Chrysler 100 Axed In Line Up Re-Evaluation?



With the rising popularity of crossovers and SUVs, automakers are allocating more and more of their resources to developing new models for these segments. Models that are neither of these body styles are being scrapped and allpar thinks the Chrysler 100 Sedan may be next on the chopping block.

Back in 2014, Chrysler came out with a new product plan for several new model debuts between 2014 and 2018. The new model lineup included a new compact sedan named 100 and it was set to be revealed in 2016 along with two crossovers and a mid-size CUV in 2018, and a full-size CUV in 2017.

This compact sedan was supposed to be an entry level model slotting under the 200 and 300 but it could be axed due to the falling sedan sales and the ever increasing crossover sales numbers. Last year, Chrysler informed their investors about the upcoming re-evaluation of its lineup and the 100 may be cut to make room for a possible Dodge Journey replacement and the new Pacifica minivan.

Already, we’re seeing Chrysler cut back on their sedan spending with 1,420 production workers laid off at Michigan plants and these workers were building parts for the Chrysler 200 and the vehicle itself. We’ve also had a large auto shows take place in the last few months (Geneva, New York, etc) with no sign of the Chrysler 100.


For now we’ll just have to wait for the 100 compact sedan to appear at a later auto show or an official announcement from Chrysler.

What we should do is keep an eye on what other car makers have going on since some shown interest in this segment but with that, hesitation. Lexus wanted to come out with a city car, then there was Infiniti, I think even Cadillac wanted to get into the space but showed very little indication. If those other car makers act, expect Chrysler to follow.

That's what i was thinking, it could just be on hold. Maybe after evaluating how the market is and what the changing needs of consumers are, that launching it sometime soon would be too soon, probably contributing to the products failure?

in other news BMW is coming out with a 1 series sedan initially for China and they might be sending it to other markets around the world, but there's no confirmation of that happening just yet.

so as we can see, the segment is heating up and something will come out of this eventually, just have to really think if its worth waiting for or not.
