Chrysler Group will no longer publish monthly North American vehicle production reports, claiming it is not a good representation of the company's finances.

A Chrysler spokeswoman said today the company was now more global and that the monthly production "reflects only NAFTA production, [and] is only a snapshot of the total wholesale shipments on which the Company's financials are based."

No additional information as to why the company is ceasing the reports was provided.

Quarterly earnings calls will continue, where guidance on product shipments will remain a talking point.

Chrysler made up 15 percent of the North American production total for 2012 and 2013 and built 2,509,684 vehicles in 2013.

Chrysler joins General Motors in not disclosing monthly production numbers -- a move GM announced last June.
