Chrysler, Nissan Confirm New OEM Product Agreements

April 17, 2008

Chrysler LLC and Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., recently announced two new agreements for the supply of products between both companies. In January, Nissan agreed to supply Chrysler with a new car based on the Nissan Versa sedan for limited distribution in South America on an Original Equipment Manufacture (OEM) basis in 2009.

 

This new OEM exchange benefits both companies through range extension and the utilization of global manufacturing capacity.

Highlights of the new agreement:

  • Nissan will manufacture an all-new, fuel-efficient small car based on a unique Chrysler concept and design. This new segment entry for Chrysler will be sold in North America, Europe and other global markets in 2010, and manufactured at Nissan’s Oppama Plant in Japan.
  • Chrysler will manufacture a full-size pickup for Nissan. Based on a Nissan design, this truck will be manufactured at Chrysler’s Saltillo (Mexico) Assembly Plant. In order to accommodate this product, Chrysler will shift volume from Mexico to its U.S.-based assembly plants that produce pickup trucks. Sales of the pickup in North America will start in 2011.

 

Chrysler LLC conducted a media/analyst conference call with Tom LaSorda on April 14. Details for the call:

  • REPLAY of the conference call for U.S.:  1-800-925-2964

 

  • REPLAY of the conference call for outside the U.S.: 1-203-369-3519
