O Chrysler Group announced this Tuesday (12/16) the change of the company’s name to FCA US, after it was created in October of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).
In a statement, FCA US indicated that the name change is effective immediately and that it does not affect the location of its headquarters, which will remain in the American city of Auburn Hills, or other aspects of its management. “The company remains proud of their shared heritage. FCA US continues to grow on the strong foundations first laid by Walter P. Chrysler in 1925, as well as Fiat’s rich heritage that began in 1899,” the company said.
+ “I have seen all kinds of conflicts, but our investment is long-term,” says Belini
FCA US will retain the group’s current brand names: Chrysler, Dodge, Ram and Jeep. The company also sells Fiat and Alfa Romeo cars in North America.
Chrysler Group, the name adopted in 2009 after leaving the suspension under the management of Fiat, was previously called Chrysler LLC (2007-2009), Daimler Chrysler AG (1998-2007) and Chrysler Corporation (1925-1998). The parent company FCA US, known since October as FCA NV, is the seventh largest car manufacturer in the world. It employs more than 77,000 people worldwide, although 96% of its workforce is concentrated in North America. In total, there are 36 factories: 23 in the United States, seven in Mexico and six in Canada.
