What the hell is wrong with these Fiat guys :

M&M would have launched the much-awaited Xylo (previously known as Ingenio), a multi-purpose vehicle, this month, while Fiat India Automobiles (FIAL) had scheduled the launch of Linea, a mid-size sedan, in December. An executive from M&M said, "The sentiments were already down, but due to the terror attacks in Mumbai, we have decided to shift the launch date of the Xylo from this month to next month."

A spokesperson for FIAL said, "We have decided to move the launch date of Linea due to the prevailing conditions in Mumbai. Our earlier launch date was December 16. We will take a call on the rescheduled date on Monday."

No, Fiat Linea is not going to launch in December. The company has now postponed the launch to next year because of the recent terror attack in Mumbai. Fiat has its headquarters in Mumbai and does not want to launch its highly aspirated car, Linea at the time when people are fighting the aftermaths of the attack.

Unable to understand. What's wrong if they have postponed their launch?

They have a nice teaser going around regarding this saying "We dont feel like celebrating the joy of Linea now and it will herald with the right spirit, joy and positivity in the new year"

Since we have waited for over a year for Linea i guess we have learnt to have patience from Fiat to wait till Jan. Mahindra wont get much bashing for late launch of XYLO cos its not as awaited model like Linea. Sure Linea has lost some buyers . I would have preferred if they had launched in Sept- Oct which was the apt time. But anyways i guess Fiat has their own plans.
