WINDSOR, Ont., May 6 (Reuters) - Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne said the company’s next-generation Ram pickup truck will go on sale by January 2018.
Speaking to reporters at the FCA plant in Windsor, Ontario, Marchionne also said the company will cease production of the Chrysler 200 midsize sedan by the end of this year or the beginning of 2017. Previously he had said the company would stop making the light-selling sedan, but not when the company would stop making it.
Marchionne said FCA continues to look for a manufacturing partner to continue to build the Chrysler 200 as well as the compact Dodge Dart sedan. (Reporting by Bernie Woodall; Editing by Chizu Nomiyama)
