FCA in Japan, November 2015 Fiat is up hugely year-on-year in nov in an overall market that is down 8+%. Jeep is keeping its steady run rate of 400+- cars each month. All FCA cars are of course imported, inlcuded Abarths-, for which demand remains strong in japan, Alfa-s (which is down and needs the Giulia asap), dodges, maserati-s, and ferrari-s. Overall, the market is declining for various reasons but FCA is making some money. The renegade and the 500X have not yet been released in japan afaik, so big sales-number increases are likely: Japan likes Mini andlikes Jeep, so. Eventually i guess the Jeeps Cherokee, the new C-suv, the renegade and the 500X will be exported there not out of the usa or italy but either India or china, by 2017/2018, which should make them very price competitive (the yen is severely depreciated). But the numbers aren't that big. When the trans-pacific free agreement, recently concluded, becomes fully operationalized FCA will likely seek to grow, via tariff-free access, in Japan. They make money there, more can be made, but in the final analysis, like with india: not much, in the circumstances.
