The history of Fiat
The first Fiat manufacturing plant opened in Turin in 1900, with just 35 staff. In their first year they made just 24 cars. Three years later they had more than quadrupled production, making 135 cars and by 1906 they were manufacturing over 1000 cars a year.
By 1910 the company was the largest car manufacturer in Italy and owning a Fiat was considered a sign of worth.
In 1923 Fiat opened the Lingotto car factory. At the time it was the largest building of its type in Europe. It was the first Fiat factory to use the assembly line.
Like many other car companies across Europe, during the war they manufactured military machines and vehicles.
In 2014 Fiat merged with Chrysler to become Fiat Chrysler Automobiles.
Fiat is best known for the manufacture of superminis and city cars, such as the Punto, Panda and 500.
