TORINO, Italy, March 31 Fiat Chrysler
is continuing talks with Russia on a possible collaboration that
could see the company setting up a new plant there to produce
Jeeps and light commercial vehicles, its Chief Executive Sergio
Marchionne said on Monday.
"Russia continues to be a market of strategic relevance,"
Marchionne told a shareholders' meeting.
"The talks with the Russian Federation and Sberbank
are continuing. We expect that the segment produced
there will include Jeeps and light commercial vehicles ... it
could include a locally-based plant."
