The Chrysler 200's production has ended. FCA did search for a partner to continue building the 200, but could not reach an agreement with any manufacturers. The 200, which shared a platform with the Dodge Dart, was slightly smaller and didn't seem to fit the targeted niche, leading to the rather dreary numbers.Chrysler has since decided to repurpose the plant once used for 200 production to focus on building the next RAM 1500 as well as other models built upon the same architecture.
