    Dadasaheb, rest assured that the JV is not going to be called off.

    I've read the article and Mr. Tata is talking of reinvigorating the stagnant sales and that is a good thing. When a business strategy does not work out as planned, there is always a rethink.

    Gurjinder.

    theres a seperate thread for this http://www.teamfiat.co.in/forum/sho...t-Tata-venture-need-to-be-critically-examined

    and i think Mr Tata is speaking about making relationship more stronger

    It shouldn't. For 2 reasons:

    - Mr.Ratan Tata has clearly said that he doesn't find anything wrong with the concept. They are just going to critically evaluate it so it deliver's what it's capable of.

    - Indica Vista & Indigo Manza are powered by Fiat engines - both petrol & diesel & Fiat gearboxes. If the JV is called off, what will power these volume sellers of Tata?

    That is for those who read the news in full. But lot of people will be just carried away by headline and will think that there is some critical issue with the JV and they are reviewing it. Though Tata confirms that the JV will go on, this news can send negative signals to potential buyers. And these days we see lots of new FIAT owners joining our forum, especially this month.
    I even suspect whether the intention is to tell FIAT that TATA has un upper hand in the JV. I could be wrong.

    Even I was saying that FIAT should add some more cars in its INDIAN Portfolio, & that will only help FIAT to increase sales of FIAT.

    The best example is of FORD. Before launching FIGO they had Fiesta & Endevour in their portfolio. After that they launched FIGO in Petrol & Diesel. Now they are adding one more car which is FORD FIESTA. So total 4 cars in their portfolio. If you compare last years sale & current year sales record of FORD India then you will get clear picture

    FIAT should launch one car below the PUNTO & they should price it very competativly.
