Fiat 500L On Its Way!



The first shipment of new Fiat 500L MPVs bound for the North American market has left the the Montenegrin port city of Bar last Friday, May 10. The shipment of 3,100 Fiat 500Ls will arrive at the Port of Baltimore in approximately two weeks!




The roomy Fiat 500L is manufactured in one of the most modern car factories in Europe located in Kragujevac, Serbia. The former Zastava works factory was acquired by Fiat in 2008 and has been completely revamped with the help of $1.3 billion investment to make the factory a cutting edge facility. At full capacity, the Fiat 500L factory can produce up to 200,000 cars, with 99 percent of its production expected to be exported to more than 100 countries. Look forward to seeing the Fiat 500L arriving at US Fiat Studios next month.

UPDATE!
Below is the video of the Fiat 500L arriving at the Port of Baltimore!


You'll notice some of the Fiat 500Ls have different covers. Fiat is testing out new shipping protectant coverings.
