The new Fiat 500e - Production line at Mirafiori PlantAutomoto TV
To follow the debut of the New 500 to the Italian press, the Group is opening the doors of its historic Mirafiori plant in Turin, where every day the women and men of FCA create this gem of technology, now ready to revolutionize tomorrow’s world of mobility with its unmistakable style made up of Italian culture, the spirit of La Dolce Vita, technology and innovation. Its ‘cradle’ could be none other than the Turin plant, part of the largest FCA complex in the world, employing around 20,000 people in production and the related fields of engineering and design, sales, financial services and spare parts. In its 81 years, the Mirafiori facility has made history in the Italian and global automotive industry. Now, in a symbolic bridge between past and future, the production line for the New 500 electric has been set up here, to continue the long history of innovative models leaving the Turin plant, just like its forerunner, which exited Mirafiori for the first time in 1957. Around 1,200 people will work solely on manufacturing the 500 electric, while production at full capacity will be 80,000 units per year, which could increase as necessary. In total, between the costs of design, development and engineering and the construction of the production line, it represents an investment of over €700 million. Even better, the New 500 BEV was created, designed and engineered right here in Turin: a product truly “Made at Fiat” and “Made in Turin”.
