Thanks to many – many – of you, we had quite a finish for U.S. sales last month. Eleven vehicles had their best December ever as we had a 20% growth in U.S. sales over December 2013. It was our best U.S. December sales since 2004.

All that and much more lead us to top the 2 million mark in annual U.S. sales for the first time since 2006, and we are again the fastest-growing automaker in America. Last year, we had U.S. sales of 2,090,639 for a 16% growth over 2013.

Minivans set records

Chrysler minivans set records as North American auto sales boom

01/06/2015



The Windsor-built Chrysler Town and Country was the top-selling minivan in the United States last year, and helped Fiat Chrysler post record-setting sales on both sides of the border.

FCA US said Monday its U.S. sales rose 20 per cent last month compared to December 2013, while demand in Canada soared 40 per cent.

Full-year industry sales in the U.S. reached 16.44 million last year, up 5.8 per cent from 2013, while Canadian sales rose 6.1 per cent to more than 1.84 million.

“Vehicle sales were unbelievably strong in 2014,” said David Adams, president of the Global Automakers of Canada. “Consumer confidence also rebounded nicely in December for the first time since August, and when you combine that with low gas prices, and very attractive year-end manufacturers’ sales and financing, it is no wonder the year ended with a bang.”

Adams said the momentum in both countries

December Europe Sales Up 7.2%

Fiat Chrysler Says December Europe Sales Up 7.2% To 56,000 Vehicles

1/16/2015

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCAU: Quote) Friday said group sales in December 2014 in Europe was up 7.2 percent to nearly 56,000 vehicles, representing a 5.6 percent share for the month.

Demand for the month reflected strong contribution from new models, including the Jeep Renegade, which is already among the top ten in its segment, and the 500X, which has generated over 1,500 orders.

Quote:
Demand for these two models will enable the addition of 1,500 new workers over the next three months at the Group's Melfi plant, where more than 1 billion euros has been invested.

The company posted full-year sales of nearly 768,000 vehicles, a growth of 3.5 percent, accounting for a 5.9 percent share of the European market. Fiat said full-year sales were up in nearly all European markets.
