The arrival of the 300C has helped lift combined Chrysler Jeep sales to an eight year high.
Strong sales performances across both Chrysler and Jeep brands saw 766 vehicles delivered last month, the highest combined monthly sales since October 1997.
The March result sets a new record for the most sales since DaimlerChrysler took over distribution from the former Astre Automotive.
Strong demand for the 300C drove the impressive result. With 159 sales of the 300C in March, it is the best performance on record since the vehicle’s first full month on sale in November 2005.
Combined Chrysler and Jeep monthly sales were up 26 per cent over the same period last year lifting year-to-date sales to 2,050, a 12 per cent increase over 2005.
Also on the Chrysler side, the PT Cruiser continued its impressive run with 97 sales for the month, up more than 18 per cent compared to the same period last year.
For the Jeep brand the flagship Grand Cherokee posted sales of 133, up 48 per cent over March 2005.
“The 300C has been an absolute phenomenon in Australia lifting Group sales to an eight year high,” said Gerry Jenkins, managing director, Chrysler Group Australia.
“With the arrival of the high performance 300C SRT8 this month and the seven-seat Jeep Commander and Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio just around the corner, our sale growth trend is set to continue,” said Jenkins.
