Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) is one of the major automobile manufacturers. Your training, as we know it today, dates back to 2014 when Fiat took control of Chrysler. Now the rumors point that there could be more developments in the group due to the debt drawn in the last few years. For this reason, FCA could be considering the sale of two of its main brands: Alfa Romeo and Maserati.
Another of which would also be in danger is Marelli and some of them, one of its brands of components, but as we say there’s still nothing confirmed by the official sources. The case is that FCA closed the third quarter of 2016, with low benefits and a debt is around 7,000 million dollars. In addition to this, in the united States until 1.4 million vehicles have had to be called to review by the airbag.
Since the ACF is under the command of Sergio Marchionne has tried to change its policy and obtain more profitability. One of the main strategies has been to enter fully in the world of the SUV. The Maserati Levante is already marketed and the Alfa Romeo Stelvio has already been presented and is expected to be a success in sales. What is still unclear is if it will be sufficient to retrieve the status of FCA.
Another of the strategies implemented has been the cessation of the production of models that report fewer benefits such as the Dodge Dart or the Chrysler 200. With the time and the sales of the new models we’ll see if FCA gets to recover and maintains both Alfa Romeo as a Maserati. While both wake up the old rumors of the past that say that the Volkswagen Group would be interested in Alfa Romeo.
