Chrysler Canada Posts 53 per cent Sales Increase in May


   * Sixth consecutive month of year-over-year growth
   * Minivan sales nearly double last year's rate
   * Car sales up 57 per cent
   * Fuel-efficient compact vehicles soar 140 per cent
   * Ram Trucks on track for a record year
   * Only automaker with two vehicles in the country's top five selling nameplates


Windsor, Ontario, Jun 1, 2010  -
Chrysler Canada today celebrated a 53 per cent sales increase over May 2009, with 20,887 units sold (May 2009: 13,657 units).  Calendar year to date (CYTD), Chrysler Canada sales are 28 per cent ahead of last year's level on the strength of a solid product offering and soaring confidence in the company.  For the sixth consecutive month, retail sales increased more than 20 per cent.

"After awhile things have a tendency to get old, but retail sales up over 20 per cent for the last six months in a row isn't one of them," said Reid Bigland, President and CEO of Chrysler Canada. "Sales of our current vehicles are booming and orders for our all-new Jeep® Grand Cherokee are quite strong - the additional manufacturing shift can't come soon enough."

Sales Highlights
Four Chrysler Canada vehicles recorded their best-ever May sales results - Dodge Journey, Ram pickup, Jeep Wrangler, and Dodge Challenger.

Sales of the Ram pickup were 26 per cent over the May 2009 level, with 4,401 units sold (May 2009: 3,505).  Ram sales exceeded the previous month-of-May record, set in 2007, by a solid 13 per cent.

Canada's No. 1 selling crossover - the Dodge Journey - posted sales of 1,903 units, an increase of 56 per cent over the same month last year.

Minivan sales continued to skyrocket, nearly doubling last year's pace with 5,773 vehicles sold (May 2009: 2,993 units).  The Dodge Grand Caravan is the No. 2 selling vehicle in the country and the company's highest-selling model.

Jeep Brand vehicles posted a sales increase of 74 per cent over May 2009.  Jeep Wrangler sales grew 94 per cent on 1,566 units sold.  The fuel-efficient Jeep Compass and Jeep Patriot saw sales increases of 59 and 141 per cent respectively.

Sales of Chrysler Canada cars grew 57 per cent, led by the fuel-sipping Dodge Caliber.  The Caliber recorded sales of 1,741 units, up 188 per cent compared with the same month last year.   The Brampton-built Chrysler 300, Dodge Charger and Dodge Challenger also had an extremely strong month, with combined sales of 1,404 units, an increase of 41 per cent over last year.

June Incentive Program

Chrysler Canada is pleased to announce for the month of June our best incentive offers of the year. Dealers across Canada will be holding special sales events to promote the company's "National Minivan" Sales Event and the "Month of Ram" Sales Event. To further build on the sales momentum of the company's two best-selling vehicle lines, Chrysler Canada will be increasing customer discounts by up to $2,000.

"May sales were an absolute blow-out," said Dave Buckingham, Vice President of Sales, Chrysler Canada. "To keep momentum growing on our most award-winning pickup ever, we are upping the ante with our best deal of the year on the 2010 Ram 1500."

Chrysler Canada continues to offer the most compelling purchase finance options in the industry, which are combinable with all retail discounts: the industry-first variable prime rate of 2.25 per cent up to 84 months or zero per cent up to 36 months on nearly every 2010 Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, or Ram vehicle.

Canadians are encouraged to visit their local Chrysler Jeep Dodge Ram dealership to see Chrysler Canada's full lineup of award-winning and segment-leading vehicles, including the all-new 2010 Motor Trend Truck of the Year - Ram Heavy Duty; the most awarded Ram ever - Ram 1500; the No. 1 selling minivan - Dodge Grand Caravan;  the No. 1 selling crossover - Dodge Journey; and the most fuel-efficient and affordable 4x4 in Canada - Jeep Patriot.

Toyota Continues to See Decline in Consumer Activity in Wake of Recalls

CHICAGO, June 1 /PRNewswire/
-- According to the most recent Cars.com Consumer Lead Index, Toyota's recalls continue to have a negative impact on sales activity. Leads for Toyota vehicles overall declined close to 5 percent year over year on Cars.com, and interest in the brand's vehicles continues to slip month over month. The Toyota RAV4 topped the list of vehicles experiencing the largest month over month decline in leads, followed closely by the Camry.

