Chrysler 300 sets sales records
Auburn Hills, Michigan – U.S. sales of the Chrysler 300 surpassed the 300,000 mark in April 2006, making it the quickest Chrysler brand vehicle to reach the milestone in 25 months. It comes on the heels of another achievement, as the Chrysler PT Cruiser’s global sales exceeded one million units in March.
In ten years, Chrysler brand sales in the U.S. have increased 144 per cent from 265,897 units in 1995 to 629,293, making 2005 the brand’s best sales year in company history.
Later this year, the company will launch a long-wheelbase version of the 300, which is expected to attract sales from the limousine industry as well as retail customers.
