"Fiat Group Automobiles S.p.A." was created on 1 February 2007 from Fiat Auto S.p.A.
Simultaneously, the four divisions of Fiat Auto (Fiat, Alfa Romeo, Lancia and Fiat Veicoli Commerciali) were made into four Società per azioni, all controlled 100 percent by Fiat Group Automobiles. The former brand directors became CEOs of the new societies, while the employees and production facilities remained under Fiat Group Automobiles.
At the same time the, Abarth brand was relaunched as Abarth & C. S.p.A., a fifth independent society again owned 100 percent by Fiat Group Automobiles.
