Chrysler Canada, Mexico sales

by David Zatz on

Chrysler Canada finished its 49th consecutive month of year over year sales growth, the longest such streak in its history, for the best sales year since 2000, when Chrysler was still largely unaffected by the Daimler acquisition. Chrysler Canada sold 15,445 vehicles in December 2013 (vs 14,756 in 2012), a 5% increase; for the full year, sales rose by 7%, from 243,845 to 260,015.

After 30 years on the market, Dodge and Chrysler minivan sales continue to be strong, with a collective 12% increase. For the year, an annual record was set for the Ontario-built Chrysler Town & Country with 8,425 sales, an increase of 111% over full-year 2012. Caravan sales were not reported but likely fell somewhat.