"While the Toyota trend is somewhat expected, what's more interesting is the fact that Honda has seen a significant decline as well," said Cars.com Editor in Chief Patrick Olsen. "Honda execs mentioned that they felt there might be some consumer backlash towards Japanese manufacturers as a result of the Toyota recalls and that certainly could be at play here."

Honda as a brand saw Cars.com leads decline by close to 11 percent year over year. The Honda Fit, Pilot and Accord also joined the list of the cars experiencing the largest decline in activity month over month.

Hyundai continues to gain momentum, fueled by the new Hyundai Sonata. Hyundai as a brand saw leads on Cars.com increase by more than 149 percent in May compared to last year and leads for the Sonata were up more than 30 percent over April.

Ford's U.S. May Sales Up 23 Percent; Sixth Straight Month Ford Sales Increase More Than 20 Percent

DEARBORN, Mich., June 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ --   --  Ford, Lincoln and Mercury May sales totaled 192,253, up 23 percent
     versus year ago.
 --  All-new Super Duty powers F-Series pickup to its highest sales month
     in more than two years; Super Duty sales up 82 percent versus year
     ago; total F-Series sales up 49 percent

 --  Record May sales for Ford Fusion and Edge; best month yet for Transit
     Connect.
Mustang's May retail share increase is powered by 2011
     models, which deliver even more horsepower and fuel economy
 --  Ford, Lincoln and Mercury year-to-date sales totaled 783,845, up 31
     percent versus year ago
 --  Ford gains retail market share for the 19th time in the last 20
     months, as more buyers turn to Ford's fresh lineup of high-quality,
     fuel-efficient vehicles
 --  Ford announces plans to build 570,000 vehicles in the third quarter,
     up 80,000 vehicles (16 percent) versus third quarter 2009; second
     quarter plan increased by 15,000 vehicles


Ford (NYSE:F) continued to post strong sales and market share gains in May, with Ford, Lincoln and Mercury dealers delivering 192,253 new vehicles in May - a 23 percent increase versus a year ago. It marks the sixth month in a row Ford sales have increased more than 20 percent. Year-to-date sales totaled 783,845, up 31 percent.

In May, Ford retail sales were up 19 percent versus a year ago, and Ford gained retail market share for the 19th time in the last 20 months. Fleet sales were up 32 percent, primarily reflecting higher sales of Ford's hard-working trucks to commercial customers.

Ford is benefiting from a fresh lineup of new, fuel-efficient, high-quality vehicles that deliver industry-leading levels of safety as well as smart design and value.

"Our laser focus on fuel efficiency and quality is paying off for our customers and for Ford," said Ken Czubay, Ford vice president, U.S. Marketing Sales and Service. "Our customers are rewarded because Ford resale values continue to increase at a rate higher than the overall industry - and they are rewarding us with increased purchase consideration."

In April, year-over-year resale values of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles outpaced the industry. Resale values improved 24 percent for Ford versus 19 percent for the industry, based on auction data compiled by the North American Dealers Association (NADA). The margin of improvement was particularly strong on cars, where Ford improved seven points more than the industry average.

Ford also achieved the largest gain of any automaker in Automotive Lease Guide's latest Perceived Quality Score, bringing customer perceptions more in line with Ford's improved vehicle quality.

Strength Across the Lineup

Once again, sales were higher throughout Ford's lineup in May - continuing a trend that began in December. Trucks paced the year-to-year results with a sales increase of 48 percent, while cars were up 9 percent, and utilities were up 18 percent. Year-to-date, car sales were up 29 percent, utilities were up 30 percent, and trucks were up 34 percent.

"Our results reflect Ford's balanced portfolio of products," said Czubay. "Our goal is to offer customers class-leading fuel efficiency, quality, safety, smart design and value in every product and category."

