Jeep was once again the hottest growth brand in Europe as the Renegade led the way to 8,546 registrations, an increase of almost 133% over September 2014.

Year-to-date sales are up 159%, to 65,695, with more than 40,000 of those coming from the smallest Jeep.


Jeep deliveries increased by triple digits in most of the major European markets. Sales were up 252% in Italy, 221%  in Spain, 175% in Great Britain, and 148% in France. Things were a bit more sluggish in Germany with an increase of just  44%.

Jeep's market share has more than doubled this year, pushing it up to be the second-best-selling brand in the Fiat Chrysler line.

According to figures released this morning by ACEA, the European automobile manufacturer's association, FCA light vehicle registrations increased by nearly 16% last month, beating overall growth of about 10%. Total Fiat Chrysler registrations beat the market in all the major nations except Germany.
