Chrysler Canada says vehicle sales rose by 2 per cent in March over last year, boosted by record sales of its Jeep Cherokee and Ram Trucks.

The auto maker says it sold 24,649 vehicles, also due to sales of the Chrysler Town & Country.

Sales of Ram Trucks were up 5 per cent, while Jeep sales increased by 41 per cent compared with figures from March, 2013.

Minivan sales of the Chrysler Town & Country came in at 1,111 units, up 40 per cent from the number sold in the same month last year.

Chrysler was the first auto maker to report Canadian March sales Tuesday, while General Motors said the release of its sales figures would be delayed several hours "due to a computer systems issue that impacted dealer sales reporting."

Meanwhile, Nissan says its latest sales numbers amounted to 10,470 units, an increase of 23.7 per cent from last year. The Nissan brand sold 9,404 units, while the Infiniti brand increased 4.1 per cent year-over-year.
