Fiat said today it will begin building two new vehicles at its plant in Melfi, Italy, including a small Jeep that it will sell in the U.
The Italian automaker, which is Chrysler’s majority owner, said it expects production of the two vehicles to begin in 2014 after it invests 1 billion euros to prepare the plant.
“The first of the two new models will be a Jeep utility vehicle that represents the brand’s entrance into a new market segment,” Fiat said in a statement. “Melfi will be the only plant in the world to produce this model and, as for all Jeep products, it will be sold in markets worldwide.”
In addition to the new Jeep, Fiat said it also will also produce the new Fiat 500X at the plant in Melfi.Read Article
