Chrysler said that total sales climbed to 104,819 units from 79,010 units in May last year, for a 33% increase from May of last year. It is the second straight monthly gain.
It was the first time monthly sales topped the 100,000 threshold since March last year.
"May was another positive sign as sales momentum continues to build for Chrysler Group, exceeding the 100,000 unit threshold for the first time in more than a year," said Fred Diaz, Chrysler's president and chief executive.
"The company continues to show improvement each month, with May being our strongest month this year, exceeding overall industry growth for the second month in a row," he said.
