Chrysler leads everyone in March 2012 sales growth

The dust has cleared from the first weekend of the 2012 New York Auto Show and now that we have had a chance to sit down and study March 2012 sales – the Chrysler Group is once again the top dog in terms of year over year growth with a company improvement of 34%.

The Fiat 500 first hit the US market in March 2011 so this March brought about the first chance to compare year over year sales for the sporty Italian compact. Fiat fittingly sold 500 units of the 500 Coupe last March but with a 3,712 coupes and cabrios sold last month, 2012 brought about an improvement of 642%. The Fiat 500 lineup can expect to see year over year improvements, bolstered by the rising fuel prices along with the introduction of three new models over the next few months. 2012 will bring US consumers the Fiat 500L (Large), the Fiat 500 Electric and the high performance Fiat 500 Abarth.
