Fiat and Chrysler could build seven models in North America under their proposed alliance, according to sources who have seen the product-sharing agreement.
Four of those cars would be sold under Chrysler brands, one as a Fiat and two as Alfa Romeos.
The seven models would be built at Chrysler plants in North America and sold through selected Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep dealerships, the sources say.
The plan includes vehicles on four Fiat platforms, from the minicar to the upper medium segments.
The two companies considered the timing and the volumes of their proposed product sharing in meetings that lasted from January 23 to January 30.
Production of the first vehicles is expected to commence in mid 2011, people familiar to the matter told Automotive News Europe.
