According to Automotive News, Chrysler is considering striking a deal with Chinese automaker Chery to build a new small Dodge or Chrysler for the international market. A meeting between Chery President Yin Tongyao and Chrysler executives is rumored for Friday, May 5.

If Chery does end up assembling a mini-Chrysler product, U.S. car buyers won't see it. But Chrysler is talking to other companies, including Volkswagen, about building a U.S.-market small car. Whichever automaker gets the nod will have to provide a proven small car platform for Chrysler's design.
