The Fiat 500 continues to break sales records! Sales of the Fiat 500 for the month of November were 3,603, up 123 percent over last year's November sales of 1,618 units. This is the ninth-consecutive month this year in which the Fiat 500 has set a sales record.
These figures are even more impressive considering the east coast of the United States was still recovering from Hurricane Sandy. The largest Atlantic hurricane on record devastated key Fiat sales markets, particularly in the Mid-Atlantic and North Eastern region of the United States. Dealers also report a shortage of the popular Fiat 500c Cabrios in the South East sales area as Fiat scrambles to keep up with the demand.
November sales figures brings the total year to date number of Fiat 500s sold in the US in 2012 to 40,065, maintaining the 130 percent sales increase over last year's YTD total of 17,444.
In November, Fiat celebrated selling their millionth Fiat 500 worldwide since its launch in 2007. The Fiat 500 is manufactured in Tychy, Poland and Toluca, Mexico and sold in over 100 countries.
Also in November, we saw the exciting previews of the Fiat 500e all electric vehicle, the roomy 5 seater Fiat 500L multi-purpose vehicle and the high performance Fiat 500c Abarth Cabrio. These new models will make their way into Fiat Studios in the first and second quarter of 2013.
