    In Q1 2013, Fiat India sold approximately 1000 cars here accounting for a decimal point market share.

    n increasing it’s footprint, Fiat Group will introduce the Jeep brand in India this year. Fiat India will be introducing Jeep and Abarth cars to make an entry in the luxury market here. Punto and Linea facelift launches are scheduled for later this year. A Punto based crossover would be introduced in 2014. 2013 Grand Cherokee, and Jeep Wranger launches are scheduled for thsi year.

    Don't know about the Q1, but seeing a lot of FIAT's on road in Delhi. Maybe all of the decimal point share went to NCR ?

    I am sure things have already started turning around in Karnataka and Kerala for Fiat. So many of them.

    Though in Bangalore you could see Fiats in regular intervals, the frequency of spotting a fiat has increased manifold. May be within a min or so u can spot 1.

    Even in Kochi, Kerala no of Fiats have gone up. Interestingly i saw 3 fiats ( 1 Linea, 2 puntos) at a house in N. Parur. Wonder if he is TFI'an :)

    We should hope & pray that the current management is not only running after the sales part. Service part is also important for any meaningful recovery in sales figure.
  7. Do we know the sales numbers for April 2013?

    Can our mods start a thread which tracks the number of Fiat cars sold on a monthly basis. Something similar to monthly sales figs thread on TBHP.

    True, here in Bangalore i have started seeing a lot of Fiat vehicles off-late.

    But isnt this expected? At least in India? Supposedly the automobile sector in India is faring very badly now.
