Where are Alfa Romeo Cars Built?

March 18, 2013

Alfa Romeo is a traditional Italian car company with a long history. Founded in 1910 in Milan, Alfa Romeo has exported cars to the United States and other nations, including many sports cars and luxury vehicles that carry the mark of authentic Italian craftmanship. Alfa Romeo is part of the Fiat Group. Fiat stands for Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino or the Italian Automobile Factory of Turin. Throughout the 1990s and into the 21st century, the Alfa Romeo product line has been produced in various Italian cities.

Though Alfa Romeo cars were exported to the U.S. in past decades, in 1995, most U.S. exports of this kind of car stopped. After this point, the American auto consumer has been able to get a very limited selection of Alfa Romeo cars. Sometimes through Maserati dealerships, according to some industry sources.

Due to deals underway in the last several years between Fiat and Chrysler, it has become likely that the Alfa Romeo may be produced in the United States, or at least resume the American exports. The new relationship between Italian and American automakers may yield any number of results for new car lines for a global consumer audience. It's worth keeping an eye on what's going on with Fiat and its subsidiaries as the world car market continues to change to meet new demand. Many of them based on a new understanding of auto emissions and their role in future production. Automotive publications and news outlets will be watching what the Italian automaker does in future years, including its interactions with American companies like Chrysler.
