- "May you live in interesting times"
To quote the misattributed ancient Chinese curse, "May you live in interesting times." These are interesting times indeed for the automotive industry. Another month, another record low for U.S. new light vehicle dealer inventory. In May 2020, the Days’ Supply fell to an astonishing 23, from 33 in April 2021 and 61 in May 2020. In response, manufacturers have once again dramatically cut their new vehicle incentives. U.S. market light vehicle incentive spending tumbled to $3,052 in May, down 5.7% from April 2021 and 26.9% from May 2020. In an effort to give their dealers something to sell, several automakers have rolled out cash bonuses for consumers who trade in vehicles. Ford has even launched a new $1,000 incentive for customers who order new vehicles. Thus far, new vehicle sales have remained strong despite the supply problem. June may be the month that changes. The lack of inventory will likely have a significant impact upon sales in June. Having said that, as forecast here several months ago June appears to be close to the trough for new vehicle inventory. Recently several automakers, including Volkswagen and General Motors, have stated that they believe the supply of semiconductors will begin to improve as the year progresses. If so, that’s welcome news for the industry, but don’t expect the supply of chips to return to pre-pandemic levels any time soon. Motor Intelligence on 06/11/2021

- For Auto Makers, the Chip Famine Will Persist
New cars increasingly are becoming computers on wheels, needing typically more than 1,000 computer chips for basic functions like raising and lowering windows or adjusting air conditioning and complex features like digital displays and adaptive cruise control. Mostly, cars don’t need the advanced and expensive chips like those used in the latest smartphones. Instead, they use mass-produced microcontrollers. Over the past decade, fewer companies have produced these chips... Wall Street Journal on 09/22/2021
