While FCA’s (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) line-up in India might be limited to a handful of products, it’s soon going to be widened with the inclusion of the Jeep brand, which is expected to make an entry to the Indian market following the 2016 Auto Expo. Not just that, the products can be made and exported from India at a later stage.
The vehicles coming to India will be the Wrangler, the Grand Cherokee, and the Grand Cherokee SRT. They will be imported as CBUs while a local assembly/manufacture will take place later on, reports Overdrive. The company will also use the Ranjangaon plant in India to manufacture Jeep products for other right-hand-drive markets, too. An official announcement regarding the entry (under FCA) and the plans to manufacture is yet to be made.
But that’s not to say Jeep isn’t doing anything. Jeep’s Indian website went live a couple of weeks ago, and the prospective buyers were shown the upcoming products at an event in Bangalore recently. The rest of us will need to wait for the 2016 Auto Expo next month for that.
