Mopar going global with dealer diagnostics

by David Zatz on

Pietro GorlierThe Mopar division of Chrysler is going global with dealer diagnostics systems, according to Mopar CEO Pietro Gorlier. In a chat with Allpar on Monday, Mr. Gorlier discussed the new WiTech system, which allows for wireless connections to Chrysler and Fiat vehicles. This not only provides for faster and more convenient diagnostics, but it lets dealers buy generic computers and install Mopar software on them, saving money. Gorlier noted,

I am in charge of service and parts for the whole Fiat and Chrysler partnership. So that means that we are taking the Mopar brand globally to support both Fiat and Chrysler. …

Mopar is global and is the natural integration point of the two operations for the simple reason that when you have a Dart, it is sharing components with Alfa, from an after sales standpoint you need to be integrated. You need to get out from the doubt of whether that is an Alfa part, or a Chrysler part, that is a Mopar part. As Mopar we support all the brands of the combined corporation.

Diagnostically, … with the WiTech, we have become the supplier of diagnostic equipment for Fiat so that all our dealers across the globe will have the same diagnostic system. So that you can drop into the dealership with whatever model you want.
