Earlier reports of Lancia getting axed have been debunked by Chrysler spokesman Scott Brown, stating that those rumors are indeed false and that Lancia will continue on in Europe.

According to Brown, the Epsilon model will be made in Italy while the rest of the brand’s lineup will be built in North America by Chrysler.

“What was said by Marchionne is that Lancia Epsilon will continue to be made in Italy and the rest of Lancia portfolio will be developed together with the Chrysler Brand and those vehicles will be made in North America,” said Brown, “A development has been announced, NOT the end of Lancia.”
