VENEZUELA: New Chrysler minivan imported from Austria, not North America

By just-auto.com editorial team | 3 July 2001

The Chrysler Grand Caravan LX minivan just launched in Venezuela is imported from DaimlerChrysler's Austrian assembly plant rather than North America, daily El Nacional reported.

D-C hopes to sell between 15 and 20 units per month of the fourth-generation 3.3-litre model on the Venezuelan market, El Nacional said, and regain segment leadership from Ford's Windstar.

The Grand Caravan has sold 1,300 units in Venezuela since a previous generation model was launched in 1992. The new Jeep Cherokee (Liberty) will be introduced in a few months, the newspaper added.
