Last week we'd heard rumblings of some kind of an announcement involving the Dodge Hornet sub-compact (picture gallery for a reminder below) to come at the Detroit Auto Show, although we never confirmed it. However, Chrysler Group veep o' talking Jason Vines is confirming today DaimlerChrysler's chosen Chinese manufacturer Chery (pending board approval) to build B-segment cars for the German-American hybrid. I guess you can reasonably put one and one together — so go ahead and do that and let me know if you're also getting three. You're not? Oh wait, where was this calculator I'm using made again?
