Punto van to help Fiat target businesses

Fiat Professional’s New Punto Van 2012 has made its UK debut at this week’s Commercial Vehicle Show in Birmingham’s NEC.

The New Punto Van replaces the Grande Punto Van in the Fiat Professional line-up and brings a wealth of improvements over its predecessor, providing customers with a strong proposition in the car-derived van market, with a load capacity of 1.0 m3 and a payload of 520 kg.

New Punto Van 2012 features external styling changes with fully colour-coded front and rear bumpers, and an interior with new sportier seat fabrics and on the SX version there is a new dashboard with soft touch materials and an elegant design.

Standard equipment on all versions includes ESP, brake assistance, remote central locking, electric front windows, electrically adjustable and heated body coloured mirrors, trip computer, driver and passenger airbags, radio/CD/MP3 player, electric power steering, height and reach-adjustable steering wheel and a height-adjustable driver’s seat.

New Punto Van will be available with one diesel engine, the award-winning and best-selling 1.3 MultiJet II diesel, in three levels of power: 75bhp, 85bhp and 95bhp. Start-stop is fitted to the mid- and higher-powered versions.

The new range starts with the entry level 1.3 MultiJet II 75hp version at £10,990+VAT. 

The New Punto Van will become available to order from the end of April.

Fiat

Fiat is closing in on 3% market share with a strategy of building new products within the successful 500 brand.

From the original concept, the range now extends to six models, including the new 500X crossover, supported by the Fiat Panda and Punto, along with people-carrier versions of its van range.

The extended choice is appealing to more customers, with Fiat achieving sales growth of nearly 12% last year to 67,162 units.

An increasingly important factor in this growth is the fleet market, reflected in the appointment of Francis Bleasdale to the newly created role of fleet and used car director.

As part of an ambitious five-year plan revealed by FCA boss Sergio Marchionne last year, European dealers can expect a sports car and compact saloon in 2015, compact hatch and estate, as well as a new 500 replacement in 2016, a C-segment crossover in 2017 and the replacement for the new Panda in 2018.

Note: Manufacturers administer the franchised contracts for cars and LCVs in different ways. Broadly, for some the contract to sell cars and LCVs is managed through a separate dealer contract. For others one contract covers both vehicle types.

AMi seeks to acknowledge the difference and reflect it in the count of each dealer groups total franchised outlets (franchised businesses) and sites (locations).

Fiat treats car and LCV sales as coming under separate contracts –AMi counts each individually.
