The Aegea name will not be given to the production versions of the concept that made its debut at the Istanbul Motor Show last month.

Europe.autonews is quoting Olivier Francois, Fiat’s brand chief officer, in saying that the Aegea concept will birth a sedan, a hatchback, and a station wagon, but give up the Aegea name for the production versions. All three confirmed versions will be built at the company’s Turkish plant in Bursa. The final name of the product wasn’t disclosed. Mr Francois also confirmed that the Fiat Aegea lineup will be rolled out initially in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, thereby effectively ruling out India as a potential market for the lineup. The car will debut in Turkey in November.

    This looks like a car that can challenge City and Verna but not sure Fiat can do it. Looks like a good decision not to bring this. The way Fiat is working in India, they can flop any car. I somehow don’t like the front end of this car, better to work on it before the production version comes out.
