Interesting editorial...talking about what we already know; Chrysler is in a heap of trouble (especially if the minivan is the bright spot); which is a shame. They cite Peugeot as a high end mainstream brand (which is what Chrysler strives to be) -so there might be products there...but wow, talk about too little too late.

I feel for this guy. He's actually a pretty capable leader - who's talents have been completely squandered by FCA. I know he's not leaving due to the above reasons - but hopefully he lands on his feet.

When he lead Chrysler Canada, he did great things for marketing / reach / messaging to consumers. You could tell in interviews at times that he was frustrated w/ some of the decisions being made he didn't agree with. I could see him doing REALLY well in a mass market brand...

Despite Coronavirus Covid-19, Carlos Tavares and John Elkann intend to accelerate the project of fusion between their two enterprises, they dismiss the rumours about any problems caused bt the worldwide crisis(there was rumour about postponed fusion but also about cancellation) ;)

Apprently next month(maybe 17th june)the EU(Brussels)will give - or not -the green light to PSA and FCA for their future merger :)

Italian press reporters imagine the 2022 Alfa Romeo and Lancia compact SUVs who would share platforms & engines with the Peugeot 2008(and new generation Opel/Vauxhall Mokka) :D

I suspect the Alfa could originate with someone like Autocar, a UK publication anyway.
Doesn't look too bad, but press predictive renderings tend to err on the cautious and conservative side.
The Lancia though needs to be miles wide of the mark. It's a proud and historic marque that is as good as dead. Any future Lancia needs to be dripping in character (and I don't just mean shallow styling cues).

So Group Stellantis :confused:

To provide some context to the post above: the new name of the company is Stellantis (effectively replacing the FCA and PSA corporate names):

This should be good.
