Big Three takes beating in car rental biz, too

(Auto rentals) Permanent link   All Posts

The decline of Detroit's Big Three has been well-chronicled, and it only makes sense that the downturn applies to car rental fleets as well as retail lots.

In the past few years, imported brands have taken a ton of market share from Ford, Chrysler and General Motors in the car rental business, reported the Los Angeles Times.

According to trade publication Automotive Fleet, only 48.8% of new vehicles going into U.S. rental fleets came from General Motors, Ford or Chrysler in the first six months of 2009, compared with two-thirds a year earlier.

Just three years ago, more than eight in 10 vehicles sold to U.S. car rental companies came from Detroit's Big Three, reported the L.A. Times.


Thank you for such a informative blog. Where else could I get that kind of info written in such an incite full way? I have a presentation that I am presently working on, and I have been on the look out for such information.
