The architecture is being designed by a team of engineers led by Philippe Krief, at the headquarters of Maserati, another trademark of Chrysler Fiat Automobiles. The platform should raise vehicles with rear-wheel drive and all wheel drive, not just the Alpha, but possibly also of Chrysler and Dodge.
