One Millionth Fiat 500 Rolls Off Assembly Line


Five years after its introduction, the Fiat 500 is still going strong. The 1 millionth Fiat 500 rolled off its European assembly line in Tychy, Poland today. The millionth car was a Fiat 500 Abarth (or, as it is known in Europe, an Abarth 500) and brings the world wide tally of Fiat 500s built to 1,100,000 cars when Toluca, Mexico production is added in.

The Fiat 500 can be a fun track day car...

Besides the good news for Fiat, this represents a significant milestone in affordable transportation, because the modern Fiat 500 is developing a legacy of making classic Italian design accessible to anyone who appreciates style with substance. You no longer have to purchase a $150,000 Ferrari to enjoy Italian design.

an elegant night on the town city car...

The hallmark of the Fiat 500 is it is highly functional and fully customizable. Its functionality can be seen with many owners using the vehicle as a family car during the week and then an enjoyable track car on weekends. With more than 500,000 possible trim and equipment combinations, there is virtually no limit to how you can personalize the 500. Ultra-sport, elegant city car or comfortable cruiser, the Fiat 500 has the design panache to pull it off.

and a practical vacation car, all rolled up into one.

Below is a list of the awards the Fiat 500 has won in the US since its introduction in 2011.
