Italian new car registrations rose a stronger-than-expected 7.9 percent in July, data from the Transport Ministry showed on Tuesday, with Fiat's market share bouncing off a historic low in June to 28.7%, according to Reuters. The news agency said the Fiat group continued to lag the overall market, with sales rising 5.2%, but it was still a positive sign for the loss-making car maker, which had seen sales fall for all but two of the last 18 months, dragging it deep into crisis.
