|Auto Dealers may see record sales in 2012; surviving dealers are stronger and more profitable|
|2/15/12Auto dealers may be racing toward a record number of sales. A consulting firm is predicting that the dealers that survived the economic crisis may deliver more vehicles in 2012 than ever before.Urban Science is estimating that each dealer will sell an average 785 vehicles this year. That compares to only averaging 719 cars and trucks last year. They attribute the nearly ten per cent increase to pent up demand and the improving economy.
The previous record was 784 per dealership back in 2005.
The number of dealerships also grew last year, after shrinking for several years in a row. Urban Science says the dealers that survived the economic downturn are stronger and more profitable. There are now 17,767 dealerships in America.
