Maserati US sales explode

by David Zatz on

Maserati continues to pack major sales hikes, with September sales rising from 379 in 2013 to 1,318 in 2014. The main difference is the addition of the Quattroporte and Ghibli, both reportedly loosely based on the Chrysler LX platform and architecture (with completely different front suspensions, interiors, and sheet metal), and with a loosely-Pentastar-based twin-turbo V6 along with a twin-turbo V8.

Maserati is still one of the smallest automakers in America, though it beat Jaguar this month, (though not year to date), not to mention Bentley (236) and Lamborghini (59), both of which are currently Volkswagen properties. Year to date, Maserati sold 9,125 cars, up from 2,241 in the first nine months of 2013.  The company is still behind Land Rover, but that may change when the Levante crossover is added to the mix.
