Fiat Panda will replace, this is the official decision despite being one of the most-bought and reputed cars. It will definitely be an ad hoc model, while others will be more or less replaced in the same segment.
Fiat Panda is an unusual destination, as updated sales figures are placed at the top of the top selling in Italy, but the stoppage of production is almost over. On the one hand, Italian drivers are genuinely grateful to a city car that eventually took on different configurations, but if the FCA's strategies contradict the development of a new generation. And it's no secret that the Turin brand reduces the size of models on the market or concentration on some very specific cars, such as 500. And it may not be a coincidence that during a period of general decline in sales, it is just a crossroads to resist and counter the trend . However, the most sales in Italy based on the latest research relating to the first 10 months of the year, Fiat Panda.
Fiat Panda, appreciated, but out of production
His fate is therefore inevitably marked as the ultimate FCA industrial plan, a document that sets out the strategies to be followed and the objectives to be achieved in the coming years. But Fiat Panda boasts some pride and is still among the best-selling and prized cars, perhaps due to the low selling price. The numbers are not: the city car is again the most-purchased car in Italy, with 12,516 units registered in the tenth month of the year, which enabled it to be the most picked by the Italians. Among other things, Fiat Panda is ahead of all in the ranking of the best sellers of the year: in the first ten months of 2018, a small group of the FCA group purchased more than 101,000 and the second was in the class of 44,546 units. All this continued, while a further decline was registered in the automotive market, which lost 7.4% in comparison with the same period of the previous year.
However, FCA's strategies for Fiat are being revised. As we learned from the business plan, in which the group's strategies are contained until 2022, the fleet has begun the path of electrification. The result is 500, 500X and 500L to become mild hybrids with a 12-volt version. On the horizon you can see the Fiat 500 X and 500 L, as well as many other Fiat models, such as the Tipo and Qubo. With a strategic difference at the highest level, because the gasoline engine will surround the electric unit, which is powered by rechargeable batteries also on the domestic electrical outlet or at public stations.
Sales of Fiat have decreased compared to 12 months
In fact, in the first 10 months of 2018 Fiat Panda, sold in Italy, was 101,352. However, in addition to caring for production, Fiat Chrysler has been dealing with a fall of more than 20% of registrations compared to the same period of last year. After a closer inspection, almost all of Fiat's main car cars recorded a decline in sales compared to 12 months ago. Fiat Tipo with 37,000 units fell by 27%.
