Canada down, Mexico up

by David Zatz on

Canada followed the United States, as FCA sales fell by 11% to 19,527. Retail sales of 16,067 were down 3%, so most of the hit was in fleet sales — down by 37%.

FCA Canada enjoyed an 82/18 retail/fleet sales mix. The company reported that the biggest gainers were the Jeep Patriot (up 85%) and Durango (up 35%),  though neither were barnstormers, with 787 and 230 sales for the month.


The top sellers for October were the Ram pickup (5,950 — down 14%), Dodge Caravan (3,572 — down 11%), and Jeep Cherokee (2,762 — down 8%).  The only other vehicles to break a thousand were the Journey (1,356 — down 34%), Wrangler (1,224 — down 5%), and Grand Cherokee (1,068 — up 12%).  Fiat sales, all told, were just 236, with the 124 outselling the 500L and coming close to the 500X; and Alfa Romeo posted eleven sales.

Year to date, FCA Canada is down by 4%, partly due to sluggish traditional-car sales.  The loss of the Town & Country also hurt; the Pacifica, only available in upper trims until late October, turned in 1,922 sales for the year. The Caravan has picked up some of the slack.


Down in Mexico, meanwhile, FCA increased sales by 1%, with 8,648 sales. With two rebadged imports leading the way, Dodge sales rose by 42%. Mitsubishi was responsible for around 1,200 of those 8,648 sales; Ram for 1,912 (including the rebadged 700); Dodge for 3,615 (including the rebadged Vision and Attitude); Jeep for 993; Chrysler for 155; Alfa Romeo for forty; and Fiat for 737.
