Fiat-Chrysler Australia had a good month in November, with Jeep Grand Cherokee sales hitting 1,405 — the fifth month in a row it sold over a thousand Grand Cherokees. Together, the Alfa, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, and Jeep brands sold over 30,000 vehicles year-to-date, a record since Chrysler left Australia in the 1980s.
This is the 31st consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth for Chrysler’s brands, and the 13th for Fiat/Alfa. Cars that set records were Jeep as a whole (2,176), Fiat as a whole (511), Fiat Freemont (Dodge Journey, 147), and Fiat 500 (326 including Abarth).
The gains were not enough to get a car into the top ten, which ranges from Toyota Corolla (3,894 sales in November 2013) to Mitsubishi Triton (1,703), but are a substantial increase over recent years. Top selling brands in Australia for November were Toyota (18,098), GM’s Holden (10,477), and Hyundai (8,530). Subaru outsells Honda in the rugged island-continent.
