Record-breaking Fiat 500X: the 500 thousandth unit is produced
Fiat 500X number 500,000 was built at the Melfi plant in southern Italy today. The new milestone is even more proof of the success of this model, which has led its segment and been permanently in the European top ten ever since its launch in 2014.
The record-breaking 500X belongs to the “120th” special series which was launched at the last Geneva International Motor Show to celebrate the Fiat brand’s 120th anniversary and it features a two-colour livery, available on the 500X for the first time.
The Fiat 500X production record was set at the FCA plant at Melfi, one of the world’s most innovative automotive factories, which currently builds the Fiat 500X models destined for export to more than 100 countries worldwide. In its 25 years in operation, the FCA Melfi Plant has focused on creating high quality products through optimal production process efficiency, and above all through the motivation and training of highly skilled workers at its Academy, the real jewel in its crown.
The Fiat 500X “120th” is available with the 1.0-litre FireFly Turbo petrol engine with 120hp. With an Urban look, the 500X “120th” adds full LED headlights, exclusive 16-inch black alloy wheels, black side mouldings, body coloured door mirrors, black with bi-colour paint and the 120th logo to the outside. Inside the car features a unique copper coloured upholstery, while rain and dusk sensors, rear parking sensors and a unique key cover complete the already comprehensive standard equipment list. For the very first time, the Italian crossover will be available with a two-colour livery. Three combinations of the bi-colour Tuxedo paint with black roof are available – Ice White, Ivory and Argento Grey – along with Cinema Black, Ice White, Argento Grey and Ivory tri-coat non bi-colour variants.
