The first ever ‘Made-in-India’ Jeep Compass will be rolled out of the Ranjangaon assembly line near Pune on June 1, the parent Fiat India Automobiles Pvt. Ltd. (FIAPL) said on Tuesday.
Maharashtra chief minister Devendra Fadnavis will roll out the first locally-made Compass, around 23 months after the CM along with a high level delegation met senior Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) officials in June 2015 at the company’s headquarters in Auburn Hills, Michigan in the United States.
The delegation discussed FCA’s investment strategy in Maharashtra and reaffirmed the state government’s interest in strengthening ties with FCA, besides offering full support to the company’s manufacturing, said the statement.
FCA has invested $280 million towards localisation of the Jeep Compass and has enhanced the facility to world standard. The Ranjangaon facility has become a significant manufacturing and export hub for FCA joining Brazil, Mexico and China on the global production map.
FIAPL will be FCA’s sole manufacturing facility that will supply Jeep Compass SUVs to all international right-hand drive markets, it said.
