DETROIT -- Fiat Chrysler's U.S. sales fell 10 percent in July, as a sharp reduction in fleet deliveries compounded a decline in retail sales, the company said Tuesday.
FCA said it sold 161,477 vehicles in July, bringing its streak of year-over-year sales declines to 11 months.
The automaker's retail sales dipped 6 percent from a year earlier to 145,391, while fleet sales plummeted 35 percent to 16,086.
FCA said the decline in fleet sales was driven in large part by Jeep, which slashed its fleet deliveries 82 percent from a year earlier.
Fleet sales accounted for 10 percent of the automaker's July sales, compared with 25 percent of its June sales.