 Other sales highlights include:
 --  Ford Fusion, Motor Trend's Car of the Year, set a May sales record of
     22,381, up 13 percent versus the previous record set last year. Fusion
     has set monthly sales records in 13 of the last 14 months, and sales
     have been up 14 months in a row.
 --  Ford Taurus sales totaled 6,466 in May, up 98 percent. Ford Focus
     sales were up 13 percent.
 --  Ford Mustang's retail share is on the rise, boosted by the arrival of
     the new 2011 Mustang with new V-6 and V-8 engines that deliver more
     horsepower and improved fuel economy.  The new 3.7-liter V-6 achieves
     305 hp and is the first production car ever to achieve 300-plus
     horsepower and 30-plus highway miles per gallon. The new 5.0-liter
     V-8, offered on the Mustang GT, is at the top of its class with fuel
     economy of 26 mpg highway and delivers 412 hp.  Mustang's retail share
     in May was the highest for any month in a year.
 --  With sales of 49,858, Ford's F-Series posted a 49 percent sales
     increase in May. Year-to-date, F-Series sales are up 35 percent.
     Ford's leadership position in the truck market is strengthened by the
     arrival of the 2011 model F-Series Super Duty - the most capable,
     fuel-efficient heavy-duty pickup in the industry. For the second month
     in a row, sales of the all-new 2011 Super Duty were more than double
     Ford's plan for the month. Super Duty sales were up 82 percent versus
     a year ago. F-Series sales have increased six months in a row, and
     May's increase was the largest.
 --  Utility vehicles also posted strong sales increases. Ford Edge set a
     May sales record of 13,660, up 43 percent. Ford Escape sales were up
     17 percent, and Mercury Mariner sales were up 22 percent. Ford Escape
     is America's best-selling utility vehicle. Sales for the Ford Explorer
     and Expedition and Mercury Mountaineer also were higher than a year
     ago.
 --  Sales for Ford's E-Series van (Econoline/Club Wagon) were up 34
     percent versus a year ago, and sales for the Transit Connect were the
     highest for any month so far.

 North American Production

In the third quarter of 2010, Ford plans to produce 570,000 vehicles, up 80,000 vehicles (16 percent) versus the third quarter 2009. The increase reflects higher consumer demand across Ford's entire family of cars, utilities and trucks. Ford's second quarter production plan is 640,000 vehicles, up 15,000 vehicles from the prior forecast.

Chevrolet-Buick-GMC-Cadillac Post 32 Percent Sales Increase in May

DETROIT, June 2 /PRNewswire/
--   --  Fifth Consecutive Month of Double-Digit Combined Sales Gains for GM's
     Four Brands
 --  Calendar-Year-to-Date Sales for GM's Four Brands are up 31 Percent
 --  GM Crossovers Sales Are up 81 Percent Year-to-Date


For the fifth straight month, Chevrolet, Buick, GMC and Cadillac together posted a double digit sales gain, with combined sales increasing 32 percent over last May. Year-to-date sales for GM's four brands have risen 31 percent to 874,749 units - an increase of 206,994 units compared to last year, which is almost twice the volume lost from brands the company has discontinued.

According to Steve Carlisle, vice president, U.S. Sales Operations, GM's brands have outperformed the market this year on the strength of the company's newest products. Year-to-date, combined sales of the Chevrolet Equinox, Chevrolet Camaro, Buick LaCrosse and Regal, GMC Terrain and Cadillac SRX and CTS Wagon are up 323 percent.

"Each of our brands has new products that are being received well by customers. In fact, these new vehicles now account for about one in every four retail sales in the U.S.," said Carlisle. "With each brand launching new vehicles in the next few months, we are optimistic about the remainder of the year."

Since 2005, crossover sales as a percentage of industry sales have almost doubled. During the same time, sales of GM's crossovers as a percentage of the company's sales have more than tripled. May sales of GM's crossovers - Chevrolet Equinox, HHR and Traverse; Buick Enclave, GMC Terrain and Acadia; and Cadillac SRX - were up 83 percent compared to May 2009, and are up 81 percent year-to-date. Through May, GM leads all automakers in total crossover sales.

According to Carlisle, the company's crossover growth is an example of its ability to quickly adapt to shifts in the marketplace. "We're a much leaner and more agile company today and can take advantage of movements in consumer tastes," said Carlisle.

