Fiat-Chrysler March US sales by brands and models image

FCA said it had an 8 percent sales increase last month in the US, marking the group’s best March since 2006, thanks to its heavier brands.

Fiat-Chrysler sold 213,187 vehicles last month, an 8 percent increase compared to sales in March 2015, and the group’s best month in a decade. Even if the results were particularly strong, the statistics below show the analysts’ forecasts, who projected for FCA sales between 220,000 and 230,000 units. The Jeep, Dodge and Ram Truck brands each posted year-over-year double-digit sales gains, “as consumers continue to shift their buying preference toward utility vehicles and trucks, and they are walking directly into the FCA wheelhouse,” said Reid Bigland, Senior Vice President, Sales, FCA North America. By contrast, demand for the automaker’s passenger cars kept the usual plunge, with Chrysler reporting a 13 percent drop and a 20 percent fall year-to-date.
