FCA Canada today reported first-quarter 2022 total sales of 42,587 vehicles.
“The past few months have included significant new product launches and updates for the company, most notably for several models from the Jeep® brand,” said David Buckingham, president and CEO, FCA Canada. “What’s more, in just its first year in the marketplace, Jeep Wrangler 4xe has quickly become one of the best-selling plug-in hybrid vehicles in Canada. Today, one in five Wrangler models sold is a plug-in hybrid 4xe, as the brand moves toward its goal of being the number one green SUV brand in the world.”
For Q1 2022, Jeep brand total sales of 16,659 represent an 11 per cent increase compared with the prior year. Highlights include Wrangler (up 47 per cent), Gladiator (up 34 per cent), Compass (up 23 per cent) and Grand Cherokee (up 10 per cent). Now a family of vehicles, the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee two-row and three-row L models have solidified Grand Cherokee’s position as the best-selling full-size SUV in Canada. That position will only grow stronger as the first electrified Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe plug-in hybrid enters the marketplace in Q2, bringing new levels of capability and efficiency.
Ram brand sales were highlighted by Ram Heavy Duty, with sales up 6 per cent for Q1 2022. In March, as Stellantis shared its long-term strategic plan, two images were shown that provided a preview of the new Ram 1500 battery-electric vehicle (BEV) pickup truck arriving in 2024.
Chrysler brand sales were up 54 per cent in Q1 with 3,627 vehicles sold compared with the prior year. Comprised of Grand Caravan, Pacifica and Pacifica Hybrid – the segment’s only plug-in hybrid – Chrysler minivan sales led the increase for the brand with a 60 per cent bump. Offering 50 kilometres of all-electric range and fuel efficiency as good as 2.9 Le/100 km, the plug-in hybrid model accounted for 40 percent of Q1 Pacifica sales. The made-in-Canada Chrysler minivans remain the best-selling lineup of minivans in the country.
