|The Toledo Blade is reporting that Toledo might not be the only assembly point for the Jeep Wrangler in the near future. DaimlerChrysler's Chinese partner, Chery Automobile Co. is gearing up to begin production on a small Chrysler vehicle that would be available for sale worldwide.|
"That would actually be kind of a logical thing to do," said David Cole, an analyst with the Center for Automotive Research in Ann Arbor.
"If I were Chery that would be quite a plum. One of the reason to do a small car deal would be if you could get access to some of Chrysler's other products, like the Wrangler. It would really not surprise me if those discussion were taking place. It would be very logical."
