Chrysler’s October Sales Only Rise 10% in Sandy’s Wake
The growth was spurred on by a huge increase in Fiat sales, which rose by 89%, while Dodge sold 20% more cars, Ram 17% and finally Chrysler with a more modest 7% increase. While the growth figure of 10% may not be the highest, it is still growth, and it is sustained, as it is now the 31st consecutive ascending month for the American giant.
Jeep sales fell by 5%, but Chrysler say this can be attributed to the fact that the Liberty was put out of production, as well as Sandy. It is the first drop in sales for Jeep, since January of 2010. The storm caused “a few dozen” dealers to close up shop for at least one day.
