Though in the long run it will be good for Fiat and Tata to operate separately, at least from the sales point of view, I believe time is not yet ripe for such an arrangement. It will be in the best interests of both to continue to iron out differences, and run the joint venture. Fiat's target of 40,000 cars for this financial year now seems very optimistic. Even 25k would be an optimistic number in my opinion. Best bet at this juncture is to retain the relationship, and concentrate on increasing the sales with what is available, and then think about things when the time is right.
