The 328 on which the 328JET is based was very advance in terms of having
a very light weight carbon composite fuselage and was in case designed
to be very fast for a turboprop to jet standards so that it could mix in
with jet landing patterns.  Compared to Embraers EMB135 it has a lower
cruise of M0.7 as opposed to M0.78 but compensates by having a faster
climb rate due to its low weight and wings.   Also there is a 44 seat
428JET growth option now.
