Sharp suc­cess

Shepparton News - Shepparton Car Weekly - - FRONT PAGE -

Fiat Chrysler Group (FCG) has con­firmed another strong sales month with 1681 sales for April, a 13 per cent in­crease on its April 2012 re­sult of 1488 units. Year-to-date, sales for the Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge brands stand at 8044 units – up from 6055 units in 2012, mark­ing an in­crease of 32.8 per cent. All mod­els posted year-on-year sales gains for the month but the stand­out per­former once again was the Jeep Grand Cherokee with 635 units sold for the month (2176 YTD).

Ac­cord­ing to Fiat Chrysler Group CEO and pres­i­dent Veron­ica Johns, this ex­cep­tional achieve­ment marks an ex­cit­ing time for the Group’s Amer­i­can brands.

‘‘De­spite short-term stock con­straints, the con­tin­ued sales suc­cess is a re­sult of sharp pric­ing and the fan­tas­tic com­mit­ment and sup­port we en­joy from our deal­er­ship net­work,’’ Ms Johns said.

Sales in the com­ing months are ex­pected to be bol­stered by the launch of the Chrysler 300 Core, Wran­gler Ru­bi­con 40th An­niver­sary model as well as the highly an­tic­i­pated Jeep Grand Cherokee range, which gains an eight-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.
