If you're wondering where you can pick up a new Alfa Romeo 4C when it arrives at the end of the year, you should find if your nearest Fiat dealer is one of the best selling in the nation.
Automotive News is reporting that only a small number of the 202 Fiat dealers will be able to sell the 1,000 Alfa Romeo 4Cs coming to the states each year. How will Chrysler determine which Fiat dealers will be able to sell the 4C? By seeing which Fiat dealers that meet sales and customer service goals.
"The 4C is the first vehicle that comes at the end of this calendar year, and it's going to go to the current Fiat dealers that are performing.So if you're selling and you're taking care of your customer, you'll be first up for Alfa Romeo," said Peter Grady, Chrysler Group vice president for network development and fleet.
One stipulation that was originally planned for Fiat dealers who wanted Alfa Romeo was to have a mandatory inclusion of an attached service department. This has been pushed back to 2015 when more Alfa Romeo models arrive.
