Carmaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles plans to stop car production A-class.
This was announced by FCA CEO Mike Manley, adding that it is likely to happen “soon”.
The intention of management Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is likely to be associated with the model Panda. It is considered to be the best-selling citicar in Europe in the first half of this year was issued more than 105 thousand of these machines.
Panda is available for seven years, and the concept of development of the company presented at the Geneva motor show in March, would be replaced by this model in 2021, but it is possible that the plans have shifted.
The head of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles said that the company intends to transfer the clients on segment B (where the model Punto), which has higher margins.
A number of brands such as Ford and Vauxhall/Opel have already decided to close the production of city cars.
It is not excluded that is ready to replace Fiat Punto: the recent merger of FCA with the PSA Group will allow the Italian brand to access the platform, the new Peugeot 208 and Vauxhall Corsa.
And in 2020 the market needs to see the electric car Fiat 500e.
