Fiat Punto to get a replacement in 2016

The Italian based automaker Fiat will introduce a replacement for the current Punto generation over the next couple of years.

The announcement is not official yet and it is actually part of a report, which is saying that after a long production of the popular hatchback, the model will soon get a replacement. According to Automotive News Europe, the Fiat Punto replacement will be coming in 2016 and it will be rebadged as the 500 Plus. This means that it will be part of the extended Fiat 500 family and it will slot between the three-door 500 and its larger brother, the 500L small minivan.

The new Fiat 500 Plus will most likely be assembled at the Tychy factory in Poland, which is also making the classic 500 mini, unlike the current Punto, which is being produced at the Fiat Melfi plant, in Italy. The carmaker is planning a 784m USD investment in the Polish factory and this means upgraded machinery and probably more people hired. The Fiat 500 Plus being assembled in Poland means that the Melfi facility will make room for producing the new Jeep Renegade and the future Fiat 500X crossover.
