TURIN, Italy, March 31 (Reuters) - Fiat-Chrysler will be able to produce more than six million cars a year by 2018, the chief executive of the Italian-U.S. car maker said on Monday.

"Within 2018, Fiat will be capable of making more than six million vehicles (per year)," Sergio Marchionne told journalists after a shareholder meeting in Turin.

Marchionne also said Fiat would not spin-off its stake in Italian publisher RCS Mediagroup ahead of a planned listing on Wall Street.
