Auto sales rose in the United States in June, particularly some new, more fuel-efficient models.
On Friday, Chrysler reported that it sold 30 percent more vehicles than during the same period one year ago, while Ford's sales were up 14 percent and GM's rose 10 percent.
Earlier this year, auto sales were hurt when Japan's multiple disasters disrupted factories that make cars for export, and parts for vehicles assembled in the United States.
Overall, automakers expect to sell more than 1 million cars and trucks in June, while some experts project that just under 13 million vehicles will be sold for the whole year.
