The 500,000th Fiat 500L has rolled off the production line at the plant in Kragujevac, Serbia. The landmark car is a 500L Cross 1.6 MultiJet 120hp in Sicilia Orange, with glossy black roof.

Launched in 2012, the 500L has been firmly at the top of its segment in Europe for the last five years and market leader in both Italy and Spain. The model was refreshed in 2017, helping it to grab a segment share of 22 percent in Europe, and over 52 percent in Italy.  Sales for the first month of 2018 appear equally positive, in Europe, they were up 5 percent year-on-year, while in Italy the market share was more than 50 percent in its segment.

The Fiat 500L is spacious, packed with the latest technology and full of personality.  It is the ideal car for modern family life as it combines the iconic 500 style and practical Fiat design touches. The current range includes three versions, 500L Lounge which is perfect for city living, the Cross with its crossover looks fitted with Traction Plus system for light off road conditions and the Wagon, which is available with seven seats.

The 500L is produced in one of the most advanced FCA plants in the world, Kragujevac in Serbia.   Following three years of intensive work and a billion Euro investment to upgrade the infrastructure, renovate the buildings, create new production departments and  install state-of-the-art machinery and manufacturing systems, the renovated  plant was reopened back in April 2012.

The Fiat 500L range is available to order now priced from €20,495.  For more information on the Fiat 500L please visit www.fiat.ie or to locate your nearest Fiat dealer visit www.fiat.ie/dealerlocator.
