    Kevin Flynn did say months ago that theyd be working with dealers on better management of inventories so that, extrapolating now, they don't have a repeat of 2014's utter fiasco of a december fire-sale (2 lakhs off etc.) That seems to've been achieved mostly, BUT only through much-reduced manufacturing and wholesale shipments for the previous 5-6 months. Hope this december figure has a goodly number of Abarth-s, say 50/60?

    NET-NET: no improvement, indeed on average: further big %-terms decline, nevermind the 'Crafted for Car lovers' campaign, or the Abarth launch and ads. But hopefully some dealerships have been well-bouyed up for a while?

    Like chevy, nissan, vw and skoda, also possibly tata: the market's given a knockout punch in 2015. IMO we may be seeing a change in market basic-STRUCTURE, i.e., a near-permanent-shift in favour of 2-3 maybe some small room for say 2 of the foll. marques: Toyota, Tata, Ford and Mahindra into the mix, for many foreseeable years. With little-to-no-meaningful financial-viability-room left for anyone else?

    "Down for the count! The clock is ticking! etc" It is no wonder, then, that the firms most-big on exports, now and planned, are: vw, chevy, nissan, ford...and FIAT/fca/Jeep??

    It is quite likely that you will see a break up like 650 Puntos and 142 Lineas. The break up of Punto's will remain a mystery.

    So finally we have complete numbers for 2015.
    See the data, bad numbers, but consistent :).

    Total of 8621 cars with an average of 718 cars a month with 100 dealerships is a horrible nightmare for the sales team. But the ship is still sailing.

    Krishna,
    Its nightmare for customers, not for the company. Had the sales team been effective, we could have easily seen some good numbers for the last year. I would say the ship is floating directionless and not sailing. Had it been sailing it would reach somewhere, isnt it?

    @nkrishnap,

    does fiat really has 100 dealerships?

    in Kerala we have around 12 dealerships as per their website but among them only around 8 have (sales point +service center) and 4 is only sales point of the existing dealerships to service other smaller cities.

    so out of 100, i believe around 60 to 70 will be the actual dealerships and remaining will be only sales point only.

    The figures indicate that FIAT sales haven't dropped, indicating it is chosen by those who understand driving and are brave enough. This number can never rise fast, unless FIAT does something to convert lure-in others. Only worrisome issue is the apparently dwindling FASS support, where all understanding and bravery of buyers like us will fail. I wish luck to all FIAT lovers in this new year!
