Fiat Laying The Groundwork For Chrysler's European Future

September 17, 2009

Fiat may have concerns about its new bride's housekeeping and checkbook-balancing skills, but it's making aggressive plans for Chrysler's future in Europe, and CEO Sergio Marchionne has announced that Euro-market Chryslers will soon be manufactured at an Italian facility Fiat acquired from Bertone. Chances are good that the vehicle produced there will be the euro replacement for the Chrysler 300C, which is also going to be used as the basis of a new near-premium Lancia. So VW is designing Euro cars for Americans, and Fiat is designing American cars for Europeans? We love that kind of symmetry. [AutoNews, sub reqd]
