Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (FCAU) confirmed Friday that it is in discussions with Hon Hai Precision Ind. Co., Ltd., better known as Foxconn, to create a possible equal joint venture to develop and manufacture electric vehicles in China. The joint venture could engage in the Internet of Vehicles business.

The companies are in the process of signing a preliminary agreement which will govern further discussions aimed at reaching final binding agreements in the next few months, Fiat Chrysler said in a statement. However, there is no assurance that final binding agreements will be reached.