Chevrolet dealers reported sales of 167,235 - 31 percent higher than May, 2009. Retail sales for the brand were 19 percent higher for the month. Retail sales for Chevrolet's popular full-size pickups, Silverado and Avalanche, increased 14 percent, while retail sales for the Suburban rose 73 percent. The Chevrolet Silverado, Equinox, Traverse, Avalanche, Malibu and Camaro all posted year-over-year retail sales increases of 10 percent or more (read more).

Buick sales rose 37 percent for the month to 12,582 - the eighth consecutive month of double digit year-over-year sales increases led by the LaCrosse and Enclave. Retail sales for Buick rose 46 percent during May. Buick LaCrosse retail sales increased 191 percent for the month. Year-to-date sales of the LaCrosse have increased 162 percent (read more).

GMC sales of 30,160 were 26 percent higher than last year, while retail sales for the brand were up 37 percent. Retail sales of the GMC Terrain continued to gain momentum, with sales increasing 350 percent for the year-to-date (read more).

Cadillac sales increased 54 percent to 12,328, while retail sales improved 43 percent for the month. CTS retail sales improved 7 percent for the month, and year-to-date sales of the SRX are 439 percent higher than a year ago (read more).

Month-end dealer inventory in the U.S. stood at about 408,000 units, which is about 22,000 lower compared to April 2010, and about 267,000 lower than May 2009.

Audi Sets Third-Straight Monthly Record With Best May U.S. Sales in Company History

HERNDON, Va., June 2 /PRNewswire/ --   --  2010 May sales of 9,205 rose 22.7% above May 2009, marking the best
     May and the fifth-best sales for any month by Audi in the U.S. market
 --  The Audi Q5 crossover set another all-time monthly sales record
 --  May was best month of 2010 for the Audi A4, A4 Avant and Q7 models


Audi today maintained its 2010 momentum with record May sales in the U.S. For the month, sales of Audi cars and SUVs increased 22.7% compared to May 2009, marking the third consecutive time this year that Audi set a monthly sales record. May 2010 also ranks as the fifth-best month all-time in the U.S. market.

The May 2010 results were buoyed by the continued extraordinary public response to the Audi Q5, which established another all-time sales record in the month. May 2010 also stands as the best month of the year for Audi A4, A4 Avant and Q7 sales. Demand for the popular A5 coupe remained strong. The Audi A6 sedan also enjoyed a 51.9% increase in sales over this time last year and stands 34.2% ahead of the sales pace set over the same period last year.

Overall, Audi sold 9,205 luxury cars and SUVs in May 2010, topping the previous May record of 8,788 vehicles sold in May 2007.

Through the first five months of this year, Audi has enjoyed a 31.4% increase over 2009, with 39,839 vehicles sold.

"We continue to see Audi gaining momentum as American consumers are evaluating the luxury car choices that offer substance, performance and exceptional efficiency," said Johan de Nysschen, President, Audi of America. "This isn't growth fueled by risky discounting strategies. It is growth based on providing the cars that are right for these times."

Audi Q5 breaks another monthly record

Since its debut in 2009, the Q5 has become one of the brand's most popular models. As more consumers recognize the safety, luxury and utility provided by the crossover, the Q5 has broken yet another monthly sales record, this time selling 2,030 vehicles in May - a 43.7% increase over this period in 2009.

Audi TDI clean diesel technology continues to gain consumer acceptance

In May 2010, the Audi Q7 TDI accounted for 33% of the Q7 line sales, maintaining the healthy share of that SUV line's sales mix since it reached the U.S. market a year ago . Sales of the "2010 Green Car of the Year", the Audi A3 TDI, accounted for 48% of all A3 sales for the month.

Audi A5 continues to break its own monthly sales records

For May, the overall A5 / S5 model line (including A5/S5 Cabriolet sales in the 2010 results) posted a month-to-month increase of 145.4%, thanks to record sales of 1,757 vehicles. For the year, the A5 line sales increased 133.6% from this point in 2009.

The declines seen in the May and year-to-date sales of the Audi A8 sedan reflect the anticipated sell down of that model as the brand prepares to launch a completely new 2011 model of its flagship luxury sedan toward the end of this year.

Audi Certified Pre-Owned (CPO) sales fell 8.4% in May from a year earlier largely due to constricted inventories.
