FCA Reports an Increase of BEV Sales for 2023

January 1st, 2024 by


Heading into 2024, now is the time for something new. Many automakers set target goals to introduce several new all-electric offerings by 2025. Some automakers have several while others are just starting to tip their toes. Stellantis would be in the latter, just now joining the game, and has planned for the largest expansion yet, with a total of 75 battery-electric vehicles (BEVs), according to its Dare Forward 2030 business strategy. A combination of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and the PSA Group, FCA still reports separately, and consumer demand for BEVs is growing based on the FCA US LLC sales report of 1,527,090 vehicles for the full 2023 calendar year.

“Our sales momentum continues to grow as we head into 2024…Our electrified offerings, which included the launch of Dodge Hornet R/T and Alfa Romeo Tonale in 2023, will continue to expand with our first BEVs introduced to the North American market this year, including the Jeep Recon, Fiat 500e, Wagoneer S, Dodge Charger Daytona and the Ram 1500 REV. As we navigate the wide-ranging transformations occurring within the automotive industry, we are focused on achieving our Dare Forward strategic plan, and we will continue to work closely with our customers to meet their demands and the needs of our dealer network in pursuit of that goal.” – U.S. Head of Sales Jeff Kommo

By the end of the decade, Stellantis has set its sights on a sales mix in the United States that is at least 50 percent passenger-car and light-duty truck BEVs. Well, let’s take a look at the company’s total PHEV U.S. sales for 2023. The top three models being sold were the Jeep® Wrangler 4xe (best-selling plug-in hybrid electric vehicle; PHEV), Jeep Grand Cherokee 4xe (No. 2 spot), and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid (No. 3 spot). Making a late debut in 2023 was the Dodge Hornet R/T plug-in hybrid –the original all-gasoline model was released first (G/T and G/T plus), so we can see why it didn’t make the top three, but it still made up a total of all PHEV U.S. sales, along with the Alfa Romeo Tonale. Together, FCA saw a major 124 percent increase year over year for 2023.

In 2023, Chrysler said farewell to the Chrysler 300, and claimed its fine with being a one-model lineup while it works on other things, such as a Chrysler BEV crossover model, possibly the Chrysler Airflow concept. Despite its loss of one model, the Chrysler brand still saw plenty of sales with a 2023 U.S. sales increase of 19 percent year over year. The Chrysler Pacifica minivan had a sales increase of 22 percent year over year, and the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivan accounted for 20 percent of all Chrysler Pacifica sales in the 2023 calendar year, a total of 23,943 out of 120,554 nits.

Dodge ended the Challenger and Charger models as we know it, selling the last all-gasoline models during its “Last Call” lineup. This earned it an overall 2023 U.S. sales increase of 5 percent year over year, and it would seem the demand for Dodge eMuscle is rising. Dodge launched the all-new 2024 Dodge Hornet G/T in spring 2023, selling a total of 9,314 units. The Dodge Hornet R/T accounted for 72 percent of all Dodge Hornet sales in 2023, a total of 3,591 units.

Stellantis may be late to the game, but they seem to have the favor of the auto market for BEVs. This year should be quite the change for the automaker.
