SEOUL, Sept 16 Asia Pulse - The South Korean unit of U.S. carmaker Chrysler LLC said Tuesday it will start selling its new luxury sedans and sports utility vehicles in South Korea this month.
Chrysler Korea plans to limit the sale of its premium sedan 300C SRT 8 and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 8 SUV to 50 units each, the company said in a statement.
"As the SRT models are produced in small quantities worldwide, we are planning to limit sales in South Korea," Chrysler Korea said.
The 300C SRT 8 and Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 8 SUV are expected to sell at a price of 898 million won (US$78,633) and 82.9 million won, Chrysler Korea said.
The 300C SRT 8 can reach a top speed of 265 kilometers per hour, while the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 8 SUV goes from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in about four seconds, the company said.
