First Taiwanese-built Chrysler Town & Country rolls off assembly line
Yangmei, Taiwan – One year after announcing that the Chrysler Group would license China Motor Corporation (CMC) to produce the Chrysler Town & Country, the first customer-ready vehicle rolled off the production line at CMC’s Yangmei facility in Taiwan.
Tom LaSorda, Chrysler Group President and CEO, made his second trip to Taiwan in eight months to review the Chrysler Town & Country production launch and celebrate the first customer-ready vehicle.
“With the roll-off of the first customer-ready vehicle, CMC joins the family of Chrysler minivan production facilities in the U.S., Canada and Austria,” said LaSorda.
The locally assembled Chrysler Town & Country was specifically adapted by CMC to meet the needs of Taiwanese customers, including detailed touches on the exterior that better cater to Taiwan customers’ preferences, and adjustments to provide safety and comfort for the driving environment of Taiwan.
