Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT) was established in January 2012, as a spinoff from Fiat Group Automobiles, which includes all the activities related to powertrains and transmissions to Fiat Group Powertrains, Iveco Motors and Fiat Group's research center.[2]

Between 2005 and 2011, the company was called Fiat Powertrain Technologies S.p.A. and included industrial and commercial power train activities that are now a separate entity called FPT Industrial and a subsidiary of Fiat Industrial. The company was originally formed in March 2005 following the dissolution of joint venture with General Motors. It is a successor to Sofim.[citation needed]

FPT Industrial[edit]

As a result of partial and proportional demerger of Fiat S.p.A. TO Fiat Industrial S.p.A., Fiat Powertrain Technologies S.p.A. was split into Fiat Powertrain and FPT Industrial S.p.A., effectively on 2001-01-01.

Fiat Industrial S.p.A. produces industrial, marine and commercial engines and powertrains.
