Jeep sets its world record a month early

by David Zatz on

FCA has had its share of bad news so far this month, with the last 200 rolling off the line, sales down in the US and Canada, diesel Ram 1500s still delayed by regulatory review (Ram is not unique — many diesels are being held up), and, making it worse, nearly every other automaker having a fine November sales report.

On the lighter side, the worldwide Jeep sales record set last year has already been broken this year, about a month early, as predicted by Bill Cawthon.  In 2015, 1.24 million Jeeps were sold around the world; according to Mike Manley, there are 1.16 million sales through the end of October, so around 75,000 more were needed in November.

The United States brought in 67,285, Canada added another 6,198, and Mexico accounted for 1,430. That means Jeep only had to sell 87 cars in all other countries combined —and I think we can agree they’ve done that. After all, the company sold 8,087 Jeeps in Europe alone last month.

amc-jeepSo — congratulations on breaking another record, Jeep. Not bad for a company that was happy to make 113,443 vehicles, worldwide, in 1983!
