Auto Dealers’ Economic Outlook

From lockdowns and forgivable loans, to record profits with half-empty lots, the last 24 months have undoubtedly been the craziest time the dealership industry has ever seen. Auto makers struggle to meet today’s demand due to supply chain constraints, and things keep getting stranger as interest rates rise, fuel prices continue to surge, and GDP slows or goes negative such as in Q1. Dealers are making tough decisions regarding the future. As the demand for electric vehicles grows, automakers vow to keep inventories low while flirting with the idea of selling direct to customers. To keep you informed, HHM's Dealership Services Group examines these issues and more in its Auto Dealers’ Economic Outlook, 2022 Edition.
