@Raj_pol Ah, but you bear prejudices against the nano (even the newest avatar?). Not unlike so many/almost everyone. A fine vehicle, for what it is (which is not much), which is precisely like the original 500, mini and citroen cv2, the first 'ordinary humble middle class family cars' in automotive history, and equally innovative/pioneering. But you missed the point, the burden of my point: the Kwid and the Alto 800cc is exactly the same kind of car as the Nano: a cut price dinky car for first time 'aspirational' 'third world' buyers on budgets who must, however, buy a 'car' or rather a mere 4-wheeler, for status reasons, rather than content themselves with cycles, bikes, scooters, autos, cabs, buses, trains, and metros. As if these were plagues, which they often are in India admittedly. However, after spending hundreds if not thousands of crores on the nano project: it has not sold at all, despite having many many virtues and singularities, especially recent avatars. Why the hell, then, would anyone else (like Fiat/FCA) want to take such a wild bet with awful odds on this a1/a2 segment? Carlos Ghosn has tried this in India as in similar 'third world' markets several times over (Logan, Micra, Sunny, Evalia, Stile, Pulse, Scala, Duster, Terrano) succeeding only now with the KWID, after HUGE accumulated losses. In fact, who knows, yet, what profitability, if any, the KWID project is able to deliver him over the next year or three or five (not counting exports of the cars and/or the r&d that went into developing it for other, eg African or LatAm markets). A FIAT-branded Kwid wouldn't have gotten even a thousand bookings, let alone 50000, just as the Nano never took off either. But a Fiat 500X at 14-16 lakhs may sell 500+/- a month, the rest being exported, profitably in both cases? Likewise its platform and powertrain mate, the Aegea sedan? and so on. The odds are heavily stacked against the FIAT brand as it is, it simply cannot afford exorbitant Nano and Kwid (or Micra+Sunny+Evalia-type) punts on huge sales-numbers for the huge economies-of-scale that alone make such products viable Those huge sales numbers are impossible for the FIAT brand, no matter what they offer at no matter what price, after all, you will agree, no?.
