Thank you -- Well Chrysler is storm pretty well under its new owner Fiat but the Fiat brand has been facing some big problems especially overseas.
Today Fiat is rolling out three new models look they are still high functioning and it's -- the LA auto show Jeff Flock is there with the head of Fiat North America Jeff.
And I showed you the five door here is the electric Fiat 500 -- to -- who -- the head of Fiat in the USA.
Said you just said to me this is a huge -- -- -- -- this is a huge day for us we've been in the market for less than two years now and now we're coming back after less than two years and we're launching five new products here on stage at LA today you five new products -- new products now we're launching today the -- version of the -- -- which has been a huge success -- relaxing the 500 people battery electric.
We're watching look at that we're launching the sport version which is out of the -- just over on the side of the sport version of people better electric.
There weren't watching the 500 Al today which is -- five door there we're looking at right -- and then we're launching the tracking version of the -- our health as well.
You can imagine -- David because you know -- it has been following nest Fiat around the world essential I mean Europe is not a great place to be sell cars right now.
The US actually in the US has been doing extremely well the market is really adopted to the brand you know we're not brand new but -- are coming back to the country and it's really -- not -- California sweet 5% -- business and we see that -- a -- and the future because things were California.
Spread across the rest of the country so the success there is really started to grow across the country people are afraid of that as a matter fact we thirty echo the plot had -- -- as some people second -- -- -- it's too small liking getting in and -- need more room.
This answers that question so the five door is a perfect complement to our sure it's only twenty.
Six inches bigger than the 500 it's still technically -- besides car but -- -- volume is increased 42%.
Which means the interior size of this car.
Is so efficient it's as large as an.
Something like the Chrysler 300 which people perceived to be a very large -- -- this has the same ensure your bottom.
And -- segment size package.
It's still Libya so we had to make sure it's still fun to drive so.
It looks great but it also has the upper are -- and so it's gonna -- zero to 168 point 52.
Symptoms consider important guy because and a -- your Marchionne.
Cares a lot about this market doesn't put a guy in charge of Fiat in the US.
An import market like there's -- -- pretty sharp sell and Europe doesn't give you like three different jobs to do that you've got through four other titles we we don't sleep well.
I don't -- great opportunity -- given its otherwise you've got in the US and -- the most important question how much how much is that carjacked.
Oh yeah how much justice of our -- we haven't announced -- yet but it'll be it'll be extremely competitive in the market.
Regionally competitive -- -- -- of S were gonna do you know about the electric anything -- -- now expressing an -- today the devil's in the details but we'll get -- -- Thanks very February and march -- -- -- --
