KEY: R = revised.

a New vehicle sales data is calculated by subtracting CNW Marketing's vehicle leasing data from BEA's data which combines sales and leases (see below for sources).

b Consumer leases only.

c Used car sales include sales from franchised dealers, independent dealers, and casual sales.

d Includes leased vehicles.

NOTES

Average price cannot be calculated from the data presented in this table because the vehicle sales and value of sales are from different sources.

Components may not add to totals due to rounding.

New vehicle sales and leases reported in this table are not seasonally adjusted. These data are not comparable to the data reported in table 1-18 due to differences that arise from the seasonal adjustment.
