'China plant could make 100,000 Jeeps a year' says Fiat CEO


Milan, January 17 - Fiat and Chrysler CEO Sergio
Marchionne said Thursday that plants in China could be putting
out 100,000 vehicles a year under the iconic American Jeep brand
by mid-2014 through a partnership with Chinese carmaker GAC.
"In China, with GAC, 100,000 vehicles could be produced
every year," he said at an automotive event in Milan. "The plant
is ready and could potentially start production within 18
The deal with GAC (Guangzhou Automobile Group) was
announced Tuesday.
In a statement, the automakers said that "production in
China" was limited to vehicles for the "Chinese market only".
Building Jeeps in China made international headlines during
the 2011 American election season when Republican presidential
candidate Mitt Romney falsely suggested that Chrysler would
transfer all Jeep production from Ohio to China.
The Chinese automaker already builds the Fiat Viaggio and
distributes in China imported models such as the trendy Fiat
500, Freemont and Bravo.
The plant, located in the Changsha, south-central China,
will eventually produce up to 300,000 vehicles under Fiat and
Chrysler brands.
