DaimlerChrysler AG, the third-largest U.S. auto maker, on January 3 reported total group sales of 218,530 passenger vehicles in the U.S. for December 2006, a 1 percent decrease compared to December 2005. For the full calendar year 2006, DaimlerChrysler U.S. passenger sales were 2,390,585, down 5 percent compared to the year before when 2,529,254 vehicles were sold. 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 190.415 vehicles in the U.S., an increase of 1 percent.

Following global sales growth of 4.7 percent to 2.83 million units in 2005, Chrysler Group launched 10 all-new vehicles in 2006, including some of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in the company's history. Reinforcing its position as America's favorite convertible company, the Chrysler Group is raising the roof on the convertible segment with the all-new 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible. The vehicle offers what no other convertible has offered before - three automatically latching convertible top options in vinyl, cloth or a body-color painted steel retractable hard top, all of which can be retracted with a push of a button on the key fob. The Chrysler Sebring Convertible achieves excellent fuel efficiency of 31 mpg and has Flexible-fuel Vehicle (FFV) engine availability, making the 2008 Chrysler Sebring Convertible a solid contender.

Mercedes-Benz USA (MBUSA) reported sales of 28,115 units for December, boosting the company to its 13th consecutive year of sales growth. The company closed the year with 248,080 units sold, an 11 percent increase over the previous record year in 2005.
