Chrysler Moving Assembly Of Chrysler 300 From Austria To Ontario, Also It'll Get A Diesel Engine

The group soon-to-be-formerly the 'merican side of the German-American hybrid confirmed today they'll be moving production of the 300 series sedan from a Magna International owned plant in Graz, Austria to the Brampton, Ontario plant in 2010. The plan will push up the new generation of the model by one year so as to coincide with the production shift. Also, they'll be dropping $1.2 billion on vehicle development and retooling costs so the plant can build both left-hand and right-hand drive models — oh, and drop diesel CRD engines into them. Sounds like some torque-y fun if you ask us. [via thestar.com]
