How many new cars, on average, are bought in the US each


Interview Answer

1 Answer


Given a total pop of 300M, I guess 75% are 16 or older (225M). Of those, maybe 40% drive a car (90M). Now assume a new person buys a new car every five years, or 90M * 1/5 = 18M. That was my answer and the guy said I was quite close.
