FCA has grown at or (mostly, all brands together) better than overall market-growth in: USA, Canada, Mexico, Italy, Spain, France, Germany and Japan too: SEPT 2015 The Renegade and the 500X are both growing month-on-month in all these markets, especially in Italy, France, Spain, Germany and the USA. However, the new facelift of the Fiat 500 is, predictably, not as well appreciated as the original, and its steady sales growth is not seen anymore across Europe, since the facelift. The Renegade, priced at some notable premium to all the other local FIATs is a 7000odd a month sales figure car in deeply recessionary Brazil. Where the other, older Brazilian FIATs are faring worse than the overall markets precipitous 25% odd sales slump. However, with the launch of the Toro pickup (sharing most under-skin modules with the Renegade) FCA will have another premium-priced vehicle in a big segment they've hitherto been absent in, and there are, at long last, several other all-new models coming up next year in Brazil, and so with their hyper-competitive brand, dealers and cost-structure FCA is doing well-enough, despite what is a very very severe economic recession in Brazil and the rest of south America. The Turkish market, hugely important for FCA, especially as an export base for a whole host of cars and vans, esp the new Aegea project models, was rebounding at the rate of 40-50% year on year, so far this year. But the crisis in the Middle East, geopolitically, Turkey's internal political crises, and the overall global economic slump caused by the China-decline etc, has Turkey slowing down badly again. Fiats and othe FCA marques are holding their own in that market, but will like all the others struggle for profitable domestic retail-sales-growth in turkey, it seems. However, with Europe sort of buoyant, FCA Turkey's export sales are set to soar further, as the Aegea models launch across Europe and North Africa etc. Overall it seems, on a global basis and NOT just in the USA, even in Europe, even in Brazil, and soon india and china too, the overall FCA financial status hinges evermore, in these times of 'permanent economic volatility and crisis, globally, on the JEEP brand, and its new-model plus global-manufacturing-and-sales push. Plus, the RAM brand lifestyle and work pickups and of course the FIAT Professional vans and utility vehicles. Sales and marketshare growth in some major markets for the FIAT branded cars is there, indeed, but industrial and market/macroeconomic conditions make profitability poor indeed for the FIAT brand, esp in Brazil and Europe. Of course, VW, Ford, GM/Opel etc are in the same boat, indeed worse profit-margin-wise in these markets. The Aegea series of low cost but high quality models should improve matters a bit, over the next year or three, but not that much, net net. The bouyancy in Europe, especially for higher-end cars, and the apparent goodwill across Europe (and Japan+Australia+Middle East) for Alfa Romeo and for the Giulia bodes, however, well for the sales and demand for the all-new Alfa brand lineup, starting later this year with the Giulia's uber-sporty-sedan version, the QV.
