FCA US posted yet another gain (updated)

by David Zatz on

The former Chrysler, FCA US LLC, sold 199,631 vehicles in the United States last month, 6% over April 2015 and the best April sales in eleven years. The gain came from Jeep and Ram, with Jeep shooting up by 17%.

The Jeep Renegade and Compass had their best months ever. Jeep as a whole, the Ram pickup, Wrangler, Patriot, ProMaster, and ProMaster City recorded their best Aprils. The company finished the month with around 620,000 vehicles, around an 84 day supply.

On the down side, Chrysler fell by 17.5%, Dodge by 3%, and Fiat by 19%. Alfa Romeo sales of 60 cars were included, a 58% gain. Maserati, which is not part of FCA US, is to be reported separately.

Most other automakers reported smaller gains, with GM down 3.5%, Ford up 3.6%, and Toyota up 3.8%. Notable winners for the month were Honda (up 14.4%) and Nissan (up 12.8%). Volkswagen continued its odd performance as buyers punished the Volkswagen brand (down 9.7%) but rewarded Audi (up 5.8%), though Audi reportedly originated the pollution cheat system and used the same engines.

FCAU (Fiat Chrysler stock) dropped by around 3%.
