    Note:
    Opening with new subject as this is confirmed news.

    Fiat India announced its intent to increase its focus on exports under which they have exported the Fiat Linea to Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka the inauguration is set for on 29th September, 2011. As far as the dealership is concerned, Speed Italia is rightly going to be taking charge.


    Fiat India expects to receive a good response to the Linea 1.4 Emotion Pack in this market. The first batch of cars which is set for the export comprises of 72 cars of which 50 cars have been allotted to the Sri Lankan Air Force officials on delivery at the time of the inauguration.

    As part of this strategy, Fiat has also begun testing new growth opportunities overseas with sharp focus on countries such as Bhutan and Australia as well which are both right hand drive countries. The car market size in Sri Lanka is around 20,000 units per annum. We have targeted to achieve 5 percent in the first year itself. The company commenced its exports to South Africa and early this year commenced exports to Nepal. The exported batch of Linea is similar to the one driven on Indian roads. Fiat’s products – The Fiat Linea and The Fiat Punto have been well received in South Africa and Nepal.

    When I have visited Bhutan, I have seen 01 Linea but that was KA (Karnataka) passing.
    Good decision. More and more FIATs in our neighboring countries !!!
    India will also have good population of FIATs after FIAT specific dealer network comes up!!!!

    This is a good decision - if India becomes an export hub, FIAT will get the much needed push in sales number through exports.

    Good move.

    At least the stockpiles of Linea that are being generated in Ranjangaon plant would be reduced...

    FIAT also needs to concentrate on India market though...
