Chrysler putting brakes on Dodge Grand Caravan production at WAP

Chrysler will stop producing the Dodge Grand Caravan at the Windsor Assembly Plant, ending the decades-long history of producing the model at the facility.

The automaker made the announcement yesterday at Investor Day at its Auburn Hills, Michigan headquarters, where the company's business plan for the next five years was revealed.

The Grand Caravan will be discontinued once the 2016 model of the Chrysler Town and Country is launched, which could be as soon as late next year or early 2016.

In March, Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne withdrew the company's pitch for government aid as a condition for further investment in both the Windsor and Brampton facilities. Regarding the company's decision, Marchionne told reporters at the Geneva International Motor Show, "I don't want politicians to screw around with the capital expenditure program."

Since withdrawing its request for government subsidies, Chrysler has released few details on future long-term investments in its Canadian facilities, only to say that further investment would depend on the plants' competitiveness.
