the economy, are making it tougher to gauge how the rest of the year will play out.
Third-Quarter North American Production to Offset Q1, Q2 Declines 
Third-quarter North American production is expected to rise 5.0% above the same year-ago period.
May U.S. Light-Vehicle Sales (Cautiously) Forecast to Rebound from April’s Long-Time Low 
Sales could still rebound in June, if May’s results fail to improve on April’s lackluster demand.
U.S. Light-Vehicle Inventory Records First Decline in Seven Months 
The initial outlook for U.S. sales in May is for a 16.7 million-unit SAAR, slightly below the 16.8 million year-to-date number through April.

Despite an expected rebound in second-quarter output from the first three months, first-half 2019 North American production will lag 2018.
April U.S. Light-Vehicle Sales Expected to Stabilize But Resume Year/Year Declines
