The company, which is a subsidiary of Fiat Group Automobiles of Italy, plans to set up 100 dealer sales points across the country by March 2014, out of which seven would be located in the north-east.
The company also plans to launch nine models, both refreshed and new within 2016, he told reporters.
Fiat, which parted sales and marketing tie-up with Tata Motors from April this year, continues to share the production facility with the Tata company.
Its average sales per month stands at 1,000 units, Basavanhalli said.
