"Chrysler would tap Fiat’s experience building small and medium-sized cars to accelerate its own plans to bring out new front-wheel drive vehicles offering lower emissions, while Fiat may use Chrysler’s North American production and distribution network to introduce the Alfa Romeo brand and Fiat 500 minicar in the U.S.,Automotive News Europe reported today."

On CTV News this morning, it was announced in Italy by a Fiat VP that Fiat and Chrysler would sell through each others distribution networks in North America and Europe respectively, in exchange for Fiat taking a 35% stake in Chrysler. No mention of joint small car development or when it would happen. Sounds promising though...
