FCA: #1 in Canada; up in Mexico

by David Zatz on

FCA Canada hit the highest sales since Maxwell Motors of Canada was founded, with 293,061 cars and trucks moving out of showrooms — just 3,057 more than in 2014, but enough for both a record and a place as the top selling car company in Canada.

Jeep had more than a 13% gain, with total sales of 79,680, beating its prior annual sales record as far back as November; the Jeep Cherokee was the sales leader each month of the year, and took over a third of total Jeep sales.

Ram set an annual record with 96,744 sales, up by 3% from 2014. The Ram pickups, not surprisingly, also set a record, with a 4% increase; they were the country’s second best selling vehicle.

The company’s minivans were responsible for 2/3 of all Canadian minivan sales, the bulk going to Dodge.

Over in Mexico, sales went up by 11%, the best annual sales since 2009. Fiat and Alfa Romeo both set records. Dodge sales rose by 25%, Fiat by 30%, Mitsubishi by 21%, and Ram by 46%, with Wrangler setting its best annual and monthly sales alike. Total Mexican sales, including Mitsubishi and a greater Fiat presence, were around 1/3 of Canadian sales. The country is the third largest market for “traditional Chrysler” cars.

More details on Canadian and Mexican sales will follow.
