Global car sales back on track

However, and somewhat later than earlier expected, at long last global new car sales appear to have re-joined the marketís long-term intrinsic upward trajectory 

Thatís the upbeat message from AIDís regular quarterly global car sales monitor, showing, to the relief of the autoindustryís global community, that the previously crisis-stricken global car market has finally put the recent past aside and is again heading into the long-familiar upward direction.

Global car sales, apart from a brief stumble during the height of the recently endured financial crisis, have continued their inexorable climb to higher and higher levels. 

Thatís regardless of the altogether different fortunes endured of late by BRIC member countries Russia and Brazil. 

According to AIDís latest snapshot view of global new cars sales, this time for this yearís first quarter, global car sales rose 3.4 per cent to 16.1 million units.
