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...
