Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne hopes that betting billions of euros on Alfa Romeo will reverse a decade of losses and six years of collapsing sales at the sporty brand. This year, Alfa’s sales are likely to fall below 100,000 units for the first time since 1969. Marchionne’s new plan for Alfa – his fourth since he joined Fiat in June 2004 – has the same goal as the one he introduced for its sister company, Fiat’s premium subsidiary, Maserati. Under the plan, Alfa will focus on developing premium vehicles to be exported worldwide from Italy.
An effective Alfa relaunch is a crucial element in Marchionne’s broader strategy to return Fiat’s automotive division to profitability in Europe by 2016. Fiat lost 700 million euros ($928 million) last year in Europe and so far Alfa has yet to make a profit under Marchionne’s nine-year watch.

For the fourth time in nine years, Fiat-Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne plans to introduce another revival strategy for the Alfa Romeo brand as reported by Jason Sui with AutoGuide.com.
According to Marchionne, the Italian automaker is continuing “to work in a pretty determined fashion in trying to reshape the Alfa Romeo platform and I think we will be in a position to outline more at the end of the first quarter of 2014.” The CEO plans to introduce a new five-year strategy for Fiat Group and Chrysler next year, most likely in late April along with the companies’ first-quarter earnings report.
