Chrysler U.S Sales Figures & Recent Highlights

The overall sales of the Chrysler company has been very positive so far in the US. It’s no wonder why the company is one of the “Big Three” automobile manufacturers in the United States. Things are not the same though for the Chrysler branded vehicles. As of late, the sales of the Chrysler brand alone has dropped continuously every year. After peaking in 2005 for selling 641,406 Chrysler vehicles, the brand saw its sales figures dropped for more than 10 years now. In 2019, the Chrysler brand only sold 126,972 vehicles in the US, its lowest mark since 1981.

Chrysler sales in the U.S. decreased by 34.7% in 2020, to 234,940 vehicles. This was due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which caused a decline in demand for new cars. Chrysler sales in the U.S. decreased by 33.1% in 2021, to 154,275 vehicles. This was due to the chip shortage, which limited the production of new cars. Chrysler sales in the U.S. increased by 107.4% in 2022, to 321,854 vehicles. This was due to the easing of the chip shortage and the launch of new models, such as the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan. Chrysler sales in the U.S. decreased by 13.9% in the first quarter of 2023, to 71,277 vehicles. This was due to the ongoing chip shortage and rising inflation.

Overall, Chrysler is facing some challenges in the United States. The brand is seeing declining sales due to the chip shortage and rising inflation. However, Chrysler is investing heavily in new products, such as the Pacifica Hybrid minivan, and it is hoping that these products will help the brand to regain market share. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan was named the 2023 Green Car of Texas by the Texas Auto Writers Association. The Pacifica Hybrid is powered by a hybrid powertrain that delivers up to 84 MPGe in city driving.
