Fiat sets a new delivery record in 2012


Time has come for Fiat to show us what it can do. This is the largest carmaker in Italy and managed to set new production and sales records in Brazil last year. Fiat posted its best results in 36 years since it has been operating in the South American parts. Only a day ago, Fiat declared that it sold 838.219 light commercial and passenger vehicles. This actually represents 11.1 % increase over 2011. Back then, Fiat managed to deliver 754.276 units. It also registered a 10.2 % increase over the previous sales record of 760.495 units that was established in 2010. In Brazil, the automaker managed to outperform when sales of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles increased by 6.1 %, from 3.426.290 vehicles in 2011, to 3.634.510 in 2012. These numbers represent a share increase to 23.1 % from 22 %. According to Cledorvino Belini, Chairman of Fiat and Chrysler of Latin America, the company did a very good job this year because the specialists were capable of anticipation the market recovery and so they were ready to ramp up production at the perfect moment; this lead to gaining market position and share. As we said before, the performance of 2012 is their best one in 36 years since Fiat exists in Brazil.



If we go back in time we will find that the bestselling models developed by Fiat are the Uno sub compact and the Strada small pickup truck series. The specialists managed to sell 255.149 units of the first one and 177.464 units of the second one. Yes, it is true, Fiat managed to set sales and delivery records, but this is not all. The Italian also set an all time production high in Brazil with 759.000 units and light commercial vehicles built. This represents a 12.5 % increase over 2011. Well folks, this is very good news for the Italians and why not, for its clients.
