Perceiving the United States’ plan to increase the federal fuel economy standards to 54.5 mpg by 2025, the Chrysler and Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne stated that automakers aren’t afraid of that.
The government has indicated that there is strong support for an improved plan that will turn at 54.5 mpg. However the government would not make any official announcement until later this year on future fuel economy standards. As it shown on vehicle window stickers, the fuel economy standard established by government is not quite the same with the combined figure of the EPA, which would be around 35 mpg.
According to a report from a radio station WJR- AM, Marchionne stated that in just under 15 years, fulfilling the intended standard fuel consumption is very doable. He added that his automaker would have enough time to control the ongoing and future technology in order to fulfill the standards requirements, considering of what the company has created in its flagship Chrysler 300 that is figured at 31 mpg.
Chrysler is managing to introduce a U.S.-built car capable to push 40 mpg on the highway later this year, as part of the demands arranged by the government during the automaker’s bankruptcy. Since that time, the highest Chrysler car in EPA testing is the Fiat 500 at 30/38. The Dodge Caliber is the highest rated vehicle developed by Chrysler prior to its control by Fiat at 24/32 mpg.
According to ebullient CEO, Sergio Marchionne will possibly leave his position by 2016. However in Auburn Hills a few people may look forward to his departure from the automaker.
At the Management Briefing Seminars held in Traverse city, Michigan, Marchionne said to journalist gathered that by 2015 or might be a year later there would be a Chrysler after him and about the future of the automaker’s plan would be up to that guy after him.
