The Indian automaker Fiat India Automobiles has announced its plans to export about 7,000 units of its various models currently produced in India within this fiscal year. The company is mainly concentrating on the SAARC nation, which includes countries like Bhutan, Nepal, and Sri Lanka.
It seems that the company is basically concentrating on countries with right-hand-drive rules and regulations. The company has already exported 700 units of Fiat Palio this year. The recently launched Fiat Linea also comprises a decent number of cars being exported currently. The Fiat Linea was exported to South Africa.
"The Linea has been extremely well received by customers and auto enthusiasts in India. The export of the Linea to South Africa is an integral part of our endeavour to reach out to international markets and establish our presence beyond India. We are confident that we will be able to replicate the success of this car overseas as well and thereby expand our footprint and brand identity across markets. This is a step in the direction of reaffirming our position as an international auto giant," said Rajeev Kapoor, Chief Executive Officer, FIAL.
Fiat is expecting a warm welcome in these countries as it received in the India car market.
