Fiat S.P.A or Fiat which stands as an acronym for FabbricalItalianaAutomobili Torino or the Italian Automobile Factory of Turin is among the founders of the European motor industry which was formed by a group of investors that included Giovanni Agnelli, on July 11, 1899. Fiat is Italy's largest industrial enterprise and its headquarter is situated in Turin, Northern Italy. Fiat altered its profession of engines and automobiles into an obsession it possessed towards every form of vehicle that provided mobility for either goods or individuals, may it be cars for customers or trucks used for agricultural purposes, marine or aeronautical engines or space launchers, Fiat was all over everything.

Fiat's activity sphere included automotive, finance, publishing and metallurgy. However in 2003, Fiat restructured its central business ideas and started to focus largely on the automotive sector in the form of automotive manufacturing and services. Businesses that were considered as no longer being strategic or calculated were sold off and very careful and accurate cost containment actions were taken resulting in an insightful re-launch in the industry enabling Fiat to reach at post profit stage in 2005 after hitting the operating breakeven point in the previous year. The company continued to focus on its plans to strengthen the company's commercial and industrial structure in 2007 especially through targeting alliances on potential high growth markets including India, Russia and China.

The brands that operate under the Fiat Group Automobiles include the production and sale of Fiat, the light commercial vehicle Fiat professional, Alfa Romeo, Abarth and Lancia.
