History - Fiat and Chrysler Group
In 2011, Fiat increased its ownership interest in Chrysler from 20% to 25% following achievement of the first of three performance-related events. As outlined in its June 10, 2009 Operating Agreement, Chrysler Group issued an irrevocable commitment letter to the U.S. Treasury stating that the Company has received the appropriate governmental approvals and will begin commercial production of the Fully Integrated Robotized Engine (FIRE) in its Dundee, Mich., facility. As a result, Fiat's ownership interest increased automatically under the terms of the Operating Agreement. The ownership interests of Chrysler Group's members are now: · UAW VEBA 63.5% · Fiat 25.0% · US Treasury 9.2% · Canadian Governments 2.3% The first North American application of the 1.4-liter FIRE engine with MultiAir Technology will be in the new Fiat 500, which Chrysler Group will begin to distribute soon through newly appointed dealers. Fiat has the opportunity to further increase its ownership in Chrysler to 35%, in 5% increments, through two additional performance-related milestones. The first milestone relates to revenue and sales growth outside of the NAFTA region. The second milestone relates to commercial production in the United States of a 40 mile per gallon vehicle based on Fiat platform technology.

Practical, versatile and responsive. Suited to customers who are increasingly in tune with environmental issues and technological innovation. Fiat has always produced models which offer practical and affordable technological solutions, while remaining faithful to the tradition of Italian design. In recent years, the brand has also focused increasing attention on the ecological profile of its products. In fact, the constant commitment to finding concrete solutions, deployable now, has led to Fiat having the lowest average CO2 emissions among the top selling brands in Europe for more than 3 years running (source: JATO Dynamics).
New products released in 2010 were also the result of the brand's commitment to the environment. For example, the Fiat 500 and Fiat 500C equipped with the innovative 85 hp two-cylinder TwinAir, which offers up to a 30% reduction in CO2 emissions and the Doblò Natural Power, the latest addition to the bifuel (CNG/gasoline) range. Fiat's product line-up ranges from the agile Panda, 500 and 500C to modern, versatile models such as the Punto Evo, Grande Punto, Bravo and Idea and, finally, to the new Doblò MPV, the Sedici SUV and the original Fiat Qubo and Fiat Linea, which is sold in markets outside Western Europe.

Sportiness, technology, comfort and elegance all come together to create a distinctive personality and style that characterize Alfa Romeo, an historic Italian marque that celebrated a century of successes in 2010. It continues to embody the distinctive values recognized by generations of car enthusiasts: agility, spirit, style. That style comes from the combination of attractive proportions with state-of-the-art technology that offers optimum power and fuel consumption and ecological performance. As demonstrated by the Giulietta, the compact whose name comes from Alfa Romeo's rich past and which embodies the brand's new signature style and technology. Launched in the Spring of 2010, this new model received 5 stars from Euro NCAP and was named "Auto Europa 2010". The Giulietta sits alongside the peppy MiTo, the spirited 159 and 159 Station Wagon, the Spider, an all-time classic of Italian motoring, and the Brera, the true embodiment of style.

For more than 100 years, the brand has been offering elegant models that are adaptable to everyday life, such as the compact Ypsilon, the Musa city limousine and the Delta, which merges attractive styling with a bold and innovative temperament. These values are also reflected in the bifuel (LPG/gasoline) ECOCHIC range, an innovative concept in eco-friendly automobiles that are luxurious yet affordable, responsive yet fuel efficient. As part of the integration of the distribution activities of Fiat Group Automobiles and Chrysler Group in Europe, a reorganization of the Chrysler and Lancia sales networks was initiated in May 2010 which will result in the creation, by the end of 2014, of a new integrated distribution network with more than 1,000 points of sale across Europe.
