Fiat Brand Sales for February 2018

Fiat 500 Lounge

Fiat brand sales for February 2018 show a slight increase over January's record low sales. Fiat sold a total of 1,241 cars in February compared to 1,229 in January. Sales in January were the all-time lowest for the brand since its introduction back into the US market in 2011. This glimmer of good news is tempered by the brand's overall sales being down 42 percent for the month and 43 percent for the year compared to the same periods last year.

2018 Fiat 500 Cabrio


Sales of the Fiat 500 hatch and Cabrio models, in particular, have taken a hit, being down an average of 63 % so far this year. The lack of availability of popular models have significantly impacted sales. This is the result of the Fiat 500 production line being closed at the end of August while the 2018 model year changes were being implemented. Production of the 2018 Fiat 500 is scheduled to begin early in the second quarter of this year.


Fiat 500L


Fiat 500L MPV sales enjoyed a 64 percent increase last month compared to same month last year. Sales of the roomy 500L have posted good gains since last August, and are up an average of 32 % over the past seven months compared to the same period a year ago.

February sales of the Fiat 500X crossover and 124 Spider haven't fared as well, both being down 24 and 26 percent respectively.

Fiat 500X


Still, the 2018 model year for Fiat holds promise as the year brings a new 500 hatch and Cabrio with dramatically improved performance, and new colors and improved and enhanced features are distributed throughout the full model range. Fiat has also been upping their dealership sales outlets over the past year. There are now over 380 Fiat dealers in the country.
