The FCA Group will invest more than $200 million in its plant in Tychy, Poland, where new hybrid and electric Jeep, Fiat and Alfa Romeo models will be built. The investment will involve the expansion and modernization of the FCA Poland plant and will last several years.
The goal is to start serial production of the first of three new passenger car models for the group’s brands in the second half of 2022. The announced Jeep, Fiat and Alfa Romeo cars will be manufactured using the most advanced drive systems, including all-electric drive.
The announcement of FCA’s investment in the Tychy factory was sealed with a symbolic handover of the decision to grant public aid to the FCA Group by the Katowice Special Economic Zone (KSEZ). The granted support concerns the creation of favorable conditions for the implementation of the planned investment by providing FCA with the possibility of taking advantage of tax reliefs in the field of corporate income tax (CIT).
