We already know that the current Renegade is the first Jeep built outside the US. The smallest of Jeep`s is born in Fiat`s Melfi plant, south of Italy. But as Renegade wants to be a global model, Jeep wanted to produce the new Renegade also in Asia.
This is why we can see the Jeep Renegade rolling off the assembly line at the new Guangzhou plant of GAC Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
The launch marks another milestone for the company following the announcement and implementation of local production for the Jeep Cherokee, which began at the GAC FCA Changsha plant on October 19, 2015.
The GAC FCA Guangzhou plant is located within the manufacturing base of the GAC Group’s passenger vehicles in the Panyu District, Guangzhou. As a joint effort between GAC and FCA, the facility was built with production capacity to build 160,000 vehicles a year.
The factory includes four workshops for stamping, welding, painting and general assembly, respectively, as well as an independent Quality Assurance (QA) center.
The presales of the locally produced Jeep Renegade will begin at the Beijing Motor Show in late April 2016.
