Whither the 4c?
From what I remember, Alfa promised to make 3,500 4cs of which 1000 were destined to stay in Europe with the UK getting 60 Launch Editions and 200 regular production cars.
We are now some way from the launch date and according to Howmanyleft (not the most reliable source I know) up to the end of June 2015, there were 52 Launch Editions on the UK roads, plus 1 or 2 SORN and 83 Production models - only 22 of which were registered in Q1 and Q2/2015 - less than one a week.
AutoTrader currently has 43 speculators cars on sale, including some new, some pre-reg and some 2nd hand. The majority of these seem to be at less than 500 miles with many on delivery miles only.
Mangoletsi even have an unregistered Launch Edition that has neverthless acquired 865 road miles! (That was some test drive on trade plates!)
In the US for the year to the end of November Alfa have sold 606 cars and demand has dropped from 97 in January to only 24 in November. (possibly seasonal and January was pent-up demand), I don't have figures for other Alfa markets, South Africa, Australia, Japan etc.
The question is, how long will it take to shift the 3500 units and how long before everyone who wanted a new 4c has got one?
