CHRYSLER MINIVAN SALES TOP 500,000 MARK FOR YEAR

 HIGHLAND PARK, Mich., Dec. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- In its most successful year ever for minivan sales, Chrysler Corporation (NYSE: C) reported today that North American sales topped the half-million mark with 13 selling days left in the calendar year.
 The 500,000 sales include the Dodge Caravan/Grand Caravan and Caravan C/V, Plymouth Voyager/Grand Voyager and Chrysler Town & Country.
 With sales running 19 percent over a year ago, it is projected that by year's end, Chrysler will surpass by 50,000 units its previous calendar-year high of 472,373 set in 1988.
 U.S. sales to date total 442,238 and Canadian sales are 59,010.
 Chrysler created a new market segment when it introduced the versatile vehicles in late 1983. The corporation sold 9,107 that year. Sales were in the 200,000-275,000 range the next three years, reached 350,000 in 1987 after a second assembly plant was added and climbed into the 400,000-plus range the next four years.
