Chrysler and GAZ are negotiating about production of Dodge Caliber

The american corporation Chrysler is negotiating with the Group GAZ about the organization of assembly of Dodge Caliber at the capacities of Gorkovskij car factory. As the resources of RBK report, it is planned to place the production at capacities, where now the Volga cars are output. This will be a big units assembly out of automotive sets, delivered from USA. It is planned to assembly nearly 400 cars Dodge Caliber until the end of 2008. As the analysts of AUTOSTAT note, Dodge Caliber is the most popular car of the concern Chrysler in Russia. During seven months of this year there were sold 2166 of these cross overs, the growth of sales constituted 125%. The brand Dodge itself is also a leader by popularity among brands of Chrysler in Russia. 49, 6% of sales account for it. However, on totals of seven months of 2008 the make is only on the 32nd place by volume of sale (2806 cars). Chrysler has already reported that they hope to improve the situation on account of local assembly.
In opinion of experts, the start of production Dodge Caliber could be evidence of enlargement of cooperation with Chrysler. The Group GAZ purchased its production assets of Sterling Heights Automotive Plant and the licence on production of cars on the platform Chrysler. So, Chrysler can become the strategic partner of the Group GAZ. However, the russian company accentuates that the project of output of Dodge Caliber is a tactical one and this does not mean that the group has defined the strategic partner. The other candidate for partnership with GAZ is GM. Its main advantage is an inexpensive korean model range of Chevrolet. That is why the analysts think that partnership with General Motors is more preferable for GAZ, which wants to develop the production of a modern car under the brand Volga on the foreign platform in volume until 300 thsd cars.
