Fiat Chrysler, PSA Extend Van Partnership
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV and PSA Group have agreed to continue joint production of large commercial van at FCA’s factory in Sevel, Italy.
The plant makes vans sold as the Citroen Jumper, Fiat Ducato and Peugeot Boxer. Under terms of the extension, the plant will add Opel/Vauxhall iterations of the vans and hike its annual output this year by 50,000 units to about 350,000 vans, according to the partners.
PSA and Fiat have been co-producing vans for 40 years. The facility, which currently employs about 6,200 people, describes itself as Europe’s largest and most flexible commercial vehicle assembly complex.
