Alfa 169 could share underpinnings with Chryslers and Dodges

The upcoming Alfa Romeo 169 will be based on a Dodge Charger platform and built in Canada, according to reports.

Analysts IHS Global Insight said the car will go into production in 2011 and cost $62,000 (£38,000) in the US.

The car’s platform sharing comes as a result of the alliance between Fiat and Chrysler, the US manufacturer’s 300 model sharing the same underpinnings as the Charger.

Global Insight reports that the Alfa 169 will be built at the Bramalea Production facility in Brampton, Ontario.

Analysts at the company also said the Fiat 500 will be produced in Toluca, Mexico, for sale in the United States beginning in July 2011.The 500 is expected to reach a sales volume of 25,000 units in 2015, it added.

A spokeswoman for Alfa Romeo said it was too early to comment on details of the 169.
