Chrysler doubled production (updated)

by David Zatz on

Chrysler released its September and year-to-date production figures. Overall, Chrysler made 32,467 cars in September 2010, versus 30,032 in September 2009 — not a large difference, but year to date, Chrysler made 285,280 cars through the end of September 2010, more than double the 128,242 made from January to September 2009.

The figures were similar for minivans, with 28,696 made in September, 243,548 for the year so far, and just 123,702 for January-September 2009. 221 Volkswagen Routans are included for September 2010 — 14,167 Routans for 2010 as a whole (just 235 for Jan-Sept 2009).

By comparison, Chrysler made 243,548 minivans so far in 2010, versus 285,280 cars of all kinds. Slightly over half of all cars made by Chrysler in 2010 were LX models, made in Canada.

The production figures reveal that one fifth (20%) of Sebrings sold are convertibles. The Avenger outproduced both Sebrings easily.

Challenger production beat 300 production, but was less than half of Charger production.
