    Does the “Chrysler” name have a better reputation there? I think, both are ghosts which had seen much better times – Lancia with the Delta HF Integrale, Chrysler with the New Yorker.

    Marc, In the UK, if they used the Lancia name, they would sell even fewer than they are under the Chrysler name, as the UK associates Lancia with rust and unreliability. The Ypsilon and Delta are very overpriced and well below class standards.

    You are right Dario: 500 sales are less dependant on Italian market than Panda’s. By far the small 500 is the most international Fiat in Europe, allong with the Giulietta. In the other hand there is the Lancia Ypsilon which more than 85% is sold in Italy. If you want to see more news about Fiat-Chrysler group come to my blog: http://carindustryanalysis.wordpress.com/

    It would be interesting, in my opinion, to see the export ratio. I mean the percentage of car sold abroad.
    For example (I’m quite interested in Fiat Group sales) Panda sold 17.000 units but 10.000 in Italy (more than 50 percent), while the 500 sold 16.000 units but only 4000 in Italy.

    Why for the Ypsilon model they used Lancia/Chrylser and for all Opel models they don’t use bi-name Opel/Vauxall but only Opel?
    Or one or the other way for all… ;)
