Chrysler to Boost Production of PT Cruiser

In response to continued demand for the Chrysler PT Cruiser, the Chrysler Group has decided to increase the output of its Toluca assembly plant in Mexico by 80,000 units annually.

The company will invest $300 million to increase output by 80,000 units at Toluca beginning in the autumn of 2002. However, more PT Cruisers will become available this summer because all of Toluca's current production capacity of 180,000 vehicles will be allocated to North American markets.
