Sovereign.

Although today we seem to be very aware of the limitations of things (the lack of this and that), a style icon like the Fiat 500 doesn’t seem to feel the years and can even undergo more radical changes. to defy Already 65 years now. The undoubted appeal and design recognition of the Fiat 500 is the basis of this eternal durability. Meanwhile, this line of timeless genius that originally came from the pen of Dante Giacosa has begun a third life in the form of in our eyes a good electric car. Better than any other electric car. This BEV is therefore very popular and in Mirafiori, where the first 500 have already been rolled off the line, people are very happy with this success.

Increased production versus current.

Production of the electric Fiat 500 increased by 39.3% in Mirafiori in the first half of 2022. Thus, the plant in Turin is one of the bright spots in the Italian Stellantis sector, which as a group has recorded a decrease in production by 13.7% since January compared to the first 6 months of 2021. Especially the fact that few of the company’s cars rolled off the production line. , contributes to the decrease (-37.2%). Mirafiori, meanwhile, produced 48,760 units (500th + Levante) from January to date, compared to 35,014 units last year (+39.3%). Since January, the 500 BEV assembly line has switched to two shifts, which equates to approximately 360 vehicles per day. Good for a 54% increase in productivity from January to June. From 25,219 units in the same period last year to 38,830 units this year. In 2021, a total of 500 electric cars were built 53,819. This year it is expected to break the limit of 70,000 units, provided there are no problems in delivery of course. The 500th assembly line has been closed for only 7 days since the semiconductor crisis began, which is much smaller than other Italian and French Stellantis plants. The current success is the cherry on the birthday cake of the Fiat 500.
