Chery and Fiat kissing in a tree
It did actually seem like a slow news week from Thursday until Monday, now it seems all the big car manufacturers were busy doing boardroom deals with each other and didnt bother announcing anything until this morning. bah!
Anyway, it seems that Chery and Fiat are planning to go one step further than having Chery supply engines to Fiat – this alone will be 100,000 units per year. Details are sketchy but Fiat is saying it will be a strategic alliance Will Chery cars appears on the chic streets of Italy any time soon? It looks like oddly named Gonow has already beaten them to it, but with an old CKD Rav 4 copy, the smart money would be on Chery doing well.
We wonder what the implications on the Chery and Nanjing Autos would be? Nanjing and Fiat already have a joint venture agreement in China to produce a few Fiat hatchbacks in China. hmmm.
