Fiat Chrysler on Tuesday “logged its best U.S. November sales in a decade-and-half” as the U.S. car industry shows little sign of slowing, the Financial Times reported.
The automaker said its U.S. sales were 175,974 for November, an increase of 3 per
cent from the same period in 2014, and that “its sales got a lift from a combination of low interest rates, oil prices and unemployment,” the Financial Times said.
Automotive News noted that the 3 percent increase was led in part by “another strong showing by the Jeep® brand.” The Jeep brand led the way for Fiat Chrysler, “soaring to a 20 percent increase” to 68,903 sales in the U.S., USA Today declared. “All of the Jeep brand’s models posted increases,” the newspaper said.
In addition, the “Jeep brand is on track for record global sales this year,” USA Today reported.
“Despite having two less selling days this November, FCA US still recorded its best November sales since 2000 and our 68thconsecutive month of year-over-year sales increases,” said U.S. Sales chief Reid Bigland,
in a Bloomberg News story.
The Dodge Challenger, Dodge Journey and Ram pickup truck also posted records for the month, the Wall Street Journal said.
