A made-in-India Jeep will be launched for the Indian market next year. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) announced that they will begin manufacturing the upcoming SUV in our country in 2017.

FCA is tight-lipped about any other specifications of the new SUV. However, they have confirmed that the new vehicle's local production will start next year at its Ranjangaon facility near Pune. At present, the carmaker is planning to extend their reach by opening new distribution outlets in India. By the end of this year, Jeep will have 10 new facilities across nine cities in our country.

Kevin Flynn, President and Managing Director, FCA India said, "We have invested US$280 million in our facility at Ranjangaon, near Pune, to mobilise our localisation strategy. We are on track with our plans to manufacture and roll out an all-new, premium Jeep SUV from our plant in 2017."

Currently, FCA India is selling the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Grand Cherokee through the CBU route. By next year, these cars will be joined by its India-made sibling. Thankfully, local production of this new SUV will help the company to launch the car at a competent price. Also by 2017, the expanded dealer network will not just help in the sales, but after-sales services as well. This should help the carmaker to gradually strengthen their foothold in India.
