The Italian based automaker Fiat has recently decided to produce its next generation of the popular 500 model in Poland, exclusively.
The announcement hasn’t been made yet by the car manufacturer and it started out as a rumor put together by Automotive News Europe from three sources. Fiat will stop producing the 500 over-seas, at Chrysler’s assemble plant in Mexico from 2015, when the next generation of the model will make its way onto the market. Production will be moved to Poland and more work will be transferred to the Tychy plant, which hasn’t seen good days ever since the carmaker has decided to move the Panda production to Italy.
Fiat and Chrysler haven’t confirmed or denied this rumor yet and if it turns out to be more than a rumor than the next generation of the 500 will be identical on both continents, in the United States and in Europe. Production of the new-gen Fiat 500 in southern Poland is expected to begin in 2015, once the model will be unveiled. Additional details on this subject remain unknown for the moment and will probably be announced by the carmaker soon.
