FCA sales in germany and mexico, May 2016 The German market, so dominated by car-types that FIAT has hitherto been absent-from (for many a year)and by the local car firms, is up a lot in May, thanks to extra selling days: by 11+%. FCA is up too, albeit a little less than the market-as-a-whole. FIAT sales up 8-9%, Jeep up 5odd% but Alfa Romeo up hugely (off a low base). FCA's first Germany appropriate model has just arrived: the Alfa Romeo Giulia, and the recent pickup in sales of the Alfa Giulietta gorgeous-premium hatchback bodes well for Alfa's relatively warm- and open-reception in Germany, Europe's biggest and maybe only market for (sporty or not) sedans, mainly. FCA sales are down in Mexico, largely due to a depreciation of the Mexican peso against the US$, resulting in declining sales of imported-from-usa models. The Brazilian Fiats (as Dodge and Rams) are still selling well, and growing sales. The Tipo will launch in Mexico soon, as the Dodge Neon (an old nameplate), and so will the Toro pickup,perhaps as a RAM. By october this year, Mexico will commence the local manufacture of the c-suv/new Compass too, mainly for exports northwards and perhaps to europe as well. Good sales for the c-suv in mexico itself are likely, though the currency-depreciation may keep costs elevated. FCA's growth in Turkey, like Mexico and Brazil too, is being somewhat (though not severely) affected by the currency-depreciation situations prevalent in these big markets. Which fortunately for FCA is probably is net-benefit, since FCA exports from their local plants there. FCA is a net-profitable in LatAm and Mexico+Turkey too, all three, unlike any other firm/brands AFAIK.
