I am also inclined to think that the Indian team and market was left on its own to barely survive, while they were at the HQs fully focused on the Chrysler offerings and restructuring (and global Jeep re-launch). FCA for the past few years has been mainly about America-Italy joint platform developments and then some China and some about Brazil. Actually pure Fiat products (not Jeep) should now more than ever make more sense in the still unexplored and evolving Indian market and its demands. I am pretty sure the Jeep product line-up is going to be loved and will have its own fan following here in India too. But the pricing and scaling down of materials and models we shall have to wait and see in this very price sensitive Indian environment. The focus looks like getting a footing in the American and also the European market mainly through Jeep products with a common platform, which hopefully will be embraced whole-heartedly by the rest of the world. Sergio Marchionne is like that OP research mathematician depicted in THE IMITATION GAME, who has what it takes to take ruthless decisions after cracking the mysterious code to win the game. For this he too might be willing to kill a few platforms or take bold unpopular decisions which may not be favourable or interesting for the average Indian customer's needs or likings. I am not sure how long they are willing to drag these stalling plans and techniques for their car lineups, before making things really interesting.
