After facing nearly a year of sluggish sales, pickups and SUVs are expected to outsell cars in December due to low gas prices and huge incentives. According to Edmunds.com, consumers are flocking into dealerships to buy large vehicles while gas-prices are at an all time low and incentives are at an all time high.
The study also finds that sales of hybrid vehicles are expected to be way down.
“Despite all the public discussion of fuel efficiency, SUVs and trucks are the industry’s biggest sellers right now as a remarkable number of buyers seem to be compelled by three factors: great deals, low gas prices and winter weather,” said Michelle Krebs, Senior Editor of Edmunds’ AutoObserver.com.
According to Edmunds.com, pickups and SUVs will be up 51 percent during December.
