According to estimates, growing June sales are projected to bring an end to a stronger than anticipated first half of 2023 for U.S. vehicle sales. On Monday, GM and Ford stock prices rose, while Tesla and Rivian stock prices soared.

Following the Fourth of July vacation, General Motors (GM) is preparing to release Q2 new car sales in the United States.

The U.S. Q2 sales for Ford (F), Toyota Motor (TM), and Honda (HMC) will also be reported. Stellantis (STLA) said on Monday that Q2 new car sales in the United States were up 6% over the same period last year. Sales for Q2 exceeded analyst expectations.

On Monday, EV startup Rivian (RIVN) reported Q2 sales that well above expectations. On Sunday, the world’s largest EV manufacturer Tesla (TSLA) also did so.

Because of their expensive and ambitious switch to electric vehicles, legacy automakers are expected to pay more attention to Q2 EV sales. The magnitude of the issues was demonstrated by their usually weak Q1 EV sales.

The price of RIVN surged 17.4% on Monday. TSLA stock jumped 6.9%.
