Toluca to supply EU?

by David Zatz on

The Jeep Compass is being built in Toluca (quite possibly, production has already started). While the United States is the major target of the plant, it was redesigned to deal with global distribution, and may supply Europe as well — even though the closely related Jeep Renegade is already made in Italy.

If heavy tariffs are imposed on trade with Mexico, Sergio Marchionne said they would likely close their Mexican plants — but that’s unlikely to apply to Toluca, which is a fairly flexible plant that could make several products for Mexico and Europe alike.

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.
