Poland’s Deputy Prime Minister Jaroslaw Gowin announced on Wednesday morning that Italian-American carmaker Fiat Chrysler will invest $204 million in its plant in Tychy in Poland, where new electric and hybrid Jeep, Alfa Romeo and Fiat models will be built.

“Modern, hybrid and electric cars of the Jeep, Fiat and Alfa Romeo brands will start to leave the factory in Tychy in 2022,” Gowin wrote on Twitter, pointing out there could be further investment in the plant in the near future.

In a statement, Fiat Chrysler said that early preparations for the expansion and modernization of the plant started in late 2020. 

The plant in Poland’s industrial southern region of Silesia is one of Fiat Chrysler’s largest and currently employs around 2,500 people.

The investment comes as a boost to emerging Europe’s largest economy, which is hoping a switch to electric cars can help its auto sector catch up with regional rivals including the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
