Patriot Only Bright Spot in May 2008 Jeep Sales

Date 2008/6/4 8:08:59 | Topic: Sales

From a Chrysler LLC press release.

Chrysler LLC today reported total May 2008 sales of 148,747 units, which is 25 percent below the same period last year. Total May sales reflect a combination of record sales of Chrysler's newest highly fuel-efficient vehicles, an unusually high 40 percent cut in monthly fleet vehicle sales and a continued industry wide slowdown in pickup truck and SUV sales. All sales figures are reported as unadjusted.

The fuel-efficient Jeep(R) Patriot posted record monthly sales as it continues to be one of Chrysler's fastest growing models. Jeep Patriot sales of 8,199 units represented an 82 percent increase in May 2008 versus the same period last year.

Despite slow industry sales, the Company finished the month with 412,009 units of inventory, or a 75-day supply. As part of a planned reduction, inventory is down 14 percent compared with May 2007 when it totaled 479,501 units.
