Fiat/Chrysler/GAC venture set to expand China co-operation

Fiat Group Automobiles, Chrysler Group International and Guangzhou Automobile Group (GAC) have signed a framework agreement to expand their co-operation on passenger car manufacturing and sales in China.

The joint venture between the three companies manufactures the Fiat Viaggio and distributes imported models such as the Fiat 500, Freemont and Bravo in China.

Under the framework agreement, operations will be expanded to allow the localisation of more models from the Fiat portfolio for the Chinese market, followed by Chrysler’s Jeep brand.
