Chrysler International Established Record as Sales Increased Four Percent in First Ha

Auburn Hills, MI - Jul 5, 2008: Chrysler LLC has announced the following results for the first six months of 2008:

• Chrysler established a record for the best mid-year sales ever outside North America as sales increased four percent (118,386 units) compared to the same period in 2007; a result of the increased demand for fuel-efficient models like the Jeep Compass, Jeep Patriot and Chrysler Sebring

• June 2008 sales (20,198 units) were 12 percent below those of June 2007, which was a record month for the Company

Regional Sales
Chrysler sales in Europe decreased one percent year-to-date (64,684 units).

• Sales in Russia grew by 69 percent to 4,638 units during the first six months of 2008, the most significant growth of any market in the region. The increase was led by Dodge Caliber sales (1,733 units), which were up 82 percent compared to the same time last year

Sales in the Asia Pacific region increased 45 percent by the mid-year point, with 21,923 units sold.

• China led all markets in growth for the first half of the year, as sales climbed 113 percent to reach 10,517 units. The significant sales increase positioned China as Chrysler’s number-two-volume market outside North America behind Italy

• Australia and Japan, two key markets in the region, have also achieved noteworthy growth so far in 2008. In Australia, sales increased 21 percent year-to-date (5,638 units) and Japan sales have grown 14 percent (2,840 units)

• The greatest increase for Chrysler’s Latin American sales was in Argentina, where sales grew 88 percent to 2,245 units

• Brazilian sales increased 33 percent (3,096 units), fueled by demand for the Chrysler PT Cruiser and Dodge Ram Pickup

Brand Sales

• The Dodge brand achieved the highest growth outside North America, with an increase of 36 percent year-to-date (33,942 units)

• Jeep sales grew two percent (46,541 units) during the same time period, while Chrysler brand sales declined 13 percent (37,903 units)

• Chrysler Sebring sales more than tripled (up 229 percent) so far this year to 7,602 units; and the Jeep brand vehicles in the small SUV segment, Jeep Compass and Patriot, have achieved combined sales of 16,365 units, an increase of 86 percent for sales in this growing segment Chrysler offers access to its vehicles to more customers now that there are a greater number of right-hand-drive and diesel offerings.
