Fiat shd realise that the diesel will outsell petrol 4:1. Else, it will be a long waiting period for the diesel.

Fiat probably knows that already. Every second car sold runs with a Fiat derived diesel engine these days (MJD/Quadrajet/DDiS).

They should probably realized that there would be more demand for the Emotion Plus model more if they price is sensibly.

IMO that should not be a problem as they have the capacity to produce 300000 engines annually at Ranjangaon plant.

But again the wait for launch is extended because of Jazz launch. I am eagerly waiting for 17th now. I hope dealerships start displaying Punto as soon as it arrives. Just like Honda is doing.

Actually!
Little OT here but I remember, when Xylo was about to launch, the mahindra website was almost updated every alternate day. I wonder why FIAT is so quite about it.

On the same thread I saw people commenting that fiat website is updated with something like "watch this place in june". But I couldn't any thing like that on Fiat India.

Its a small java banner saying "Watch this space in June" and also "The car you've been waiting for" with Punto logo.

I really started feeling like a dumb now, but still can't find it. This is the page what I see,
Fiat Grande Punto. EDIT : Launch on 17th June!-fiat_snapshot.jpg

Or is the white box under "Model Range" supposed to show that?

OT: Already completed TD for Ritz and i20. OMG comparing with i20 Ritz is no were near in comfort, quality and Look.. No offense though to others.
Wildon, if these are the ex-showroom prices,then Punto is a clear winner.

Good to see FIAT improving their dealer network and A.S.S.
Come on FIAT, WAKE UP. "watch this space in June" still appears on fiat-india site . Put those teasers.
