Fiat is celebrating today after a sub-compact 500 with the chassis number 1,500,000 rolled off the assembly line in the Italian automaker’s Poland factory.
The special 500, which is a white model in the Pop trim line is destined to a new owner in France. The car has a 1.2-liter engine with 69 horsepower.
Production of the 2016 Fiat 500 for the European market has already begun at the Poland plant, and although it looks mostly the same from the outside, the interior gets a big upgrade. The mid-cycle refresh brings a much-needed five-inch touchscreen and new infotainment system powered by Chrysler’s user-friendly UConnect.
American specs for the new 2016 Fiat 500 have not been released yet.
