DETROIT (AP) -- Chrysler LLC says it set a first-quarter record for sales outside North America.
The automaker said Tuesday its international sales rose 9 percent to 57,346 vehicles.
Chrysler saw the biggest jump in China, where it launched a locally built Sebring sedan last month. Russia was the fastest-growing European market.
The company's best-selling vehicle outside North America is the Dodge Caliber small car.
Chrysler says sales outside North America amount to 9 percent of all sales. That's far less than General Motors Corp. or Ford Motor Co., which sell more than half their vehicles overseas.
Chrysler wants to double its sales outside North America by 2012.
