Abarth and Jeep brand isn’t all that Fiat India plans to bring to us! It has recently emerged that Fiat SpA is contemplating entering the Light Commercial Vehicle (LCV) segment of Indian CV market.
“We are studying opportunities in the LCV segment. A final decision has not been made yet, but we are looking at how to bring products from Fiat Professional at competitive price points to the Indian market,” said Enrico Atanasio, Managing Director, Fiat Group Automobiles India Pvt Ltd.
It may be noted that sales of LCVs grew by 15.61 percent to 378,509 units in April-December period last year. Fiat might come up with a smaller version of the Strada CV for battling it out against the Tata ACE in Indian market.
Also on the cards might be the Fiat Doblo, which can stand up against Nissan Evalia and the Ashok Leyland Stile. The Fiat Ducato can be a worthy rival to the Force Traveller.
It will really be quite a task for Fiat to price its CVs well in our country.
