Alliance Stellantis, which recently integrates the concerns of the PSA and FCA (Fiat Chrysler), decided on place of production of the first electric vehicle of the American brand Jeep. This car will do in Italy at the factory in Melfi, which is owned by Fiat, writes the Spanish newspaper Periodismo del Motor.
We are talking about a small SUV, which in size is smaller petrol models are the Renegade, which is now the youngest car brand. Edition The Drive thus claims that an electric Jeep will be built on the platform of the PSA group, which unites Peugeot, Citroen, DS and Opel.
The description fits only platform that produced electric crossover Peugeot e-2008, e Citroen-C4 and the new Opel Mokka-e.
This platform until now was used only for front-wheel-drive SUVs that the Jeep brand seems to be acceptable. So we can expect that the American brand of the chassis is developed, adding all-wheel drive and increased off-road performance.
Jeep electric car will also be released in America is still unknown.
