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 has enjoyed the strongest growth rates of any major car brands during 2013, with September sales up nearly 30% and annual sales jumping nearly 20% to the end of September.

Its confident focus on small cars has provided a strong message to buyers, particularly regarding the growing 500 family, which now includes the 500L and 500L MPW.

Proof that it has truly engaged with its target market can be seen in the success of the spoof 'Motherhood' video, which has so far attracted 4.2 million viewers on Fiat's official YouTube channel.

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.
