Chrysler production levels fell 5.6% compared to March 2012 while rising 10.7% compared to February of this year.

According to this article, the Lancia Thema was included in that 300 number. I wonder what that number would be if it was just the 300?

Not much different. The production(and sales) numbers on the Thema are miniscule. Automotive News production figures typically show less then a couple hundred per month for the Thema.
