Surprisingly, even though Fiat sold only 20 percent more cars than its American counterpart, it has more than triple the number of employees according to the data provided by the two companies (Fiat: 180,227 employees at the end of December 2007, Chrysler: 54,007 employees at the end of December 2008).
As for regional market shares, North America aside where Chrysler dominates with 11.3 percent of the market compared to Fiat's or shall we say, Maserati's and Ferrari's combined 0.1 percent share, the Italians are better everywhere else.
