If going through European car sales updates depresses you, I have one cure: follow the US market! It’s another euphoric score in November, up 9% year-on-year to 1.24 million units which brings the year-to-date total to 14.24 million, up 8% on 2012. But wait there’s more good news: according to Autonews, the industry annualised rate hit 16.4 million units in November, up 15.3 million a year earlier and the best SAAR since the 16.8 million hit in February 2007, 10 months before the recession hit the US market full frontal. Another feel-good stat: this month is the best November since 2003 and only 84,000 units shy of the industry’s best November ever – in 2001, when sales totaled 1.328 million…
