    A little boy with all his innocence tells his father : Dad, if God made everything, he must be living in China:)

    Fiat India to help parent company develop smallest Jeep

    Fiat India’s research and development (R&D) team would contribute significantly in the Italian car maker’s programme to design and develop its alliance partner Chrysler’s smallest Jeep, to be launched globally in mid-2014. The company has finalised a plan to roll out nine new models by 2016, some of which would be shipped from India to right-hand-drive markets abroad.

    Fiat in talks with Tata Capital for financing of cars

    CHENNAI: Fiat Group Automobiles India is in talks with Tata Capital for financing its range of cars in the country from April, a top official said today.

    "In terms of financial services, there is an agreement we have with Tata in Europe. Actually, we are providing financial services for Jaguar Landrover in Europe. There is a kind of reciprocal agreement for India (market), and we are going to use one of their companies, Tata (Motor) Finance or Tata Capital," Fiat Group Automobiles India Managing Director Enrico Atanasio told reporters here.

    Fiat Group Automobiles India is the Indian arm of Italian automobile major Fiat.

    Asked when the financial services division is likely to be rolled out, he said, "We are planning to do that as part of our announcement in April. We are working on that (Tata Capital to handle financial services for Fiat Group India)".

    Earlier, after inaugurating the company's exclusive outlet in city, Atanasio said currently the company has 16 exclusive outlets in the country which would be ramped up to 65 by end of March, 2013.

    On some of Tata Motors' outlets retailing Fiat cars, he said still 160 retail outlets were under the Tata-Fiat tie-up. "We expect it (tie-up) to be terminated by March 2013", Atanasio said.

    Fiat and Tata last year agreed that in order to further develop the Fiat brand in India, management control of Fiat's commercial and distribution activities will be handled by the Indian arm of Fiat Group.

    On their plans for this year, he said the company has set a target of reaching one per cent market share (from the present 0.5 per cent) with new product launches. <META name=cmsei content=cms.next>

    Not supporting him or any thing, but being responsible in terms of making FIAT standing bright depends on lots of factors. If you stand in his shoes for a minute, its very difficult to make a date commitment as per you. For him, the high priority is to make/change peoples mindset and that is via ASS and Showrooms. Then he has to bring in the sales (Revenue), then management (share holders, board members, etc.) gives go ahead to increse the models which involves more investments and all. Just increasing the models to me looks like a good bet but huge huge risk which can uproot FIAT from the market itself.
