“A step in the right direction,” FCA CEO still looking for his own alliance.

by on Mar.07, 2017

FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne believes the GM/PSA deal for Opel portends a deal for Fiat Chrysler in the future.

The sale of Opel to French automaker PSA reverberated through the PALExpo convention center on the opening day of the Geneva Motor Show, a number of industry leaders saying they expect GM’s move to dump its long-troubled European brand will lead to a wave of new mergers and acquisitions.

That includes Sergio Marchionne, CEO of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, who has spent a number of years trying to line up a deal for his own company. General Motors’ decision to dump Opel, Marchionne said during a Geneva media roundtable, could improve the odds of FCA now finding a partner.

Ferrari Plans to Build More Cars by 2019

Filing reveals move to increase production numbers.

by on Oct.15, 2015

It's going to be a little easier to get a new Ferrari, as production numbers are going to rise 30%.

Luca di Montezemolo departed as the head of Ferrari partly because of his desire to keep a lid on production numbers and keep an air of exclusivity about the brand, and Sergio Marchionne disagreed. Montezemolo is gone and so is the production cap.

According to SEC filings for the Ferrari spin off, the company plans to raise production from 7,000 units annually to 9,000 by 2019: a 30% increase. Additionally, the Italian sports car maker plans to introduce a spate of new products during that time as well.

Jeep Will Keep Wrangler Production in Toledo, Add New Wrangler-Based Picked

But maker will relocate production of popular Cherokee model.

by on Sep.02, 2015

The question has been answered: Jeep is re-entering the truck market with the Wrangler-based truck.

After a long debate that put thousands of jobs at risk, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has decided to retain production of the next-generation Jeep Wrangler in Toledo, Ohio. And CEO Sergio Marchionne confirmed that the maker will add a long-rumored, Wrangler-based pickup to the Jeep line-up.

But Toledo did get one setback in its bid to maintain its long-standing role as Jeep’s ancestral home. FCA will now move production of the Cherokee model to another, as yet-unspecified plant. The compromise follows an intense round of negotiations by Toledo and Ohio officials who struggled to help the automaker reduce costs and update the Toledo plant to handle what will be a radically redesigned version of the ever-popular Wrangler.

“We found a solution that accommodates a variety of other interests to us because of the way in which we can move some product around,” Marchionne told trade publication Automotive News. “It doesn’t take a rocket scientist (to know) that the only way I can move around the Wrangler is to move it into the other Toledo plant.” (more…)
