The company will phase out oil-burners over the next four years.

FCA intends to phase out diesel-powered cars from the Alfa Romeo, Fiat, Jeep and Maserati brands by 2022. According to a report by the Financial Times FCA will make the announcement in June under a mid-term plan. The company hasn’t said whether this would include diesel-only models like its pick-up truck, or its four vans. Every FCA brand, apart from Abarth, has at least one diesel model in its line-up. The move has seen support from environmental groups such as Greenpeace.

Fiat Chrysler's international diesel passenger car line-up consists of:

Alfa Romeo Giulia

Alfa Romeo Giulietta

Alfa Romeo Mito

Alfa Romeo Stelvio

Fiat 500

Fiat 500L

Fiat 500X

Fiat Doblo

Fiat Fullback

Fiat Panda

Fiat Qubo

Fiat Tipo

Jeep Cherokee

Jeep Compass

Jeep Grand Cherokee

Jeep Renegade

Jeep Wrangler

Maserati Ghibli

Maserati Levante

Maserati Quattroporte

In India, Fiat makes the popular 1.3-litre diesel engine that’s used a lot by Maruti Suzuki and it even makes the 2.0-litre diesel unit that sits in the Compass. The 1.3-litre Multijet will be discontinued come 2020 and Fiat doesn’t intend to upgrade it to meet BS-VI norms.
