The Made-in-India Jeep Compass was launched by FCA India at a starting price of Rs 14.95 lakh (ex-Delhi). The Jeep Compass is built in FCA’s joint venture manufacturing facility in Ranjangaon, near Pune, and is made of 65 per cent locally sourced components. Deliveries of the vehicle will begin on August 6, 2017. The Company is set to expand its dealer network to 60 by the end of this calendar year, the company said in a statement.
“We decided to advance the price announcement so that potential customers can finalise their purchase decisions. We will start retails on August 6. Analysing our pre-bookings data it has made sense for us to prioritise the deliveries of diesel manual transmission variants. We will deliver petrol automatic transmission variants closer to Diwali,” said Kevin Flynn – President and Managing Director, FCA India.
