Sales as well as marketshare gains continue this month too for FCA in Italy, France and Spain. Italy of course, but even France seem to have a particular liking for the new Fiat 500X, more so it would appear than most other European countries. And considering its higher-pricing, and fewer dealers, as well as being a still-young (and that too American brand, which have tended to do poorly in Europe over the decades) brand: the Jeep renegade is an outright HIT. It does appear that they've exceeded all targets and expectations for the 500X+Renegade twins out of the, from all reports, hugely impressive new Melfi plant? Their availability in many markets, including the big US and even UK rhd, has not yet full-tilt, so sales and demand for them has some considerable more ways to run? There is a HUGE shift towards crossovers, all over the world, but especially in rebounding-from long recession Europe, and especially in France, Italy, Spain and the UK, it seems. Very, impeccable timing from Marchionne et al, then, with the 500X and Renagade twins. By mid-2017 there will also be an attempt to replictae this twinning success one segment up: the (also India-destined Jeep C-suv) AND a Fiat-branded C-Suv too (which may not however be branded and styled a la 500 line-up/sub-brand).
