CHRYSLER SETS MINIVAN VENTURE

Chrysler Corp. said Monday it would form a joint venture with an Austrian company to make a European version of the automakers' popular minivans beginning next year.

The deal announced Monday between the No. 3 automaker and Steyr-Daimler-Puch Fahrzeugtechnik is the second joint manufacturing venture between a European vehicle maker and the U.S. automaker, which has no manufacturing plants of its own in Europe.

Chrysler and Renault are involved in a joint program to make a sport-utility vehicle, code-named the "JJ," to be built beginning in 1992 at yet-to-be-announced plants in North American and either Spain or Portugal.
