The Punto has been axed and focus will be on the 500 and Panda.

At the presentation of FCA’s new five-year plan, the company outlined outlined detailed plans for Jeep, Maserati, Alfa Romeo and Ram.

Company boss Sergio Marchionne said Fiat "is very well-placed to exploit battery-electric city car opportunities in jurisdictions where access for internal combustion vehicles will be increasingly restricted". The company is readying a new electric version to debut in 2020 and a mild hybrid next year.

The Punto will be axed, and possibly, the Tipo. Given that production plants for the 500 are already in place overseas, an India-only production of the 500 would seem difficult.
