As the Jeep® brand celebrates its 80th anniversary in 2021, it is also celebrating five years of Compass production in Brazil. The globally popular compact C-SUV made its production launch at the Goiana (PE) assembly plant, before reaching the rest of the world. Since then, the Compass has played an important role in the Brazilian market coming second to only its architecture-mate the Jeep Renegade.
While the Compass is built at five different plants around the globe (Brazil, China, India, Italy, and Mexico), the Compass has hit a milestone of 61,000 units sold in the Brazilian marketplace in 2021.
Launched in October 2016, the Compass (M1) arrived in the Brazilian market, it was the leader of SUVs in the country with 49,194 units sold during 2017. In 2018, it secured its leadership in the category with 60,285 units sold. For 2019, there were 60,368 units sold and in 2020, 52,973 units left dealers despite the pandemic. Now with over a month left before the end of 2021, the model has already achieved more sales than the previous year.
“We have no doubt that Compass is a Jeep success story in Brazil. With the launch of the [2022 Jeep Compass], in April, which has already shown itself to be a winner since its pre-sales,” commented Everton Kurdejak, Director of Commercial Operations at Jeep in Brazil.
