LIVE: The big automakers reveal their sales

Throughout the day, the world’s big automakers will announce their December US sales stats.

Analysts estimate the pace of sales declined to an annualized rate of 18.0 million units.

“Since bottoming in February 2009 at an annualized 9.04­ million unit pace, total motor vehicle sales have consistently increased over the past 7 years, currently standing at a near post­ recession high of 18.05 ­million units,” Wells Fargo’s Sam Bullard said. “Solid demand, attractive financing, increased incentives and lower gasoline prices have combined to help make 2015 the strongest sales year on record.”

Here’s a tally of the companies that have reported:

  • Fiat Chrysler: +13% (+19% estimated)
  • Nissan: +19% (+16% est.)
