Chrysler PT Cruiser production continues
4th August, 2009
Chrysler Group LLC has announced that production of the
Chrysler PT Cruiser will continue. The Chrysler Group Toluca (Mexico) Assembly Plant — the exclusive
home of Chrysler PT Cruiser — will continue to build the quality-proven, versatility packaged and “too cool
to categorise” small car.
“The heritage-styled Chrysler PT Cruiser continues to be a global success story,” said Peter Fong –
President and Chief Executive Officer – Chrysler Brand and Lead Executive for the Sales Organisation,
Chrysler Group LLC. “With more than 1.3 million PT Cruisers sold in more than 60 countries since 2000,
we’re excited to announce we’re re-energising the iconic and award-winning PT Cruiser.”
The Chrysler Group changed the landscape of the automotive market when it introduced the segment-busting
Chrysler PT Cruiser nearly 10 years ago. Its one-of-a-kind exterior styling and Swiss Army knife-like
interior flexibility, offered at a compact car price, redefined the small-car segment and became an instant
hit with consumers.
High-quality, craftsmanship, performance and functionality continue to give the award-winning Chrysler PT
Cruiser a leg up on the competition. For years, leading consumer magazines and third-party studies have
recommended the PT Cruiser for its consistently high levels of quality and refinement—tying for first place
in J.D. Power’s Initial Quality Survey (IQS) this July.
Since production of the Chrysler PT Cruiser began in February 2000 (as a 2001 model), the PT Cruiser
line-up has been a continuous hit.
