Chrysler to make cuts in fleet sales in '08

Chrysler has looked deep into it soul and decided to join the General and FoMoCo in an attempt to reduce its reliance on fleet sales. Chrysler's Vice Chairman, Jim Press (that still doesn't sound right), alluded to the reduction during a conference call regarding December sales figures and said, "you have to stay out of the 30-percent range and into the 20s." Where in "the 20s" was unspecified, but with vehicle sales expect to continue their decline this year, any reduction of income could hurt the automaker. However, Press went on to say that he expects a "very small increase" in retail sales during '08 and a plan is underway to increase the value-per-dollar quotient of Chrysler's brands by offering more features for less cash.
