2012-06-04 07:42

MILAN, Italy - Italian carmaker Fiat has an Italian marketing offer that will enable Italians who buy a enw Fiat to pay only a euro a litre at participating petrol stations.

Italy currently has the highest petrol prices in Europe, costing an average of 1.83 euros/litre (about R20/litre).

Italian car sales are in the fifth year of a decline, falling from 2.49-million vehicles sold in 2007 to an expected 1.46-million in 2012.

UP TO THREE YEARS

Italy is Fiat's biggest market - 31.4% market share in April 2012. Car sales have fallen by 21% in the first three months of 2012 from the same period a year earlier.

The offer will be based on a calculation of the owner's potential driving distance, with effects that can last for up to three years, the report said.

    Would not be legal in ZA, as it would be seen as discounting the petrol price. But even if it was I still would not buy another Fiat ever again.
