2 INTRODUCTION The U.S. economy continues to grow at a gradual but also erratic pace The current recovery is one of the slowest in the post-wwii U.S. history. Consequently, we have not yet seen the excesses and imbalances built up as much as we witnessed around the peak in previous cycles. Thus, I expect the U.S. economy to continue growing at a modest pace Labor market is improving. Household balance sheets are strong. Gasoline prices dropped 28% in 2015 from 2014, and averaged $2.10 through July in Interest rates are at historical lows. These developments have created a perfect environment for the auto industry, leading to record high vehicle sales U.S. auto sales reached a record high of 17.9M, including medium and heavy duty trucks, in We expect 2016 will be another record year In the longer term, vehicle demand will remain healthy as population grows and vehicle ownership rate recovers

19 NEW AND INNOVATIVE MOBILITY OPPORTUNITIES, SUCH AS RIDESHARING AND AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES, ARE CHANGING THE CENTURY-OLD INDUSTRY

20 SUMMARY The U.S. is an island of stability in a turbulent world. We expect the U.S. economy will continue to grow at a modest pace with auto sales remaining at record high in 2016 Low oil and gasoline prices will continue to support sales of larger vehicles, especially crossovers Long-term demand for vehicles remains very promising. We don t see that this time is different Contrary to popular belief that young people will not buy vehicles, they are coming to the market as a major group of buyers New mobility opportunities such as ridesharing and autonomous vehicles will increase demand for trips by providing mobility to those who are restricted otherwise and, therefore, presents a new opportunity to the industry
