For the Chinese market. As I said earlier, if you're going to sell your products in China, you need to build them in China.

And do you suppose Jeep products will suddenly start selling in mass numbers doubling what they do NOW? So once Chinese production reaches acceptable levels, POOF goes US plant. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to see that one coming.

I think the article said Fiat was moving to China to make Jeeps for the asian market, including China. SOOO some jeeps that may have been made in the US will now be made in China and shipped to other asian markets.

Will thin not hurt the United Auto Workers?

Not really, George.

US-built products will be much more expensive than those from China, and therefore uncompetitive. I don't know how many US-built Jeeps China sells in Asia, but it can't be many. Likely these Chinese vehicles will be manufactured as "complete knock down" kits, with final assembly in the country where they're sold.

In other words, the Chinese-built vehicles don't compete with US-built ones because the US products have no chance of being imported into those countries.

Meanwhile, Chrysler is increasing Jeep production for the US market. And it's much more profitable to sell those vehicles in the US than try to ship them overseas.
