Definition of light vehicle sales

The number of cars, sport utility vehicles and light trucks that are sold over a given period. The category includes pick-up trucks, but excludes heavy trucks. As motor vehicles are big-ticket consumer durables, monthly sales figures in particular are seen as an indicator of broader economic health in a given country. The term is often used interchangeably with "vehicle sales." [1]
