Re: International Jeep Sales Rise 11%
Percentages vs. numbers & numbers vs. percentages...
16,784 represents little more than ~1.5 months of domestic sales of Wranglers --alone-- last year... inotherwords, a miniscule number. So an 11% increase is not all that impressive. Even if International Sales jumped to 33,000 next year (a near 100% increase!) that would compare to only ~3 months of Wrangler sales in 2007... BFD
Even more ludicrous: 16,784 vehicles sold in 122 countries (outside N.A.... -U.S.-Mex-Can) means an average sale of only 138 per country. I think they sell more than that in Deadwood, SD each year!
Yes, work is slow...
Better bragging rights for Chrysler would be a nice fat U.S. Government contract for a few 100,000 JKs for the Postal Service & the Military... And the Military could sure use some of those J8s, er umm, I mean JTs. So could we!
