FCA US and FCA Canada Will Move to Quarterly Sales Reporting
After review, FCA US LLC has decided to end the practice of reporting U.S. and Canada retail sales on a monthly basis following June results.
 
“A quarterly sales reporting cadence will continue to provide transparency into our sales results while at the same time aligning with where industry practice is heading,” said Niel Golightly, FCA Global Chief Communications Officer.
 
FCA US and FCA Canada will report monthly sales for May and June. The first quarterly report will occur on October 1, 2019, covering the three months of July, August and September. FCA will continue to share certain sales data with third-party research firms, under appropriate confidentiality arrangements.
