Chrysler Canada sales soar 53%

by David Zatz on

Chrysler Canada posted a hefty 53% sales increase in May 2010, its sixth consecutive month of year-over-year growth and its sixth consecutive month with 20% retail sales increases. Chrysler is the only automaker with two out of three of Canada’s top five selling nameplates, and has the country’s best selling crossover (Journey) and minivan (Caravan).

Sales in May 2010 were 20,887; year to date, Chrysler Canada is ahead 28%. Dodge Journey, Dodge Ram, Jeep Wrangler, and Dodge Challenger all had record May results (best sales for a May). The best selling Chrysler Canada vehicles, the minivans, rose to 5,773 sales; Grand Caravan is the nation’s second best selling vehicle (one out of four Chrysler Canada vehicles sold is a minivan). Ram pickups rose 26% and Journey rose 56%.

Jeep posted a 74% sales increase with huge growth in Wrangler (94%), Compass (59%), and Patriot (141%).

Cars rose 57%, led by the Caliber with a 188% sales increase. The LX cars also had stronger sales, increasing 41% over May 2009.

For June, Chrysler Canada will emphasize minivans and Rams, increasing customer discounts on the lines by $2,000 and coupling them with a new variable prime rate of 2 1/4% for up to 84 months, or no-interest up to three years on nearly every 2010 Chrysler Canada vehicle.
