With the election right around the corner, the economy is one of the most important talking points at the moment. One in particular has been heavily scrutinized by the President’s opponents, and that is the bailout he gave to the auto industry. Since then, however, it’s been very hard to argue with the results. The US auto industry has bounced back in a force unseen for a long time. Month after month has seen auto sales grow and September is turning out to be no different. The trend continues for Chrysler and their products.
According to the Detroit Free Press, Chrysler is enjoying very strong increases from the previous year. In fact, it’s the best September they’ve had as a company since 2007. It’s also the 30th straight month of exceeding last-years sales. The increase came out to around an 11.5 percent increase. The vehicles sold totaled around 142,000 with the new 2013 Dodge Dart having an increase of 18 percent.
Reid Bigland, President and CEO of Dodge, said about the sales figures in September, “Going forward with our current product lineup, record low interest rates, and a stable US economy, we remain optimistic about the health of the US new-vehicle sales industry and our position in it.”
