Fiat may build the Fiat 500 at a Chrysler plant in Mexico (where it's on sale) and the car's engine at a plant in Trenton, Michigan. Also possible is a higher caliber Fiat-based compact for the U.S. [WSJ]
I hope those crazy folks at Fiat don't build a car with a MANUAL TRANSMISSION, because, you know, they don't sell. I mean 8% of the market is equal to 0%, right? Who needs about 10% of all buyers. Forget them.
Oh, and DON'T SELL DIESELS. The take reate for VW Sportwagen diesels was only 81% in June this year. So obviously no one in North America wants diesels either.
