    Jeep’s Italian parent company Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has also already reached the 25,000 units production milestone for the Compass, as the India made SUV model is getting exported to international markets. FCA India’s Ranjangaon production facility had witnessed a whopping investment of $280 million, as this plant is the global production hub for the right-hand drive Jeep Compass. The local manufacturing of the Jeep Compass in India along with good localization level of 65 per cent made it possible for the company to price the product very attractively, while offering the world-class quality that the Jeep brand is famous for. The Jeep Compass is the first ever product from this iconic American SUV brand to have been locally manufactured in India. Jeep India also exports the Compass to right-hand drive international markets including Japan and Australia.

    In order to celebrate the success of the Jeep Compass, Jeep India has announced the 'Jeep 4x4 Month' program that has begun on 4th of April and will last till 30th of April. As part of this program Jeep is encouraging the new prospective buyers of the Compass who are at present considering buying or those who have already booked a 4x2 variant to upgrade to the Limited 4x4 model with the payment of just additional Rs. 50,000.

It is the company’s endeavor to take every opportunity to help the compass owners accomplish their aspiration.

    Flynn also added by saying that that Jeep India has already delivered more than 6000 units of the Jeep Compass in the first quarter of this year.
