Fiat Chrysler Automobiles - U.S. vehicle sales by segment 2020

Fiat Chrysler sold 446,600 vehicles in the first quarter of 2019, down by around 51,800 units compared with the same period last year. The largest drops in sales belongs Jeep, but in proportion to total vehicle sales, the Fiat brand is performing the worst, selling roughly half of its 2019 Q1 figures. Ram was one of the few brands to actually see a rise in sales in 2020.

FCA and the future of vehicle sales

Drops in sales in the U.S. market is not a problem faced exclusively by Fiat Chrysler. In comparison to the rest of the U.S. market, sales of used light vehicles and plug-in electric cars have both been on the rise, with the latter seeing an 80 percent increase in total sales between 2017 and 2018. This will most likely be a key target for auto manufacturers, as battery electric vehicles are projected to increase significantly in the upcoming decades, even in the U.S.

Entering the electric market is cited as one of the principle reasons why FCA has approached major European manufacturing group, Renault, for a merger. Renault already works in collaboration with Nissan and Mitsubishi, and the alliance saw plug-in electric vehicle sales increase 67 percent from 2017 to 2018. Nissan also has two of the top six best-selling car brands in the U.S. On the global scale, it is expected that for all parties, the merger will allow the manufacturers to stay influential in an increasingly competitive global market.

Talks with Renault led nowhere significant. The Alliance of Renault, Nissan and Mitsubishi face trouble between 2017 and 2020 as their lead figure came under criminal investigations. Fiat Chrysler then went on to announce a merger with Group PSA which is expected to be completed in 2020. During the announcement of the merger, it was claimed all new models for both companies would offer electrified versions of their vehicles and that electrification was a priority of their shared future.
