Key points

  • Key points:
  • Although lower interest rates may provide a relief, auto sales are projected to decelerate as economic growth slows down
  • Uncertainty surrounding the impact of UAW-GM strike, trade tariffs on steel and aluminum, USMCA, and potential tariffs on imported vehicles
  • Electric vehicle demand has slowed down, potentially reflecting the impact of a slower economy and not enough new models
