Italian Car Production (Brand) : 1981-90

The Uno was a huge success for Fiat

Things went well for Italian car manufacturing at this time. 1989 was a record, with nearly 2 million cars made. Fiat led the way with the Uno model being a huge success. The Panda and Tipo also added to the volume late in the decade. The negative was the more profitable larger models were not doing so well, but numerically at least it was the best of times for Fiat. Over 1.4 million fiat cars were made in 1989.

Alfa Romeo 33

Alfa Romeo also had a record in that same year, at 233,000 cars produced. The 33 and 75 were solid performers while the new 164 model was proving popular. For Autobianchi (exported as a Lancia) the Y10 was doing well. The Thedra and Gamma models were a success for Lancia.

On the downside, Innocenti was running out of time and production fell below Ferrari by 1990. The sizable 'Other' figure was based around Bertone, manufacturing in fringe models such as cabriolets and coupès in behalf of well known car companies.
