That would mean manufacturing as well as most r&d development almost entirely IN china....to stand any sort of chance in a VERY competitive market whose easy money boom years for foreign firms are long over.
Still: would seem essential for Chrysler brand in terms of sustainable financial viability.
But then: who is ready for Chrysler as 'America's Import....'(the tag line from the bob dylan advert for the c 200).... FROM china?!
Still China is essential for Chrysler if only for reduced ev techy r&d engineering and supply chain sourcing etc, given the sheer scale of bev and digital techy stuff there (assuming that any new chryslers will emphasize such.) Also good scope for cost and riak sharing with foxconn say or chinese jv partner or say samsung or...tesla china? Apple in china? Etc
China is essential for Chrysler? Um, no.
China and the US are the two markets in the world that can sustain a single brand by themselves (please no nonsense about the EU being a single market). Stellantis needs Chrysler in China, Chrysler does not have to be in China (or Europe) to be sustainable.I mean China is one of the largest automobile markets in the world, so why wouldn’t it be?
