Jeep Officially Announces Interest in China Production
According to Mike Manley, COO of Fiat and Chrysler in Asia, said that they have already gone through “very detailed conversations” with Guangzhou Automobile officials, and that "the volume opportunity for us is very significant [. . .] We're reviewing the opportunities within existing capacity (and) localizing the entire Jeep portfolio or some of the Jeep portfolio."
The plan is to initially produce 140,000 cars per year, with a final target of 500,000 units per year. Signs are good, though, with Chrysler reporting a 22% increase in its international sales up to September, when compared to last year’s numbers, reaching a total of 153,154 units sold - 117,189 were Jeeps.
