Fiat press release :
Fiat returns to the
Paris International Motor Show with a stunning stand where major world
débuts mingle with tried and tested models to underscore the brand’s
unique position on the international motoring stage.

exhibition area develops the theme of "the world I would like" seen
through the eyes of children. Because a brand with its sights set on the
future must listen to a younger generation who will be making the world
big one day. They shaped this stand themselves by giving free rein to
their imaginations and desire for a more eco-friendly future. The result
is a light-hearted, cheerful place, where houses stand on clouds and a
rainbow welcomes visitors, guiding them into the world of Fiat.
houses and clouds of a city dreamed up by children showcase our latest
motoring products, cars that represent another step towards sustainable

of place on the stand goes to a gem of engineering developed by Fiat
Powertrain Technologies: the 85 HP (900 cc) twin cylinder TwinAir engine
that visitors can admire on coloured windmills – to emphasise the
exhilarating lightness of this compact, hi-tech, high-performing engine –
and also installed in 4 versions of the Fiat 500 on show in Paris, all
equipped with the Start&Stop system as standard.

cars parading along the French catwalk include one clad in the new
Azzurro Volare shade, and a 500 by Diesel, the result of a joint venture
by the Fiat creative team and the world-renowned Italian label that is
exhibited with bodywork in Midnight Indigo Blue (a shade reminiscent of
denim) combined with an ivory hood.

area also features the original “500 Thousandth”, a show car developed
to celebrate the 500,000 units produced in just 31 months and the new
Blackjack special series, a Limited Edition distinguished by an
exclusive black body shade with opaque treatment.

stand also features a 500 configurator, like some sort of high-tech
toy, where visitors can customise their own car with buckets of paint
and needle and thread.

The forerunner of a new family of two-cylinder engines by FPT – Fiat Powertrain Technologies, the twin
cylinder TwinAir power unit deploys the revolutionary MultiAir system
combined with specific fluid dynamics optimised for maximum combustion
efficiency. By taking the concept of downsizing to the extreme and
masterfully tuning the basic mechanical, the new family – delivering
from 65 to 105 HP – also emits 30% less CO2 than an engine of
equal performance. This is a brand-new concept on the worldwide
motoring scene and confirms the leadership of the Fiat Group in this

with a view to technological innovation at the service of
eco-friendliness, other major new products are exhibited at the Paris
Show, beginning with a
Panda LPG equipped with
a 69 HP 1.2 dual fuel (petrol and LPG) engine, representing the
evergreen Fiat vehicle that turned 30 years of age last March and has so
far sold more than 6 million units throughout the world. From the end
of the year, an LPG range with no fewer than 6 models will also go on
sale throughout France and Europe, to confirm the Fiat brand’s constant
focus on environmental topics by researching and developing specific
solutions that are available today (LPG is a clean and economical fuel
and also a widely available energy source).

can also take a virtual video tour to appreciate the potential and
advantages of Fiat eco-technologies such as the Start&Stop system
and eco:Drive software. The former device temporarily turns off the
engine and restarts it to ensure reduced fuel consumption and noise in
the passenger compartment when the Start&Stop is in operation.
eco:Drive is an innovative software package developed by Fiat that
collects trip data through the car’s Blue&Me™ interface and analyses
them to provide the user with practical personalised tips for reducing
travelling costs and personal environmental impact. Based as it is on a
simple, efficient and accessible idea (the software is free of charge),
eco:Drive has been an immediate hit, as borne out by the 100,000 copies
of the system which have been downloaded to date since its launch (Paris
Motor Show 2008). Every day, more than 42,000 drivers use it and at
least 9 million journeys have been logged and analysed on the Fiat
database. Taking into account the contribution of all the drivers who
have joined eco:Ville, the online community of all Fiat eco-drivers, it
is possible to calculate an overall saving of approximately 3000 tonnes
of CO2.

The Fiat stand at the Paris show underscores
Fiat’s commitment in the field of environmental protection and its role
in making users aware that they should use their cars in a more
responsible, eco-friendly manner. It is no coincidence that, for the
third year in a row, Fiat is the most eco-friendly of the 10 top-selling
car brands in Europe, with an average CO2 emission level of
127.8 g/km, compared to the market average of 145.8 g/km (analyses
carried out by the independent institution Jato Dynamics). A fundamental
boost to obtaining this record has come from the extraordinary growth
of methane, the most eco-friendly and cost-effective fuel available on
the market today. A forward-thinking choice, made over ten years ago,
has made Fiat undisputed European leader in factory-fitted methane
systems (OEM), as demonstrated by the nearly 400,000 units sold to date
in the Natural Power range, a comprehensive range of dual fuel
(methane/petrol) cars and commercial vehicles able to meet any mobility

Motor Show also offers an ideal opportunity to take a close look at a 90
HP Doblò Emotion 1.6 (Euro 5) with Dualogic gearbox and Start&Stop
as standard. This represents the latest addition to a model that last
July achieved a target of one million units produced, including both the
commercial vehicle versions and the multi-space car. At the Paris show,
Fiat will also be presenting the most recent results of its ongoing
commitment to keeping up with motorists’ needs. This commitment is
exhibited in the multi-faceted nature of the product range, in new
models and also in updates to the existing range. All this vitality is
evident in the current production cars present on the stand: including
the new Qubo MY 2011 – the car on show is a 95 HP Trekking 1.3 MultiJet
II (Start&Stop as standard) – and a Punto EVO equipped with an 85 HP
1.3 MultiJet II in ECO configuration with Start&Stop as standard
that produces just 95 g/km of CO2.

spotlights will also be on the Bravo: the version at the show is fitted
with a 140 HP 1.4 MultiAir and Start&Stop system as standard. This
is one of the best petrol engines in the world as far as its
emission/power ratio is concerned (just 132 g/km) and is also top of its
class in terms of fuel consumption and torque availability within its
power band: 5.7 l/100 km over a combined cycle and a maximum torque of
230 Nm at 1750 rpm. The new power unit therefore guarantees maximum
respect for the environment (it is type-approved to Euro5 standards)
without detracting from performance and driving satisfaction. That’s not
all. For an even more dynamic driving experience, the Sport function
can be selected by pressing a button, which changes throttle response
and steering settings.

but not least, brochures and customised totems at the stand will
introduce visitors to the products of FGA Capital,a joint venture set up
between Fiat Group Automobiles and Crédit Agricole that specialises in
the automotive sector. The finance company operates within Italy and
across Europe with a single mission:supporting the sales of all Fiat
Group Automobiles and Chrysler brand vehicles by offering innovative
financial products with high added value services dedicated to the
dealership network, private customers and companies.
