Fiat’s Turkish JV eyes $1B investment to build Bravo successor

Fiat's joint venture in Turkey, Tofas, is planning a $1-billion investment to build a family of compact cars replacing the Bravo in Europe. Three new cars will be built starting next year, primarily for export. According to sources of Automotive News Europe, the family will include a hatchback, sedan and station wagon.

The hatchback and the sedan will replace the Bravo and the Linea, respectively. According to Tofas last year, it would invest $520 million to build 580,000 units of a new sedan model. It recently announced that it would produce 700,000 units of a new hatchback and station wagon in Turkey, for a total investment of $1 billion starting this year while the production will run from 2016 to 2023.

Tofas said in a filing with the bourse that a significant portion of the vehicles are for exports, adding that discussion with Fiat on the details for the conditions of investment, sales and procurement are already in the final stage. Tofas saw sales of the Bravo drop 59 percent to 3,078 units in the first nine months of 2014, according to JATO Dynamics.

Bravo successor is the second vehicle to be introduced by Fiat in the U.S.

Fiat is adding the successor to the Bravo to its 500 lineup as part of a strategy to further boost its demand in the U.S. There were apprehensions on the brand being relaunched in the U.S. with the small model but expectations were exceeded by the early sales figures.

The showrooms have only recently displayed the cabriolet version of the baby hatchback and the Abarth and EV versions are scheduled to follow soon.

US brand boss Laura Soaves said that the company is preparing to offer a larger model; however, she stressed that Fiat will not want to take business away from Chrysler’s traditional markets in the US.
