Auto sales were flat for the month of January in Indiana, according to the Automobile Dealers Association of Indiana.
Automobile Dealers Association of Indiana Vice President Marty Murphy blames the frigid, snowy winter.
“We have some extra good deals going on right now, particularly in the domestic trucks–a lot of good rebates and packages coming in, so they’re selling a lot of those,” Murphy says. “You would just expect because of that for the number to be higher than it is. They’re right at dead even right now.”
Murphy says even though this winter presents a great argument for sport utility vehicles, those sales have also remained flat.
He expects pent up demand to give a boost to overall sales come spring the latest.
