Fiat Chrysler promises to accelerate the emergence of new modelsDecember 28, 2019
In recent years, almost all automakers have been producing more and more new cars than ever. The Italian-American concern is going to significantly accelerate the production of its new cars
In the ever-changing automotive industry, speed and efficiency are key to success. Automakers are in a hurry to launch new or updated versions of their existing models on the market, as consumers continue to desperately need new cars.
In the Italian-American concern Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, the development and further production of new models can become much faster.
A new report by the foreign publication Detroit Free Press says FCA is reorganizing in the hope of streamlining the development process of its new vehicles. FCA CTO and Maserati Executive Chairman Harald Wester will lead the reorganization.
Reorganization occurs when car manufacturers prepare to release more new models per year than ever before. Free Press refers to a study conducted in June this year, in which it was recorded that automakers on average produce 40 new models per year. It is expected that this number will increase to 62 new models annually between 2020 and 2023.
FCA relies on the creation and development of greater coordination and cooperation between its various divisions, as a result of which the quality of products should improve and the time for developing new models should be reduced. According to FCA spokesman Eric Maine, the reorganization is not related to headcount, although there may be some reassignments for employees.
The auto industry may change in the next five to ten years even more than we can imagine. Autonomous and electric vehicles come into our lives, although they will remain exotic cars for a long time. Buyers are now buying crossovers with might and main – at the moment this is the solution for those automakers who seek to increase their profits.
