Fiat 500

Fiat is our mass-market brand primarily focused on small and compact cars with a distinctive Italian style.



Founded in Turin in 1899, Fiat has a more than 120-year-long tradition in the design of small and medium-sized city cars, which are ambassadors of "Made in Italy" and expressions of innovative technological solutions accessible to all.

In 2019, Fiat celebrated its 120th anniversary, a milestone that very few car manufacturers can claim, with the world premiere of the Fiat Concept Centoventi at the Geneva International Motor Show. This revolutionary concept car represents the brand’s vision of democratic electric urban mobility – further proof that the brand will continue to be a pioneer in offering affordable solutions for the mobility needs of the future.

Today our mission is to re-think the traditional approach to urban mobility, responding to the need for "freedom of movement" in the city centers of tomorrow. And, naturally, our starting point will be the icon of the brand: the Fiat 500.

Launched in 1957, the Fiat 500 was the car that revolutionized the concept of mobility and “motorized” Europe. With over 6 million units sold in more than 100 countries, the Fiat 500 has become an icon of style, design and “Made in Italy” around the world. And today, the 500 is preparing for another revolution that will make Fiat the greenest FCA brand.

The new Fiat 500, set to be revealed at the 2020 Geneva International Motor Show, will lead the way for the brand’s electric mobility strategy – full electric and 100% “Made in Italy” – bringing the car back to its hometown of Turin with production at the Mirafiori plant.

Fiat will continue to leverage on its vocations as urban and family mover, two central pillars of the brand’s DNA that will lead it to being even more global, sustainable and relevant to the urban mobility of tomorrow.

The brand’s core markets are Europe and Latin America and, among its many titles, Fiat is market leader in the Brazilian pick-up segment, a position now held for 18 years. It is also the undisputed leader in the European A segment with the 500 and Panda accounting for a combined share of nearly 28 percent.
