Chrysler Group LLC today issued its preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter (Q4) and total year 2010.

The Company posted a Modified Operating Profit of $198 million in Q4 2010 and $763 million for total year 2010. The Q4 2010 operating performance, in comparison to Q3 2010, was driven primarily by improved mix and pricing, industrial efficiencies and improved quality, more than offset by lower volumes, increased advertising investment and higher launch costs.

Sergio Marchionne, Chief Executive Officer of Chrysler Group LLC stated, “As Chrysler Group’s brand displays at the Detroit auto show confirmed, the Company has lived up to its promise to launch 16 all-new or significantly refreshed vehicles in the past 12 months. All of these vehicles bear testimony to Chrysler’s rebirth. Given the positive comments we have received to date, it can safely be said that what Chrysler delivered last year, on both the product and financial fronts, surpassed many expectations.

“However, our job is not yet done. We have a lot of work ahead to fulfill our five-year business plan objectives,” said Marchionne.
