From the info I gathered from a reliable source, the Linea T-Jet will be in Active, Dynamic and Emotion with Active priced at 9L ex-showroom. This seems to be a welcome move compared to previous role of TJet being offered only in Emotion. Lets wait and see for the official announcement.

Active at 9 lakhs means the emotion will probably touch 11 or more on road. This will be yet another disaster similar to the cars first innings. I know it's a lovely car and worth the money but no one is going to put that kind of money in a FIAT in this day and age. Sad but true.

They really should concentrate on the sub 10 lakhs or maybe sub 5 lakhs end of the market.

On second thoughts, maybe this is what FIAT wants. Launch the t jet as technology showcase and make other manufacturers interested in their turbo charges petrol motor, hoping to sell those like the multijet engines.

Awesome pricing, now only thing they need to focus now, is marketing of the same

OMG! 7.6 lakh ? That is some insane pricing from fiat. So they have decided to take the battle head on it seems. Now the only thing needed is good marketing and the T jet will do the rest for fiat.

EDIT : Couldn't find it in fb now. Could this be a slip up from fiat marketing exposing the price before T jet launch?

Indeed, that's a pleasant surprise from fiat. I just hope, now they spend some bucks in marketing, to get going.

With this awesome pricing, T-jet now makes a fantastic value for money proposition. Cheapest, turbo petrol in country, probably?

EDIT- @drpudhi I got this from my friends fb wall, not from fiat's official fb page.

Wait a minute! The 1.4 fire petrol dynamic is 8.2 lakh ex showroom right now. How come the T jet be cheaper than that. Something is just not right. Can you put up the source from where you got that. Is it Fiat India FB page? If so, its not present there right now.

EDIT : Can this be just an over enthusiastic fiat fan? Only two days. Will wait and watch!

I am pretty much sure about this info and pictures as they were clicked at fiat caffe in CP, Delhi. See this, if you want to be sure.

Will need to wait for the launch to get a confirmation on the Active variant , ever since they have had the T-Jet on their website (since April) they have only had 2 models listed - prices ofcourse are not present there - but only 2 models which is the Dynamic and the Emotion

Holy Cow You guys have got me all excited. This price can't be entirely impossible as well.
What if FIAT is planning to launch an Active variant of T-Jet as well and 7.6L can very well be its price

Just confirmed the pricing through a call as well. Starts at 7.6. The person was not sure if it was the Active or the dynamic variant , he is going to get back to me with all the details.

7.6 lakh is absolutely awesome pricing for such an awesome car!
All Fiat needs to do is market it well and improve their service centers and this will sell like hot cakes in my opinion!

The Normal active is 7.12 and the Fire dynamic is 8.12. Starting at 7.60 means in all possibility that it is an Active level trim of the T-Jet. and all variants would be about 40-60,000 more expensive than the fire.

So that would logically out the ex-showroom of the tjet Dynamic at 8.60-8.60 and the Emotion possibly/hopefully at 9-9.20 Lacs. Since there is no Emotion variant for the 1.4 fire its a bit difficult to predict.

However if one goes historically which is that the Tjet Emotion was more expensive than the Diesel emotion , then the Tjet Emotion could carry an ex showroom price tag upwards of 9.60 Lacs.

Ofcourse , conjecture still at the end of the day.
