The first quarter of 2023 was good for Stellantis, but not great; while net revenues were up 14% over Q1 2022, with a 7% increase in sales and high net prices, market share fell in North America and Europe. This was somewhat offset by small gains in South America and Africa/Middle East. Globally, low-emissions vehicles sales rose by 25%, driven by the Jeep 4xe series. BEVs were up by 22% year-over-year.
Net revenues were up by 14%, at €47 billion (€1 is currently $1.10). North America is the main driver of profit, but Europe provides around 150,000 more volume sales. The story by region is:
|Net prices were favorable|
|Net prices were favorable; new Tonale, 408|
|Including joint ventures; Jeep fell, PSA brands rose, especially in Turkey|
|New Fiat Fastback|
|Including joint ventures; C3, Berlingo, and Ram 1500 rose, Grand Cherokee and Compass fell|
|New Grecale, GranTurismo; sales more than doubled in North America, EU|
(Maserati is considered its own region.)
Inventories have returned to a more normal number, 1.3 million, between the Q1 2021 and Q1 2020 numbers.
The company promised eight battery-electrics in North America by the end of 2024. Wagoneer S and Ram 1500 REV are both confirmed for 2024 with an electric ProMaster confirmed for late this year.
