The first of Chrysler's next-generation minivans are rolling off an assembly line in Canada.

The new 2008 vans feature a wider look and a second-row seat that swivels so passengers can sit on two sides of a table.

President Tom LaSorda says the new vehicle is a sign of innovation from the company that invented the minivan.

Chrysler invested $511 million in the Windsor plant with hopes that the product will help it return it to profitability. But minivan sales have sputtered a bit in recent years. General Motors and Ford have exited the market.

Some analysts say the market will continue to decline as more crossover vehicles are introduced. But Chrysler sees a healthy demand in the future.
