The Chrysler brand has just announced it has received more than 10,000 orders for its brand-new, 2015 200 in the first day the ordering system for the sedan went online. The second day brought another 7,000+ requests from customers and dealers and, according to the company, orders keep pouring in.
Production of the redesigned vehicle had already commenced in mid-March at the company’s plant in Sterling Heights, Michigan, and full assembly capacity — much-needed given the 200’s pre-delivery success — is expected to be reached through mid-July.
This is great news for Chrysler, who has been struggling to survive with a lineup comprising only four models the past few years. That hasn’t changed and the offer will shrink even further once the old 200 Convertible gets the axe later this year, but the redesigned 200 might just be the pill that precedes the curing process Chrysler had to begin years ago.
