Chrysler originally planned to have a replacement of its popular 300 sedan on the market by early 2011. Well, it seems like the Auburn Hills is now rushing to get the U.S. launch of its redesigned flagship sedan out sooner than it originally scheduled.
The Chrysler 300 was once a hot-selling model for the company but sales have now slipped. As part of a push to keep on track its ambitious turnaround plan, Chrysler now hopes to expedite the launch of the 300 sedan to November, three people familiar with the matter said.
Chrysler had a sluggish start this quarter and needs sales to increase significantly to meet its target of selling 1.1 million vehicles in the U.S. It’s 2010 goal in November 2009 was to break even this year.
