FIAT: Four million cars manufactured at Termini Imerese
Filed under: News
The Fiat Auto plant in Termini Imerese, Sicily hit the goal of four million cars manufactured.
The Sicilian factory set this new record with a Lancia Ypsilon MomoDesign in the red and black color combination.
A party was held today with all employees to celebrate the event, during which the car was delivered to its owner, Mr. Fabrizio Quartararo from Palermo.
It was April 1970 when the Termini Imerese plant started to manufacture the Fiat Cinquecento. In the following years many other successful models rolled off its assembly lines: the 126, the Panda -- over two million units in almost fourteen years -- and starting from 1993, the two generations of Fiat Punto.
Since 2005 Termini Imerese has been the only Fiat Auto plant to manufacture the Lancia Ypsilon.
The plant has an area of over 400,000 square meters, 160,000 of which are covered, and employs approximately 1,400 people.
