Default Current chrysler CAR supply

June 16th, 2009 by DaveAdmin
Chrysler inventories fell during its bankruptcy period, with all factories shut down, but were still high by import standards – and close to GM’s inventories. This data was provided by Automotive News, covers the United States, and was current as of June 1.

Overall, Chrysler ended the month with 86 days’ supply, or 260,400 vehicles. Dodge trucks were the most plentiful (97 days) followed by Chrysler cars (93 days), though since many truck sales are to fleets and there were few if any fleet buys during the shutdown period, those figures might be somewhat misleading. Dodge had 68,700 Rams in stock on June 1 – compared with 42,600 Doge cars and 63,900 Jeeps.

The largest inventory for a true Chrysler vehicle continues to be the PT Cruiser, with 158 days’ supply – beaten only by the Mercedes-built Sprinter. The lowest supply of a currently produced vehicle was for the Challenger, at 28 days (2,900 units); it was followed by Wrangler, with 38 days. Durango and Pacficia continue to be sold down, with just 500 Pacificas left and 2,800 Durangos, and 1,500 Aspens.

A plentiful supply of minivans remains in the U.S. (though Canadian supply is said to be constricted), with 16,000 Caravans and 18,800 Town & Countries.

The effects of closing dealers’ fire sales will likely not be seen in these figures. Days’ supply must be taken with a grain of salt since sales were artificially depressed by lack of fleet sales, and increased by people hoping to get a bargain from bankruptcy and those dealers which were able to sell off vehicles at low prices before June 1.

That is interesting indeed. Thanks for posting that. Just wish I could have gotten in on a sweet bankruptcy deal, as the dealership I bought my truck from closed

Chrysler inventories at the end of the shutdown

July 24th, 2009 by DaveAdmin
Chrysler’s inventory has not been in such good shape for years, with a mere 71 days of supply on July 1 – at the depressed sales rates in effect during the bankruptcy. Overall, fewer than 200,000 Chrysler vehicles were parked at dealerships and corporate lots, or in transit, on July 1.
Numerically, supplies were led by the Ram, accounting for one quarter of all inventory – but that represents 95 days’ supply, almost lean by 2008 standards. The next highest inventory level was held by the Caliber, with 12,800 units; the 2010s are on their way, with production to start in January, but Federal new car subsidies may eliminate the 90-day Caliber supply before then.

The PT Cruiser is the most plentiful vehicle by days’ supply, with 6,700 sitting on lots; that’s enough for 151 days at the current rate. One may wonder why Chrysler has green-lighted further PT production, but two rumors may explain it: the plant has an overstock of certain parts, already bought and paid for; and one new source claims a diesel will be planted in the PT to boost gas mileage. While that investment seems likely, one never knows.
The second most plentiful vehicle in terms of days’ supply (excluding the 100 Vipers) is the Mercedes/Freightliner Sprinter, with just 3,500 Dodge-labelled examples representing 145 days’ supply.
Any shortages on dealers lots appear to be purely local phenomena, with no less than 33 days’ supply of any particular vehicle (the 33-day car is the Dodge Challenger, with just 1,800 on lots or in transit). Dealers have plenty of relatively fuel effiecent

Patriots (10,200), Compasses (4,300), minivans (over 22,000 split between Dodge and Chrysler), and Sebring/Avengers to sell. There may be specific model shortages within those nameplates.

Chrysler will be resurrecting its factories during July and August, producing short runs of 2009 models before moving on to the 2010 model year.
