Today's historic day for the Jeep brand in India. It rolls out of the assembly lines at the Ranjangaon plant in the Maharashtra region, the first unit of the new Compass, SUV with which Jeep actually reaches the first fruits of the expected expansion in the emerging Asian market.
The factory will represent the global basis of the production of right-hand-drive versions of the Compass that will be exported to countries such as Japan and Great Britain, among others.
To adjust the Indian plant to the Jeep Compass debut, the FCA Group invested approximately 280 million dollars and in the project are included also engines always assembled at Ranjangaon.
Compass for India will be available with the 2.0 Multijet and 1.4 MultiAir engines.
