  • Description

    AFTER THE PARIS AND LONDON INTERNATIONAL MOTOR SHOWS - TURIN, WITH A RECORD OF 68 DIFFERENT MODELS ON VIEW FROM 13 COUNTRIES IN AND OUT OF THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC COMMUNITY.

    PRESIDENT SEGNI OF ITALY OPENED THE SHOW - THE 44TH - YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY) THE DAY FIAT ANNOUNCED PRICE CUTS ON SOME OF THEIR CARS TO COUNTER THOSE RECENTLY ANNOUNCED BY FORD, VOLKSWAGEN, DKW AND OTHER FOREIGN COMPETITORS.

    THE FOREIGN MANUFACTURERS ARE MAKING A STRONG BID TO CAPTURE A LARGER SLICE OF THE ITALIAN MARKET. THAT IS NOW THAT IMPORT RESTRICTIONS ON CARS HAVE BEEN RELAXED AS PART OF THE GRADUAL ABOLITION OF TARIFFS IN COMMON MARKET COUNTRIES. AS A RESULT, CR IMPORTS HAVE ALREADY JUMPED MORE THAN DOUBLE IN THE FIRST SIX MONTHS OF HIS YEAR FOR THE SAME PERIOD LAST YEAR. AND THE NUMBER OF FOREIGN MODELS ON SHOW THIS YEAR IS GREATLY INCREASED.

    IN THEIR COUNTER-DRIVE, ITALIAN MANUFACTURERS HAVE INTRODUCED A NUMBER OF NEW MODELS, LIKE THE FIAT 2300, AND BERTONE'S ASA 1000. BRITAIN IS REGARDED AS ONE OF THE MOST FORMIDABLE FOREIGN COMPETITORS THIS YEAR WITH FRANCE, GERMANY AND THE UNITED STATES HOLDING IMPORTANT PLACES IN THE SHOW. JAPAN IS EXHIBITING FOR THE FIRST TIME.
