Message from President & CEO Pontus Häggstrӧm
With the integration of our headquarters and our operations in Japan, we became one of the largest Importers of foreign cars in Japan on January 1, 2015.
Each of our five brands, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Fiat, Jeep® and Abarth and unique characteristics, and above all, each is a strong representation of the passion and enthusiasm for driving that are found in Italy and the United States. The employees of FCA Japan, our dealerships, and our customers, we believe, all share this same passion for our brands and driving.
The year 2016 should be commemorated as the year that we started the authorized dealership network enhancement project, and I am thrilled that as a result of steady advancements with this project, we were able increase Italian brand dealerships by 65, and American brand dealerships by 5 and were able to achieve an annual sales volume of over 20,000 vehicles. This year will be an exciting year as we continue our efforts to further expand our sales network and deliver new models including the Alfa Romeo Giulia to customers in Japan.
