NEW YORK, April 3 -- DaimlerChrysler AG , the third largest U.S. auto maker, today reported total group sales of 237,829 passenger vehicles in the U.S. for March 2006, a 12 percent increase compared to March 2005. All sales figures in this release are on an unadjusted basis unless otherwise noted.
Chrysler Group, which consists of the Chrysler, Jeep® and Dodge brands, posted sales of 216,412 vehicles in the U.S., an increase of 2 percent. Following global sales growth of 4.7 percent to 2.83 million units in 2005, Chrysler Group will launch 10 all-new vehicles in 2006, the most aggressive product launch in company history, while introducing some of the most fuel- efficient vehicles to date. Chrysler Group will take its best-selling Dodge brand to international markets in 2006, beginning with the all-new 2007 Dodge Caliber which continues arriving at U.S. dealerships this month to positive customer response.
Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) posted sales of 21,417 units, up 18 percent compared to the same month last year and posing its best March on record. Boosting sales for the month were the R-Class sports tourer ML-Class SUV. Mercedes will be rounding out its family of light trucks with the introduction of the brand new GL-Class, the first European full-sized luxury SUV in May. On the heels of recording twelve consecutive years of sales growth in 2005, February sales were boosted in part by this month's introduction of the 2007 S-Class, the ninth-generation of Mercedes-Benz's flagship vehicle.
Detailed vehicle sales information for MBUSA and Chrysler Group will be announced later today in separate press releases issued by the groups. March 2005 and March 2006 both had 27 selling days.
