Chrysler to restart Europroduction

by David Zatz on

Chrysler, which lost its Austrian joint venture plant to Daimler, will retain a European manufacturing base, as all but one of the unions involved agreed to make concessions at Italy’s Mirafiori plant. The plant will be run as a joint venture, with Chrysler and Fiat investing in proportion to the number of vehicles each will produce. The plant will create new Jeeps and Alfa Romeos starting around late 2012; Fiat expects to build up to 280,000 vehicles a year, both cars and SUVs, there.

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades. He has been quoted by the New York Times, the Daily Telegraph, the Detroit News, and USA Today. Before making Allpar a full-time career, he was a consultant in organizational psychology.
