Fiat fuels sales with fixed petrol prices
The car brand Fiat has developed an interesting initiative to help their Italian consumers. Because higher and higher fuel prices may have put off potential customers from buying a new car, the carmaker is fixing petrol prices at 1 euro per litre for the next 3 years for all new Fiat customers.
Why it matters
Petrol prices in Italy are a hot topic and new car sales have taken a direct hit. Fiat is hoping that this concrete measure will allow customers to plan their spending more accurately rather than be subjected to fluctuating petrol prices. In times of financial crisis, what can brands do to help lift sales, whilst reassuring their customers that they are getting their money’s worth?
The UTAS Centre has developed the first Turkish car not to need a driver. The autonomous car works by using a radar device that can calculate distances using a laser.
Italian Motor Village, in the heart of Lisbon, is much more than a car dealership for Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo. This unique space is also a trendy cafe – the Spazio Dual City Caffe, under the supervision of the very talented Italian-American Chef Michael Guerrieri, and home of an association of young artists – the Art in Park Association. Cars, food,and plenty of combined talent under the same roof. The first place of its kind!
