Chrysler is no longer selling vehicles in the UK.
A statement on the company's website says that "new Chrysler brand products are no longer available in the United Kingdom" and directs customers wanting a service department to its sister brand, Jeep.
In March, the Fiat-owned brand confirmed it would be withdrawing from the UK from 2017.
"Our dealers have formally been given 24 months notice, so the latest possible date that the firm will be operating in the UK will be 15 March 2017," a Chrysler spokesman told BusinessCar in March.
In 2014, the firm registered 1982 vehicles in the UK, 21% down on 2013's figure.
Chrysler did not make it into the top 30 fleet manufactures in 2014.
The 30th placed firm, Subaru achieved 854 fleet registrations last year, while Chrysler's sister brand Jeep hit 1761 registrations, up 81.9% on 2013's figure.
"There are a few [unsold] vehicles around. If anyone still wants to buy a new Chrysler, they still can, through a Jeep dealership, but we are still set to cease operating in 2017," a Chrysler spokesman told BusinessCar.
