Amazon Will Begin Selling Cars Online

Amazon Will Begin Selling Cars Online in Italy

Nov 18, 2016



Car shoppers in Italy will soon be able to purchase a Fiat online.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has teamed up with online giant Amazon to initially offer three Fiat models for sale online, the 500, the Panda and the 500L. The automaker said the decision to sell those three models was delibarate, since the Panda is Italy’s biggest-selling car, while the 500 and 500L appeal to younger shoppers. According to Gianluca Italia, the man responsible for Fiat Chrysler in Italy, the partnership will appeal to buyers looking for deals without having to leave their home, saying that existing promotions will be improved by up to 33 percent for online customers.

Italia added that research shows half of Italians are willing to purchase a vehicle online, but 97 percent prefer to pick it up from a traditional dealer. As a result, the shopping experience Amazon will provide allows buyers to pick their car, customize it and get a final price before being contacted by Amazon to decide on a dealer where they can finalize their purchase and take delivery. The company says a vehicle should be ready within two weeks of the initial click online.

“The time has arrived to give consumers a new, more efficient and transparent way to choose a new vehicle,” said Gianluca Italia during an online press conference.

Exclamation Fiat to slash prices in U.S.

Fiat to slash prices in U.S.

November 21, 2016

Fiat's new pricing structure in the U.S. will cut the sticker prices of some models next year up to $5,205 and drop the starting price of its cheapest model under $15,000, excluding shipping, according to documents obtained by Automotive News.

The new pricing structure was hinted at but not detailed earlier this year when Tim Kuniskis, head of passenger car brands for Fiat Chrysler, met in March with North American Fiat dealers at a special meeting in Detroit to save the struggling brand.


Quote:
The document sent to Fiat dealers this month shows the price for a base-level Fiat 500 Pop minicar -- in what is described as the "2017MY showroom" -- dropping from $16,995 to $14,995, excluding the current $995 shipping fee.

It also details a Fiat showroom that will have far fewer trim levels across its four-car lineup and fewer places where prices of similar cars overlap each other.

One example is a drop of as much as $5,205 in the price of the convertible 500 minicar, the 500C, as the brand makes the droptop a $1,495 option across all trims next year. That reduces the price of the top-end 500 Abarth Cabrio from $26,695 this year to $21,490 in 2017, before shipping charges.

The sharp price decline of the 500 convertible puts some room between it and the brand's new convertible, the Fiat 124 Spider. The 124 -- built in Japan by Mazda and based on the Mazda MX-5 -- starts at $24,995 and rises to $28,195, excluding shipping.

2017 Fiat 500 Riva

2017 Fiat 500 Riva coming to UAE and GCC

Nov 27, 2016



The reborn Fiat 500, which debuted in 2007 and has been hugely popular in Europe but has remained externally unchanged since then, is getting a new variant called the 500 Riva. And it’s coming to the UAE and other GCC countries.

Quote:
The Riva branding comes from an Italian luxury-watercraft maker of the same name, and as such, the limited edition 500 Riva hatchback and convertible models will have wooden detailing to reflect boat construction, such as the gear knob which is carved from solid mahogany and the mahogany dashboard with maple inlays. These superior woods are used to make Riva yachts and normally only used in top-end premium cars. The floor mats have been specially created with ivory hems and contrasting Sera Blue stitching, and the boot mat also features a wood insert with Riva lettering.

The Sera Blue bodywork, an exclusive colour created especially for this limited special series, is one of the most popular offered for the Aquariva Super, Riva’s emblematic yacht. Other details include chrome-plated mirror caps and handles, among several other minor touches. All-new exclusive 20-spoke light alloy 16-inch rims with a blue finish were specially designed for this series. Riva branding is featured on the wheel arches, the wooden inserts on the side panel and dashboard plus the back of the car.

Fiat’s 1.4-litre “MultiAir” 4-cylinder engine with 6-speed automatic transmission delivers 100 hp at 6500 rpm and 131 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm. MultiAir is an innovative intake valve system replaces a traditional overhead cam with four hydraulic solenoids for instantaneous air-fuel adjustment at any time in the engine cycle for maximum efficiency and power. This world-first fully variable-valve actuation (FVVA) system on a production engine helps the Fiat 500 achieve 10% greater fuel efficiency and power while simultaneously decreasing CO2 emissions by up to 10% compared to engines without the system. Also known as

The new 500 Riva special series features an extensive range of tech and safety equipment. There are seven airbags, ABS complete with EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution), ESC (Electronic Stability Control), ASR (Anti Slip Regulation), Hill Holder (which assists the driver during hill starts) and HBA (Hydraulic Brake Assistance) that helps with emergency braking. Also included as standard are automatic air-conditioning, fog lights, LED day-time lights and a personalised TFT screen with aquamarine background and Riva logo.

The dashboard also incorporates a 7” (177.8 mm) Uconnect HD touchscreen with tablet effect and HD display, as standard equipment. This system implements a wide range of functions, including Bluetooth hands-free system, voice recognition and FM/AM radio. Multimedia devices can be connected via USB, 3.5mm auxiliary jack or Bluetooth.

The Fiat 500 Riva is coming to the Middle East next year, but an exact date has not been specified.

Exclamation Fiat 500e leases for less than a smartphone

Fiat 500e leases for less than a smartphone

March 4, 2017



If the economics of electric vehicles seem less than sound, consider this: In Southern California, it can be cheaper to lease a Fiat 500e for three years than to lease a working smartphone.

The Fiat 500e -- the car Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne once told consumers not to buy because he lost $14,000 on each sale -- was being advertised widely in Southern California last month for as little as $69 per month for a 36-month lease, with no money down.

Seem cheap? That monthly payment was $20 higher than it was around Black Friday in November.


Quote:
The 500e, which was introduced for the 2013 model year, is a "compliance car" -- a vehicle whose sole purpose is to satisfy clean-air regulations in California and other states mandating the sale of zero-emission vehicles. And while Marchionne took heat in 2014 for trying to steer consumers away because of the losses the 500e generates, the automaker needs those sales to be able to keep selling Jeeps, Rams, Dodges and Chryslers in the largest state market.

Here's how the Southern California lease deal worked, according to dealership websites in the region:

The 500e was advertised for $33,295. To make the deal work, the leasing company took ownership of the federal, state and local ZEV tax credits and rebates due to the lessee, along with factory rebates and another $1,000 incentive if the incoming trade-in was a lease conquest. Lessees were limited to putting 10,000 miles a year on the cars. The deals didn't work everywhere or for everybody because some localities have air quality rebates that others don't, and some rebates are limited based on income.

Add it all up, though, and it's still a lot of money. According to J.D. Power PIN data, the average transaction price for the Fiat 500e was $11,129 in February, while the average incentive dollars-per-unit spend was $14,463. That gave the 500e an average incentive spend of 130 percent of its average transaction price last month.

An FCA spokesman declined to comment on the 500e's collective incentives. However, an FCA source said the automaker had no role in the lease deals being offered through the company's preferred lending partner, Chrysler Capital.

The Fiat 500e has changed little since it was introduced in the summer of 2013, even as other automakers have upped the capabilities of their electric offerings. For example, the 500e's 84-mile EPA estimated range on a full charge is now dwarfed by competitors such as the Chevy Bolt, with a 238-mile estimated range.

According to dealer websites advertising the cheap leases, the 500e would have a residual of $19,977 at the end of the lease term. Those estimates might be generous. According to GreenCarReports.com, off-lease 2013 Fiat 500es were being listed on Manheim auction sites in Southern California late last year for as little as $4,100.
