Fiat Looks at China for Engines Supply

Nov. 24, 2006 – A “memo of understanding” was announced by Chery Automobile of China and Fiat- the Italian automaker for supplying petrol engines for Fiat cars that are assembled either in or outside China.

The two companies anticipate a yearly supply of over 1,00,000 (1.6 & 1.8-liter) engines. Sergio Marchionne, Fiat CEO, said that the two companies could extend the co-operation to power trains and other automotives. Also, the accord with Chery would provide them with an opportunity to further enhance the competitiveness of their product range in global markets.

The deal between the two giants is likely to be sealed be the end of this year (2006). Fiat CEO has recently formed an alliance with other suppliers and automakers. By forming this alliance the company has paved its path while stretching its realm to other international markets where its presence was negligible till now. Fiat is also willing to invest over 500 Million Euros in China during the years 2006-2010, as per the CEO of the company.
