Automakers Report September and Q3 2020 Sales




FCA US LLC sold 507,351 vehicles in the third quarter---a 10% decrease over the same time period a year earlier---as strong retail sales offset much of the ongoing softness in fleet purchases.


The Ram brand remained a powerhouse for dealers as retail sales for the iconic pickup trucks rose 15%. Jeep® also posted a solid quarter, led in large part by the continued success of the Jeep Gladiator and Jeep Wrangler. Total Gladiator sales rose 37% to 22,163 vehicles.


Third-quarter total sales finished 38% higher than the second-quarter results, as FCA sold 140,265 more vehicles.




Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. reported third-quarter 2020 sales of 24,857 vehicles, an increase of 1.5% over the same period in 2019, and up a significant 49% over the previous quarter of 2020.


This sales performance signals a continued recovery of new vehicle sales across the U.S., following a substantial disruption of business through the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic and safer-at-home orders.


Mitsubishi Motors Corporation recently released a first look at the redesigned 2022 Eclipse Cross, the next step in the company's commitment to delivering a showroom full of new and extensively redesigned vehicles in the U.S.
