The website is still not updated!
The Jazz website was fully functional on the day of its launch.
c'mon Fiat.
Its been a great journey (more than 3 years) of follow up on your GRANDE PUNTO release. Please atleast now care for your ardent fans and put up a good show.
All the best to you FIAT.

If I am not mistaken, Jazz website was fully functional only after the launch and just had 1 page before that (till 11-12 noon on launch day). Let's wait.. let the car be officially launched

Ticker on CNBC Awaz at 8 am showed "Fiat aaj nai car punto launch karegi." So the launch is surely on for today.

That's great. The Linea was launched at night and information was avaliable from next day. I am sure members here would riot if they have to wait another day for full specs and pricing info.

Today is the 17th day of the month. Hence, 1500 looks a little difficult considering the fact that there's no ad in the paper today. 800-1000 looks more like it.

Infact while riding to work today morning, I was thinking about how Fiat, with dismal sales of about 300-400 cars a year has suddenly woken up and doing a decent 1000 cars a month (as of now). It would be good to see its share rising. Irony that TATA sales are falling and Fiat's on the rise!

Not possible. Haven't seen a single post from GTO since morning.

So much excitement. Hope Fiat lives up to the expectations... Further they wuld really need to tighten their A.S.S to handle the non-taxi segment owners...

Sorry going a bit off topic, GTO don't drive a Fiat and
"you don't love a fiat unless you drive one".

Eagerly waiting for the launch. I am more interested to see the pricing of diesel models. Hope FIAT will hit a bang one more time!
