Reuters added that Fiat Chrysler's decision to slash jobs is consistent with the company's CEO Sergio Marchionne prior commentary to cease making the slow selling sedan in addition to the Dodge Dart, unless a partner would be committed to keep the production going.

Shares of Fiat Chrysler were trading lower by 1.50 percent early Wednesday afternoon.
