Chrysler has announced plans to exit the UK market in 2017 due to poor sales.
This shouldn't come as a big surprise taking into account Chrysler sold less than 2,000 units last year in United Kingdom. In an interview with British magazine Autocar, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' deputy UK managing director Karl Howkins said the dealers have already been informed of the decision, as a consequence of a weak interest from buyers and also because CO2 emissions are simply too high.
The only car currently on sale in United Kingdom is the Ypsilon, nothing more than a rebadged Lancia priced from £9,995. Previous models offered by Chrysler in UK include the (Lancia) Delta, Grand Voyager and the 300C which never really took off.
