Fiat 500: 1.5-million

One of the ostensible reasons for buying a Fiat 500 is the little car’s “Italian-ness.” It has style.

One of the ostensible reasons for buying a Fiat 500 is the little car’s “Italian-ness.” It has style. Panache. Presence. Character. All packed into a 90.6-inch wheelbase.

Funny thing about the Fiat 500, however.

Last week, there was a celebration in a plant that had just completed the build of the 1,500,000th Fiat 500, a “Pop” model painted Gelato White.

But the plant wasn’t in Turin. Rather Tychy.

As in Poland.

It took eight years, four months for that number of 500s, which are sold in over 100 countries, to be built.

Incidentally. Tychy isn’t the only build location for the 500.

There is another assembly plant. Toluca.

As in Mexico.

There are, however, boatloads of Italian style.
