    Another hope is, changing their product line-up plan. When they dropped the plan of launching Jeep, the plan can always be revised to include new products.

    Am I too optimistic? :roll:

    Suppose we consider the mass products of Datsun (Go and Go plus) counted along with NISSAN , Fiat cant overcome it unless they introduce mass products within 5L bracket.Also, I have read Nissan having some aggressive plans to expand their dealerships to 300+ to tier 2, tier 3 cities further in the future.As far I see, Japanese and Koreans have never been sleeping fellows unlike Germans or Czech (Italians not considered :D at all) who pull their sleeves and put a fight back.
    Lets see how the game goes once New Punto & Avventura are launched.I don't consider 500 Abarth as this is not a product for our country :chair:! How many TFIans would buy this first (leave about all the capacity of this machine) ?

    Me too really don't understand what Fiat has in mind with 500. Im sure it wont sell in India. Indian's have the psychology of big car for big money. Even a great car like Honda Jazz didn't sell because people think, when we spend this much, why shouldn't we buy a bigger car. We hardly see Mini Cooper & Beetle on road.

    Ya that was my point.I have never seen a Cooper in person till now :evilsmile .I am not sure about Fiat products but believe that Honda Jazz,Mobilio,Datsun products,Hyundai Xcent,Ford Figo Sedan would sell hot,hotter,hottest kind of !

    and Ramjn seems to be dangerously optimistic :D.

    Happy to see Fiat crossing 1500 nos & beating Skoda.

    Punto nos coming down from Jan levels can be understood because of to be launched facelift version, but I had expected better nos for Linea.
    I guess currently there are no discounts on new Linea.

    Fiat wouldn't be depending on the Abarth 500 to bring in numbers. If it sells, good; if it doesn't sell, no problem. Punto and Linea are, and will be, their bread n butter models. The 500 is Fiat's way of adding glitter and glamour to their brand lineup. People will be a tad bit more ready to decide on a purchase if they know that the company they have chosen makes famous and expensive cars too.
    * suppose, just suppose, a Ferrari in a Fiat showroom.. Droooool!! *
