Fiat’s (FIA.MI) luxury brand Maserati is planning to sell approximately 13,000 units of the new Quattroporte generation in 2013 and by 2015 the carmaker wants its total sales to reach 50,000 units annually. This is a huge sales target considering the fact that Maserati has only sold 6,159 units last year and 4,700 units in the first three quarter of this year.
The Fiat-owned Maserati’s Quattroporte is the second car built from a shared car body to be launched by Fiat since the start of its 2009 partnership with Chrysler.
Fiat will be launching its new electric 500 in LA at the end of the month. The first official images of the Fiat 500e have been revealed just days out from the electric city car’s unveiling at the 2012 Los Angeles motor show on November 30.
Fiat is keeping tight-lipped on the details of the 500e until its LA debut, but we know its on sale in California from 2013 and it’s likely to have a range of about 100 miles from a six-hour charge.
