With the first quarter of 2023 complete, FCA Canada remains the No. 1 seller of PHEVs in the country, with three models among the top 10 best-selling plug-in electric vehicles. Sales of 40,073 units for the period are highlighted by increases for Wagoneer, Ram 1500
and Dodge Durango. That overall figure represents a 6 per cent decrease versus the first three months of 2022.
“As we execute the company’s Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, we’re encouraged by our continued leadership in PHEV sales,” said Jason Stoicevich, president - Canada, Stellantis. “At the same time, despite the industry’s ongoing global challenges, vehicles like the class-leading Ram 1500, Wagoneer and Dodge Durango showed double-digit increases for the quarter and continue to resonate in hard-fought segments.”
Jeep Wrangler 4xe
, with an all-electric range of 35 kilometres, accounted for nearly 20 per cent of the total 5,010 Wrangler models sold in Q1 2023. Sales of the all-new Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe
continue to rise and, notably, the made-in-Canada Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid accounted for 35 per cent of Pacifica minivan
sales in the first quarter.
As the premium extension of the Jeep brand, Wagoneer
continues to build inroads. Sales rose 36 per cent for the first quarter of 2023. Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer received a revised engine lineup for 2023 featuring the new Hurricane Twin Turbo inline-six engine. Last week, Jeep brand unveiled a new collection of eye-catching, efficient and mission-capable concept vehicles for the 57th annual Easter Jeep Safari
in Moab, Utah, the brand’s home away from home. Stay tuned later this week, when the brand will make more headlines at the New York International AutoShow (NYIAS).
Also in the spotlight at the NYIAS this week will be Ram brand, as it continues its journey to electrification. Today’s tough, capable and class-leading Ram pickup truck products continue to resonate with Canadian buyers, with 20,125 sold, an increase of 10 per cent for the quarter.
Dodge brand saw sales rise 4 per cent for the quarter, thanks in large part to the muscle car of SUVs, the Dodge Durango
, with 2,260 examples sold, an increase of 43 per cent. Late last month, Dodge brand unveiled the Challenger SRT Demon 170
, the most powerful muscle car in the world. Demon 170 delivers 1,025 horsepower on E85 ethanol blend fuel and will be made in Canada at Ontario’s Brampton Assembly Plant.
