Fiat India's JV with Tata Motors sees impressive 20.48% net profit surge, reaching Rs 759 crore in FY 2022-23

Fiat India Automobiles, a joint venture company between Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A. (now known as Stellantis Europe S.p.A.) and Tata Motors Limited, reported a remarkable 20.48% surge in net profit, amounting to Rs 759 crore during year ending March 2023. 

This notable increase was driven by the company's steady revenue growth, which reached Rs 21,592 crore, representing a significant jump of 36.24%.

As per corporate filings sourced from Tofler, a data analytics firm, Fiat India Automobiles, achieved a significant milestone by rolling out 1 million cars from its production line. Among these, 500,000 units were the popular Tata Nexon model. The Tata Nexon, a flagship model for Fiat India Automobiles, experienced an exceptional YoY (year on year) sales growth of about 40%. This included 29,800 units of the Tata Nexon EV, showcasing the increasing demand for electric vehicles in the market.

The domestic sales experienced a remarkable YoY increase of approximately 39%, with 194,265 vehicles sold in various variants. However, exports to right-hand drive (RHD) markets worldwide saw a decrease of about 7% YoY, with 5,314 vehicles shipped.

Expansion and Production Initiatives 
During the same period, Fiat India Automobiles commenced production of the Jeep Meridian, catering to domestic and export markets, including developed regions like Japan and Australia. Additionally, the company introduced the production of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, further expanding its product portfolio.

In the engine segment, Fiat India Automobiles reported a significant boost in its engine segment, selling 318,001 units of engine units, marking a YoY increase of approximately 42%. This growth stemmed from engine and traction motor supplies to leading automotive manufacturers such as Tata Motors and MG Motors. However, the production of the C636 transmission experienced a marginal YoY decline of about 4%.

However, despite its impressive financial performance, the company's board decided not to recommend any dividend for the year. This strategic decision aims to preserve resources until the automobile industry stabilises, reflecting the uncertainties facing the auto market going forward. Fiat India Automobiles operates its manufacturing facility from the auto cluster hub of Ranjangaon in Maharashtra.
