Hot on the heels of the
impending sale official sale
and Land Rover
and news that Fiat
is looking to start producing Alfa Romeo
vehicles in the U.S.
that Fiat would be interested in partnering up with the new Jaguar ownership to share rear-wheel-drive platforms for their high-end Alfa models. Tata and Fiat already have close ties, as Ratan Tata
, chairman of the Tata Group, is a member of Fiat's board and the two companies jointly produce engines
and transmissions in India
In addition to possible platform sharing between Jaguar and Alfa, Fiat is also interested in using the existing Jaguar and Land Rover dealer
base in the U.S. as a way to ease Alfa's re-entry the American market. Anything that helps get Alfa Romeo back in the U.S. is fine by us, but there are surely issues with selling what could possibly be competing brands from the same dealer lots.
