The facility, with an initial 12-month term which can be extended for a further six months, adds to FCA's existing credit facilities worth 7.7 billion euros, including lines for 1.5 billion euros which the automaker has started to draw down.

"The successful syndication confirms the strong support that FCA continues to enjoy from its relationship banks and supports FCA's continued access to international capital markets in the current extraordinary circumstances," FCA said in a statement.
