The Chrysler Group Sales Increase in October by 22 percent, making it the best October the company had since the year 2001.
Reid Bigland, Chrysler’s Head of U.S. Sale said that:
“Chrysler Group sales increased 22 percent in October, our eighth month of double-digit growth this year and our 55th-consecutive month of year-over-year sales gains.”
“Chrysler Group is the industry’s fastest-growing automaker driven in part by sales of our all-new Jeep Cherokee and Chrysler 200 mid-size sedan, and by the strong consumer demand for our award-winning Ram pickup trucks.”
The Chrysler 200 is seeing its sales increase by 40 percent more than last year. Ram have also upped their sales by 33 percent but it’s Jeep who lead the market once more with their sales rising by an astounding 52 percent.
Fred Diaz, U.S. Sales & Marketing and Aftersales and senior vice president of Nissan as a response to Nissan’s sales of 13 percent in the month of October said that:
“High consumer confidence and low gas prices helped Nissan set our 13th consecutive monthly sales record in October. We expect that these factors will continue to boost auto sales for the last two months of 2014.”
“Crossover sales are booming, and the all-new 2015 Murano, which goes into production this week in Canton, Mississippi, will bring additional excitement to Nissan’s crossover lineup that already includes the red-hot Rogue.”
Honda division general manager and senior vice president Jeff Conrad faced with Honda’s 6 percent sale increase stated that:
“The new 2015 CR-V is giving renewed momentum to what has already been an incredible year,”
“The success of the new Fit is an important step in re-establishing small cars as a pillar in the Honda lineup.”
But not all of them had an increase in sales as Dodge saw its sales drop by 8 percent in October. The low sale rates were due to the Charger, Durango, Caravan and the Avenger with sales falling by 11 percent, 5 percent, 14 percent and a whopping 75 percent drop for the Avenger.
As of now the sale numbers for GM and Ford have not been released and are expected to be made public at 9AM.
