China: 6,000 Fiat Viaggio sold since mid-September

Fiat Viaggio

I know a lot of you have been asking for Chinese sales figures for the Fiat Viaggo, given local production started in June and sales in mid-September. Until today no data was available as it seems GAC-Fiat would not communicate anything to Chooseauto which is my source for monthly sales in China. Yesterday however, Italian website Quattroruote.it published a very positive article about the Viaggio's Chinese sales, quoting Jack Chang - Managing Director of the GAC-Fiat joint venture.

And for the first time Viaggio sales in China are revealed to be 6,000 so far since launch, with the production level currently at 200 per day. Chang says Fiat is now aiming at selling 15,000 units by the end of the year in the 110 Fiat dealerships across the country. Now are these figures strong? The article raves about them but let's have a closer look and put them into perspective...

    That seems like a pretty impressive debut especially with a car like this. We personally know it’s been hard to introduce some vehicles like this to the public even with the push of the major marketing behind it. This is a good sign though, hopefully they keep moving forward with the success of this Fiat line!

    The monthly trend is actually pretty good: 900 (Sept) – 2000 (Oct) – 4000 (Nov) – 8000 (Dec).

    Of course the last two months are just sales forecast but the production ramp up for a reason I guess.

    You can find the data at the GAC website, I don’t have the link though, try to goggle it ;).

    Hey everybody. Come and check my latest post of how should be Fiat-Chrysler strategy for Chinese market. By the way ‘Speedal’, what do you think of these results? on November 15th you said that due to lack of official data “MAybe no sales yet for Fiat Viaggio… something in common with many new products from Lingotto worldwide…” Now you don’t comment on that but you bet they won’t publish any data. You should learn not to speculate that much. My post:

    Even though the production has started earlier, the car was available for sales only from mid september, so the numbers don’t look that bad.

    “Hopefully Fiat will start communicating monthly figures so I can incorporate the Viaggio in my monthly rankings.”
    I don’t know for sure, but I bet they won’t…
