DETROIT – Chrysler Group LLC and Fiat Auto SpA have picked a new name and logo for a combined company: Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV.

FCA will be based in The Netherlands once the merger is complete, have a fiscal office in England for tax purposes, be traded primarily on the New York Stock Exchange with a secondary listing on the stock exchange in Milan, Italy, according to Automotive News, a sister publication of Plastics News.
