Overview of Chrysler International Manufacturing - 1998

In 1991, Chrysler vehicles were available in only 24 countries. Now, a full range can be found in more than 140 countries, even if only a few are sold. Generally, two brands are sold: Chrysler and Jeep. In some Middle Eastern countries, Dodge is still sold, as well. The range of cars matches that sold in the US, with few exceptions.

International operations are divided into three regions (Europe, Africa/Middle East/ South America, and Asia/Pacific).

  • The Asia/Pacific region is headquartered in Singapore.
  • The Africa/Middle East/South America operations are centered in United Arab Emirates.
  • The European operations are headquartered in Brussels (Belgium).
