Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has confirmed it is ending sales of Chrysler vehicles in the UK, which includes the Chrysler 300 and Grand Voyager. It will also end sales of the Ypsilon luxury supermini in 2017. Sales of the Delta hatchback ended last year.
Sales of Chrysler brand vehicles dropped below 2,000 last year, a 21% drop compared to the previous year.
Chrysler exports the 300 to the UK from its plant in Brampton, Ontario, while its hatchbacks are made at the Windsor Assembly Plant in Michigan. Exports of those models have already been stopped. The Ypsilon, meanwhile, which is badged as a Lancia in Europe, is imported from Fiat’s Tychy plant in Poland.
A spokesperson for Fiat said that the company was releasing no further details on the decision at present, including how the latest decision would affect the dealer network in the UK.
FCA will continue to sell the Jeep brand in the UK. According to the carmaker Jeep sold almost 3,900 vehicles in 2014, up 75% on the previous year.
