Fleet Demand Expected to Exceed Vehicle Availability in CY-2023

The 120th State of the Fleet Industry video produced by Automotive Fleet offers insights into the state of the fleet market as presented by AF Editor Mike Antich.

🎙Today's topics include:

  • Fleet managers anticipate vehicle availability will incrementally increase in calendar-year 2023, but this will be partially offset by the fact that total end-user demand will continue to exceed vehicle availability.
  • OEM fleet ordering allocation systems are limiting fleet buyers to fewer vehicles than they requested, causing unordered vehicles to be carried over to the next model year.
  • Ultimately these units that have been carried over into the next model-year will need to be replaced. But eliminating this pent-up demand will take a while.
  • Eventually, the industry is going to find equilibrium between vehicle production and end-user demand, but unfortunately that doesn’t look like it will happen in calendar-year 2023.
