Jeep maker Stellantis’ third-quarter U.S. sales fell 1% year-over-year to more than 380,000 units as the automaker started to face the Detroit union strike.
The company said, though, that it started to gain momentum as the quarter came to a close, just when the strike was getting under way. It credited in part its electrified models.
“Our Jeep 4xe and Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid models continue to perform extremely well, taking the 1-2-3 sales spots among plug-in electric vehicles in the U.S. market, said U.S. Head of Sales Jeff Kommer in a press release.
Amsterdam-based Stellantis is targeting 2030 for an all-electric lineup in Europe and half of U.S. sales in battery-electric models.
Its Chrysler brand had a good quarter in the automaker's biggest market, that lineup’s year-over-year sales up nearly 100%.
