The almost-independent Chrysler has decided to consolidate production of the next-generation 300 at its Brampton, Ontario plant. 30,000 units for European consumption were slated to be built in Austria, but the merciful cancellation of the Imperial has left room for the right-hand-drivers at the Canadian plant. The ability to place a steering wheel on the right side will cost the folks from Auburn Hills a cool $500 million, on top of the $700 million already earmarked for the Brampton retooling. The high price of the Euro also factored into the decision to move 300 production to Canada.
