Fiat breaks the 1 million production barrier with the 500

The 1,000,000th Fiat 500 rolled off the assembly line in Poland, after five and a half years of production.

Manufactured since 2007 in Poland and since 2011 in Mexico, the new Fiat 500 is sold in over 100 countries around the world, from Italy to Brazil, South Africa to Japan and the United States to the Middle East.

The record-breaking model is a Lounge version painted in Funk White and fitted with the 1.2-liter 69 HP engine. Like most cars produced so far, the milestone vehicle is unique. Fiat says that of the million units produced it is really hard to find two identical Fiat 500s, due to the thousands of possible combinations – combining exterior colours, interiors, engines, fuel systems and equipment.

Launched on July 4 2007, the Fiat 500 reached top sales volumes in 2009, when approximately 186,000 units were delivered to customers. The car was launched in North America in 2011 and since then, over 73,000 vehicles have been registered on the continent.

The Fiat 500 range today includes two versions (saloon and convertible), six trim levels (Pop, Pop Star, Colour Therapy, Lounge, Street and “By Gucci”) and five engine versions (1.2 69 HP, 0.9 TwinAir Turbo 85, 1.4 16v 100 HP, 1.2 69 HP EasyPower and 1.3 MultiJet 16v 95 HP).
