Chrysler expands production of hideaway seats for minivans
Auburn Hills, Michigan – Due to the popularity of Chrysler’s “Stow ‘n Go” hideaway seats, the company announced plans to invest U.S.$113 million at its St. Louis, Missouri South Assembly Plant to enable the plant to build short-wheelbase, long-wheelbase and Stow ‘n Go minivans on the same production line. Previously, the Chrysler Group only manufactured Chrysler and Dodge minivans with Stow ‘n Go at its Windsor Ontario assembly plant.
“We’re seeing the same positive reaction from our dealers and customers
that were echoed in our research clinics,” stated Ann Fandozzi, Chrysler Group Director of Family Vehicle Marketing and Product Planning. “Stow ‘n Go represents over 70 percent of all 2005 model year orders to date, and is growing.”
