I don't think it is going to employ many Americans. Most or all are going to be built in Mexico with the 1/2 ton Ram moving in 2011.I think it is a good Idea. By the way is sounds Chrysler will get two samll cars from Fiat and two more from the Nissan deal. This is a way to keep americans employed and boost chryslers small car image.
Remember the Hornet concept from a few years ago. It was a sweet looking small car. By the way it looks it will almost be able to fit right on the Fiat 500 (Same class as the Mini Cooper) wheel base. From what I'm reading the 500 out performs the Mini.
Also this deal gives Chrysler a foothold outside of the US with all of Fiats plants. That is another thing Chrysler has wanted for years.
I just hope Cerburs buy the last 20% from Benz and not Fiat. I will not be happy if that happens.
