Since a lot of people go by the crap they read in the media,,rumours get aggravated,,Fiat most definitely will not pull out of India,,It is going to become the small car manufacturing hub of the world and all manufacturers look upon their domestic sales as a bonus,,since their products have global appeal,,obviously this does not and cannot apply to Maruti 9since everyone knows Suzuki make brilliant bikes and ****ty cars),,Tata (since they do their R&D on their customers cars and feedback and Hyundai ( about whom one issue of CAR UK made the following comment,,an amazing product as they have managed to Bugger up both the ride and handling ) and recommended a 20 year old VW golf as a better alternative to the ATOZ-our santro

Thumbs up Fiat's CEO sees extension of partnersip with Tata

More news on allaince

MILAN (AFX) - Fiat SpA's chief executive Sergio Marchionne said that in the medium-long term India's Tata Motors will be one of the company's most important partners, also for commercial, industrial and agricultural vehicles.

'Together we could have global ambitions, (build) wider alliances: I would like, for example, to make a common engine for the Asian market in India,' he said in a interview with the daily Corriere della Sera.

Marchionne also said an extended partnership with Tata will give access not only to India but also to other markets.

Last month, Fiat announced it signed a memorandum of understanding with Tata to study possible cooperation in the car sector.

Asked about possible joint ventures at Iveco, Marchionne said the unit will will expand in China, without adding details.

Hello everybody,

I happened to have a chat with Hormudz of AutoCar last Sunday. I had posted a query regarding Fiat India's fate on their website and they decided to call me up. They are planning to air my question in their Autoshow (probably tonight at 10:30 pm). I am not too sure whether it will be in this show or the next one.

It was during those first few days when these rumours of Fiat India getting out of India were published that I got upset and had plans to sell my car ASAP. I had written to them instinctively asking for their suggestion. The query is regarding that.

It is a kind of mixed feeling for me because there are chances that my voice will be heard on TV, the first for me and I am happy and eager to see how it sounds . The sad part is that AutoCar also looks very certain that Fiat India is planning its exit.

Anyway, I now have no plans of selling my car.

Cheers,

I guess during those first few days even Autocar knew as much about Fiat India's plans as we team-bhpians knew so and thats probably the reason Hormazd said what he did. Come to think about it, Fiat India has still not said what it's plans are. I mean we know from "sources" that they plan to move to Ranjangaon but Fiat India has not commented anything as yet.

I agree with you on this. Everything is still a speculation and my primary aim was to check with ACI whether they know anything better from their sources. But from the look of things, it does not seem so. Speculation continues :( ....

@DeepakHon, I'll not really be surprised if the "sources" of CNBC, which claimed Fiat India is closing down, are actually AutoCar folks. So you should feel equally sad as earlier, no more no less

Agreed. The only positive thing to emerge out of this exercise is that I can get to hear my voice on a TV channel if they decide to air this question
