“Repealing this 102-year-old tax remains our No. 1 priority. This tax discourages the deployment of today’s cleaner, safer and more fuel-efficient heavy-duty trucks,” said ATD Chairwoman Jodie Teuton. “And this year, we won’t be alone in the fight. We now have some strong industry allies.”
More than 22,000 people from all aspects of the automotive retail sector descended on San Francisco on Thursday as NADA Show 2019 and the concurrent American Truck Dealers (ATD) Show kicked off.
Commercial vehicle sales were stellar in 2018. On the whole, sales of Class 4-8 trucks were up 17.5% compared to 2017. Class 4-7 truck sales were up 6.5% and Class 8 truck sales were up by a whopping 30.3% compared to 2017.
Despite rising interest rates and a volatile stock market, U.S. light-vehicle sales closed out 2018 strong. The SAAR of 17.51 million in December 2018 was the second highest of the year, as sales for the month were up 1.5% compared to December 2017.
