The Jeep Compass turned out to be the game changer it was expected to be and the manufacturer certainly has its order books full in the country. Scaling a new height, Jeep India announced that the Compass has achieved a production milestone of 25,000 units in just seven months of launch.
The SUV was launched in the country last year and a competitive price tag along with the affinity for SUVs has certainly helped boom the model’s popularity. The Compass also managed to bag quite a few awards in India.
The Compass is produced at FCA’s Ranjangaon facility near Pune and is built with 65 per cent localisation. In fact, the Indian plant acts as a global production hub for right-hand drive versions of the Jeep Compass with the model being exported to a host of markets including Australia, Japan and the UK.
