Fiat-Chrysler Cars (FCA) are reportedly planning to open an assembly plant in Detroit.
According to the US media, the facility will start producing Jeep sports cars (SUVs) in 2020 and create jobs for up to 400 people.
The US-Italian automaker has not approved plans.
However, the company said it would like to increase the production of trucks and SUVs, which had previously undergone strong sales in the US.
If true, the plans will be a rare expansion in a sector where competitors are interrupted by a US automobile company.
The report is scheduled to reopen an unsafe engine factory as a vehicle assembly plant since 2012.
Overall, Fiat Chrysler & # 39; s US sales increased by 8% this year, Jeep continues to grow with a range of products.
These gains came in spite of relatively flat sales in the broader sector, where sales peaked in 2016.
General Motors demanded the demand to loosen up when it announced last month that it plans to end production in five US factories in North America, including four in the US.
This movement received harsh criticism from politicians as part of a broader revision of the work that would lead to the loss of more than 14,000 jobs.
It was also a coup for US President Donald Trump, who made revitalization of automobile production a priority for his administration.
Ford has announced plans for restructuring, even if the dismissal is not specified.
