Fiat will maintain a philosophy of keeping its cars functional yet fun. and on using a “less is more” approach to produce more affordable and sustainable cars, reducing polluting materials such as chrome, alloys, leather, and the foams in seats.

That car will then be followed by one new model every year.”
