After acquiring a majority stake in Zastava in the autumn of 2008, Fiat continued production of this vehicle under the Fiat Punto Classic name from March 2009. The round Fiat badge, found only on the bonnet of second-generation models, was introduced on the tailgate of the second generation facelift. On 1 June 2005, Fiat produced the 6,000,000th Punto at the Melfi plant. The Punto was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro, and originated as a 1990 design proposal for Renault’s project X57, which would become the Renault Clio.
From only five door version was available in Europe. The Grande Punto was launched in India during the Delhi Auto Expo in January 2008, with sales starting in June 2009. The Punto for the Indian market was manufactured by the Fiat / Tata Motors joint venture Fiat India Automobiles Ltd in a new plant in Ranjangaon, Maharashtra and based on the same 310 project of the Brazilian Punto.
It has been available with the 1.2 litre petrol engine and later, also with the 1.3 litre diesel engine, the version of 2013 featured a newer, more modern engine. It was launched for the first time in Chile in 2007. It ended production in Italy in November 2010. The third generation of the car was marketed between 2005 and 2009 as the Grande Punto, and between 2009 and 2012 as the Punto Evo, when the single-word Punto name was reintroduced. As of May 2013, nearly nine million units had been sold globally.
Produced by Fiat Powertrain Technologies, they were based on the discontinued Tritec engines. All non Turbo petrol models produced in Brazil are flex-fuel. The Italian made Grande Punto was launched in Chile and the Dominican rice with milk in spanish Republic in petrol and diesel versions. The Grande Punto also went on sale in South Africa in 2006, replacing the previous generation. Production was stopped in middle of 2011, and restarted in 2013, albeit very briefly.
It seems to mean something like “little piece of bread” Sincerly, I hope this helps. There are obviously specific signs for many words available in sign language that are more appropriate for daily usage. It was at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo that Fiat India first shared its plan to bring 4 new cars to India.
