Who Makes FIAT?

 

Ever wondered who manufactures FIAT cars? To start off, let’s discuss what FIAT stands for: “Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino.” The direct translation is “Italian Automobiles Factory, Turin,” aptly named after the original FIAT factory location of Turin, Italy. FIAT was founded as a company at that very factory 120 years ago. These days, FIAT is at the head of the FIAT Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) original equipment manufacturer group, which also happens to hold Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and RAM in its lineup, as well as Alfa Romeo. Explore more about the history of FIAT and find out who makes the FIAT 500, below.

History of the Turin FIAT Factory

FIAT was founded in 1899 by Giovanni Agnelli, who quickly rose to fame as the brains of the company. Come 1900, Agnelli opened the very first FIAT factory in Turin, Italy, proceeding to turn out 24 vehicles that year. Among them was the first FIAT model, called the 3 ½ CV. 22 years later, FIAT opened another, much larger factory in Turnin that became known as the Lingotto factory. It wasn’t long before this factory became the FIAT hub – it even boasted an indoor test track! Then, World War II began, and the factory was put to use as a production station for Allied Forces’ supplies.

After some time had passed, FIAT went on to expand its Italian-based manufacturing in Cassino, Lecce, Termoli, Vasto, Termini Imerese, Brindisi, and Sulmona.

So, if you’re wondering who makes the FIAT 500 or the 124 Spider, the answer is a myriad of talented folks across the world! However, if you’re driving a FIAT vehicle in Tulsa or Broken Arrow, it’s more than likely that your model was manufactured by FIAT Chrysler Automobiles here in the U.S.
