Asians: Thriving Auto Buyers – December 2021

14 December 2021

Asians spend more on cars

Despite being the smallest of the three major ethnic groups, Asians spend more on new cars. The average MSRP for Asian new registrations in the first nine months of 2021 was $37,934, compared to $33,710 for African Americans, and $33,677 for Hispanics (Fig. 1).
