Jeep PH Will Start Sourcing Products from China


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has confirmed that Jeep Philippines will now start sourcing some of its products from Mainland China. This makes the Philippines the first overseas market for FCA’s Chinese operations.

The news was broken by GAC-FCA, FCA’s joint-venture with GAC Motor Co in a report to Automotive News.

GAC-FCA has started exporting vehicles since January 17, and as of March 31, 527 units of the Jeep Compass and Renegade have already been shipped.

Currently, the plant produces a total of four Jeep models. Aside from the Compass and Renegade, it also makes the Cherokee and Grand Commander.

Established in 2010, the GAC-FCA plant has a total annual capacity of 328,000 vehicles. After peaking in 2017 with 222,332 units sold, it saw annual sales in a steep decline. Exports to the Philippines will improve the utilization of the plant said state-owned GAC Motor.
