Fiat Chrysler Automobiles closed 2017 with full-year sales in Italy up 5.5% over the prior year to more than 557,500 vehicles. Alfa Romeo posted a 24.6% year-over-year increase, while Jeep and Fiat brand sales were up 22.3% and 4.3%, respectively. Jeep posted its all-time best annual sales result in Italy and, in December (sales up 36.8%), its second consecutive market share record. In fact, Jeep brand sales accounted for 3.4% of total industry sales in Italy in December, driven by the success of the Jeep Renegade and the Jeep Compass (with orders already totaling 32,000 units). FCA closed the year with a total of six models in the top ten. These included the Fiat Panda, Lancia Ypsilon, Fiat 500 and Fiat Tipo, which took the top four positions. In December, the Italian top ten was dominated by no less than seven FCA models. These included the Fiat Panda, Fiat 500X and Lancia Ypsilon (top 3), together with the Jeep Renegade, Fiat 500, Fiat Tipo and Fiat 500L. The Alfa Romeo Giulia was the best-selling vehicle in its segment in December.
