JEEP had a special sales month in Europe and in China too: more than 10000 Jeeps (75odd% of which are Renegades, lots of Grand Cherokees too, especially in Germany) sold in Europe in September. AND: over 10000 of just the locally-made Cherokee in China, plus 3400+ Renegades, sold in China in september 2016. AND: Jeep is only now beginning to launch the model, the also-India-bound new Compass, that will play well and strong in the largest cuv/suv segment (price and size wise) in Europe, China as well as the USA+Canada+Middle-East. i.e., There will be large volumes assured (9-10k at a low minimum, most likely in China, and 3to7k in Europe?), especially in China where the old, dated Compass was a very well-known nameplate and was a great seller until last year, despite being imported and higher-priced than the new localized one. This last will launch there in November, and will be offered with the t-jet (165 hp, 250Nm) in combination with the 9-speed transmission, in one of its powertrain formats. i.e., chances are that India too could get that offering, and not just the 2litre diesel mjd2+9-speed. Which imo would be great, since that should mean the petrol variant, at least, could have prices well-below 20 lakhs ex-showroom, maybe? Since the 9-speed is being localized, made-in-Ranjangaon, even if this version of the t-jet has to be imported whole? btw, the Cherokee is getting a China-special long-wheelbase version there, a 5+2 seater, too in 2017, a model that could be exported in whole or part back-to-the-usa, with a different suspension etc, as a Chrysler-branded pretty-plush softroader/cuv (not 's'uv.) Remains to be seen whether JEEP can repeat in India its come-from-nowhere but yet leverage the 'good historic/heritage name' of JEEP to grow a lot, and very quickly, as it has in Europe for the last few years, in China in a lot less than 2 years, with tons of pentup further large growth just awaiting all-new models like the c-suv/new Compass or the all-new 2018 Wrangler family, the 2018 all-new Grand Cherokee, the 2019 all-new Grand Wagoneer, and of course the India/emerging-markets-special a/b-suv (Renegade clone?) too.
