    Actually Ravi, the author also states that there will be actually facelifted Linea at the year end. Whereas, this march end linea will just have features upgrade rather than any face lifts.

    In one of the slides, it clearly mentioned that the new Linea will come with the Tjet and 1.6 MJD engine. Whatever refresh that is coming to the Classic Linea will not be getting the Tjet and 1.6 MJD. However, they might throw in the MJD 2 engine in the Linea. But what about the Petrol? They will need a hefty price cut to get the numbers for classic and make space for the new linea.

    The new Linea should compete with Fludic Verna pricing and not with the Altis, Civic, segment.
  4. MJD-II with quality of Diesel available in our country , I doubt.FIAT has a 1.6 MJD-I engine also.
  5. IAB have reported the relaunch of TJet from 1/April.

    Mr. Atanasio talks again on the plans

    Highlights

    - 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 Fiat Group is investing Euro 1 billion in developing two new products at it facility in Melfi, Italy. Apart from the small Jeep (likely to be named ‘Jeepster’ or ‘Scamp’), the company is working on another crossover vehicle, based on the 500X platform.

    - Enrico Atanasio, managing director, Fiat Group Automobiles India Private Limited, said, “Massive market research would be done from the next quarter for the product (Jeepster) in India.

    - Mr. Atanasio adds, "We are looking at leveraging India as an export hub for right-hand drive models. We have excess capacity in India and are looking at exporting vehicles from here to markets in the UK, Japan, Australia, South Africa."

    - The Italian company has also commissioned an R&D set-up, Chrysler India Automotive Private Limited, in Chennai. Engineers at this facility would work towards launching a B-segment sports utility vehicle (SUV) in India in 2015. It would be manufactured in Ranjangaon.

    - Apart from the Jeepster, Fiat would also introduce a C-segment SUV from the Chrysler portfolio in 2016. Fiat would also launch a compact SUV in the second half of 2014.

    - It would also establish 20 exclusive showrooms for Jeep-branded products by the year-end.

    - Fiat plans to sell 11,000-12,000 units in India this year and double the sales in 2014.

    Can someone point out FIAT INDIA to correct a very basic mistake & immediately help their causes? It's hardly any investment to launch CNG versions asap. Petrol vehicles are selling only because they are offered in factory fitted CNG kits by other Manufacturers. It's not even a mistake, it's plain dumb of FIAT India:mad:.
