Fiat may have its days numbered in Russia. The low sales and high import tariffs do not conform to Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and Fiat could retire in a definitive way.
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is revising your strategy for the Russian market, just as the country goes through a political and economic crisis. While the figures of sales in Russia begin to show signs of growth, things are not as expected for the products of the brand Fiat.
today, beyond the commercial vehicles, the only model that Fiat sells in Russia is the 500, but their sales are low and tariffs for import are high, so that the accounts don’t add up for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. It is for this reason that the Italian firm is reworking its strategy its definitive withdrawal from that market could be very close to.
Until last year, Fiat sold to the Point, Freemont and Doblò, but currently only remain in the catalog 500, Fullback and Ducato. By the time the Italian firm has not made public this decision, but the combination of low sales and high import tariffs is not a formula that can sustain itself for much longer.
The Group Fiat Chrysler Automobiles seems determined to concentrate its efforts on the markets where the benefits are more attractive and we have seen that they do not hesitate to check out even some models in certain markets, as was the case with the Fiat 500 in Brazil, where the model is not sold any more since the end of last year.
