    It's good to read some positive sales news... despite the 500L and 500X still performing under last year. It's even better to read the 500 sales number. The 124 number, likewise, is good to see. Now, we may get some cooperation out of the Dodge Boys hold-outs if these numbers are sustainable and/or grow.

    Great! Maybe price reductions have increased sales?

    I read a book a few years ago about the story of the Yugo in the US, and it was a fun and short read. The first year or two, I think their sales were great and increased, as folks loved having a cheap car. But, as each year passed after that, the sales declined until they just stopped importing to the US. I'd hate to have that happen to all the FIATs this time around, so seeing an upturn in total sales is really great!

    Another factor in increased FIAT sales, and there are lots of factors, just might be that FCA is stopping production of the Dart and the Chrysler 200, so maybe the long term goal is that FIAT is the only inexpensive/small car option across FIAT, Dodge, Chrysler, Jeep, Ram, Alfa Romeo, Maserati, etc. At least when I try to look at things how a company CEO does, that's the kind of thing I come up with so far.
