It would be poetic if FIAT launch their site on fiatlinea.in

Let that guy hold on to his treasured .co.in and quashed dreams of making quick bucks.

I did see Linea & 500 at FIAT Ranjangaon factory being tested. Both of these Vcars are expected to be launched by 01.01.2009

Yes, I fully agree with you on this!

He should not have created a website using the name of a company and its product!
Instead, he could have hosted the specs & other info in his own site or blog!

If you notice, the language on the site is amateur-ish. (eg: "in case of need").

The 500 have been launced around one month back in almost all the larger citys. with a price tag near 15 Lakhs. They have good bookings too from what I heard.But we are yet to see any report on the car in cochin.Not expecting the car to smaller citys like cochin also. But have anyone seen this thin in Banglore , Mumbai,Pune ,Gurgaon etc? at least in some Tata/Fiat Showroom ?

I have a request to every body on the forum to Stop Asking about the launch date. It is starting to sound so lame. And this has been going on for 2 years now. Have Patience everyone will get their share of the Linea in January. Trust Me.

Hi Omargra, where on the fiat-india site did you see this info? I could not see it despite all my efforts.

Just tired of Linea Launch. This news has been there for more than 1.5 years now and still no definite date. What on earth is Fiat waiting for?

I think I will end up buying NHC-2008.
