Fiat-Chrysler expects to add 1,500 new jobs at its Melfi plant in southern Italy thanks to an "extremely positive" response to its new Jeep Renegade and Fiat 500X SUVs.
Of these jobs, around 1,000 would be new hires, the company said in a statement Monday.
Fiat Chrysler also said a temporary layoff scheme at the plant would end, allowing 5,418 employees to return to work.
The company builds the Renegade and 500X subcompact SUVs in Italy for global markets including the U.S. and Europe.
The Renegade in December was among the top 10 selling vehicles in Italy while the 500X has already received 1,500 orders, the automaker said.

The company said that once global demand for the models is stable, the workers could be offered new contracts featuring increasing job security.
The round of hiring would be a bright spot for Italy, where unemployment last year topped 13 percent.
