Such hostility will of course not be tolerated without blessings of bigwigs within political circles within the US. Already the takeover of Chrysler is still not assimilated a news for some patriotic people there and is also therefore under very minute scrutiny of industry observers over there. Mitsubishi and Mazda are also two prospective alliance partners considered as marriage proposals for FCA. Mitsubishi could apparently as per one article offer a 'priviledged' position to FCA esp. in ASEAN regions should the latter think of such a move as per this report. Although to gain a dominant position in India it needs Suzuki, and Suzuki needs FCA access for US where its non-existent. Although Mazda could probably be an easier option for a take-over, it does not offer much for Marchionne's target sales figures under FCA, and also does not complement the portfolio of vehicles already under the group.
