i would have thought march was the big month to coincide with the new plate, bound to drop off the month after Thumb Up

Doh!  :-\ You are right. It's been a hectic day, brain worn out.  :oops:

However, 288 for March @ 14.5 per dealer is hardly room for celebration if you are CEO of Abarth  :pray:

    What rubbish.  Abarth was relaunched as a niche brand and will stay that way.  It's not intended (or designed) to chase volume sales.

    Grey is the standard colour on Evo because that's the colour they want to be seen on the roads.  It's somewhat ironic, though, that most people have been paying the extra to opt for white.

    Are you joking  :crazy:

    There were 366,101 cars registered in March in the UK.

    Abarth sold 9 APEs in April.

    That's nine cars. Niche?

    FIAT is here to to make a profit from Abarth not satisfy our need for a rare hatchback.

    I'd call 900 niche!

    Are you joking  :crazy:

    Firstly, I was talking globally, and secondly, I wasn't talking about the APE other than to answer DF's question about colour.

    :crazy: right back at you.

    right back at you.

    I was talking globally too, and using the APE as an example.

    If I was on the Abarth board I'd be worried. I'm not so I sleep soundly.

    Anyway, who cares? Such a nice experience being part of an exclusive club. So many people have never heard of Abarth, ask me what the car is, give the thumbs up, wrench their necks off when it passes... :thumb:

    Let's put this into perspective.

    Sales for 2010.

    Abarth had 0.07% of UK car market. That is TINY not niche.

    So who had same, similar or less market share?

    Rolls Royce 0.02%
    Proton 0.04%
    Perudua 0.04%
    MG 0.01%  ???
    Lotus 0.03%
    Infiniti 0.01%
    Hummer 0%
    Dodge 0.04%
    Daimler 0%
    Daihatsu 0.01%
    Corvette 0%
    Chrysler 0.07%
    Cadillac 0%
    Bentley 0.05%

    Fiat had 2.61% market share

    There were over 4 x more Porsches registered than Abarths  8) Now that's what I call exclusive.

    Perspective?  OK.

    Abarth's sales globally and in the UK exceeded targets.  To the extent that extra production had to be sought.

    Enough.

    which is why we will keep seeing Abarth Uk at major events and hopefully we will be given freebie tickets to show off the cars to support Abarth UK  ;D

    *cough* Silverstone classic tickets *cough*

    OK Statoholics it is that time again

    May 2011 just in (well i had it on Friday but i was off so sorry for the delay)

    A500               57
    A500C             15

    500's Total       72

    AGP                 0   
    APE                 9    yep the same as last month


    All Abarth        81


    Here are the figures for the 5 months Jan-May YTD

    A500              393
    A500C            119

    500's Total      512

    AGP                  1   
    APE                 77


    All Abarth       590


    In terms of colours well for APE's RED is still the rare colour to have with 12.987% of YTD being that colour but Black is gaining in popularity in this years registrations.

    A500 just 14.5% have been Grey and 51.9% have been white so it is Red & Black with the other 33.6%.

    In terms of year on year A500 are down May 10   89  May 11   57 and 5 month YTD May 10  574  May 11  393

    Just on the FGA front Fiat does have a product in the TOP 20 of NCR's 2011 which Renault, Citroen, Honda, Skoda, Seat & Hyundai do not although obviously Nissan (owned by Renault) has the Cashcow in the top 20 and Peugeot (PSA group which is Citroen & Peugeot) has the 207 in and VAG has Audi and VW in (Audi,Bugatti,Lamborghini,Seat & Skoda).

    The group is missing the Panda big time in volume sales but the new one will be here soon.

    interesting read on figures, the red APE looks great btw Daron's yesterday was dazzling!

    and good to see the ratio of 500c to 500 is much better than we were discussing yesterday, I would think once they have the manual box in the 500c the sales will again jump.

    as for figures being down, you can't compare 12 months ago to what the market is today, money is a big issue everywhere.

    Delaney what would be a interesting comparison is how many sold 3 yrs old. I believe alot of people change cars on average every 3 years, so therefore in theory next year could see better figures?

    Very sorry Statoholics in getting your monthly fix i have had the data since the begining of the week but things are very busy looking at other data.

    June 2011
    A500               62
    A500C             29

    500's Total       91

    AGP                 0   
    APE                 13


    All Abarth        104

    Here are the figures for the 6 months Jan-June YTD

    A500              454 * this has been adjusted as the press car A500C as used on TP & at Goodwood is a Manual
    A500C            149    and one of my filters is transmission

    500's Total      603

    AGP                  1   
    APE                 90


    All Abarth       694


    We have had a full year of Abarth Punto Evo's now as the first ones were registered in July 10 and i can tell you that RED is the most exclusive APE to have with less being registered in a year than White A500's registered in June 11. So the 12 month total for APE's is 177.
