Indian Firm Confirms Talks with Chrysler for Outsourcing SUV Production - Carscoop
Also, I think the Mahindra is also in talks with Chrysler for its Jeep brand sale. Never heard about Argentun Motors before.

I haven't heard of them before either. But from the article it seems like a start up company.

Contract manufacturing is very common in the West. BMW and Mercedes contract many of their models to Magna Steyr;
Products and Technology - Product Expertise - Complete Vehicle Engineering & Assembly - Magna International Inc.
Magna International - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And, in the U.S. Chrysler and G.M. are talking "Merger" with each other. Things are getting complex. A Wrangler with a om611 coming???

Argentum Motors is owned by former Hyundai man BVR Subbu and some other investors. I think they own the erstwhile Daewoo Motors factory in India.
