Fiat Chrysler US reports 8.2% sales increase in June 2015

Article by Christian A., on July 3, 2015

Fiat Chrysler’s sales for the month of June 2015 are up by 8.2% -- its highest June sales since 2006. Sales benefited from the high demand for the Chrysler 200 and the Jeep models. Last June, FCA US reported selling 185,035 units – the 63rd straight month that it had sales gains year-over-year. Of its five brands, three (Chrysler, Ram, and Jeep) had sales gains.

Meanwhile, there was a steep drop in the sales of the Dodge and Fiat models. Chrysler brand sales increased by 28% in June partly because of the momentum built by the Chrysler 200 sedan, which saw its sales more than double compared to the previous year when its current redesigned version first arrived at showrooms.

A record was set by sales of the 200 in June. It was one of six models in its lineup to achieve records in June. The Dodge Journey had its best-ever sales month. A 25% increase in sales for the Jeep brand also broke records for June sales.

Other models that reported their best-ever sales for June are the Wrangler, Cherokee and Patriot. Meanwhile, the new Renegade sold more than the Compass for the third straight month. Last month, Ram brand sales grew by 2.3% while the Ram ProMaster commercial van had its best-ever sales for June.

Ram pickup sales climbed 0.6%. The Ram C/V commercial minivan has already ended production and its last remaining units are being sold off. In June, a 14% drop was seen for Dodge brand sales even when Journey achieved its top sales for any month and the Challenger was able to set a record for sales in June.

Fiat brand sales declined by 30%, as it saw a 54% plunge in sales of its 500L five-door hatchback. It sold 324 copies of its new 500X crossovers, which shares numerous underpinnings with the Jeep Renegade. Only 25 copies of Alfa Romeo’s 4C coupes were sold in the U.S. FCA revealed that it ended the month with a 78-day supply of unsold inventory on-hand.
