Canadian sales dropped a little in hot market

by David Zatz on

FCA Canada, the former Chrysler Canada, reported  a 3% drop in sales, with retail staying flat and fleets falling 11%. The totals were 5,662 sales to fleets, 15,012 at retail, and a total of 20,674. Fleet sales were 27% of the total.

Ram was up 12%, driven more by a 14% hike in pickups. The big Dodges rose, as well, though 300 sales fell. As in the US, the Dart and 200 took big hits, falling by 55% and 37%, respectively. Pacifica sales were roughly half of last year’s Town & Country sales, while the Caravan dropped by just 7% (Journey sales also fell, by 33%).

At Jeep, Grand Cherokee sales grew by 25% and Cherokee by 7% — Cherokee is the clear leader, with more than double the sales of the #2 Grand — while every other model dropped, with Compass and Renegade hit the worst.

The Italian contingent did poorly, with ProMaster City dropping by 26% to 141 sales, and all Fiat and Alfa Romeo combined selling just 166 cars. A single Alfa Romeo 4C changed hands, and fewer than a dozen 500Ls left dealerships.

Overall, what would have been an unremarkably month seems more like a slide given a dramatic 31% rise by General Motors, to 28,523 sales and a clear first place finish, and an 18% gain by Ford. FCA had been running the #1 and #2 positions for some time; this month it ended at a distant #3. FCA is still beating GM year to date, 259,859 sales to GM’s 249,212.
