Chrysler projecting about a 20% increase in U.S. sales for April

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Chrysler Group predicts that April 2010 would have US sales that are 20% higher than in April 2009, according to Chrysler spokeswoman Kathy Graham. She said that at a dealer-only conference call last Wednesday, Fred Diaz, Chrysler's chief sales executive, released these projected figures.

This would be the second time since the 1% increase last February that Chrysler recorded a monthly sales increase. In April 2009, Chrysler sold 76,682 vehicles in the US.

Recently, Chrysler posted a $143 million operating profit in the first three months of 2010 after it had cut costs and introduced the new Dodge Ram Heavy Duty pickup.

It can be recalled that Chrysler filed for bankruptcy on April 30. And on June 10, Chrysler emerged from a US-sponsored reorganization under the control of Italy's Fiat S.p.A.

Chrysler revealed that its global vehicle sales increased to 334,000 cars and trucks in the first quarter when compared to 318,000 in the fourth quarter of last year.

David Kelleher, secretary on the Chrysler National Dealer Council and owner of two Chrysler dealerships in Philadelphia, thinks that the company has recovered from the bankruptcy.

He said that the dealerships are paying more attention to their customers. Last March, Chrysler sold 92,623 vehicles, an 8% sales drop when compared to the same month last year.
