On September 7th, the Stellantis plant in Tychy, Poland, marked a significant milestone with the commencement of regular production of the highly anticipated Fiat 600e. Following its official presentation at Lingotto on July 4th, this groundbreaking electric vehicle promises to revolutionize sustainable urban mobility and signifies Fiat’s return to the B-segment market. The first Fiat 600e off the assembly line, a top-of-the-range La Prima version, dazzled in the vibrant “Sun of Italy” orange hue, encapsulating the spirit of Italian style and innovation.
Since its establishment in 1975, the Tychy plant has been a cornerstone of the FIAT brand. Today, it employs over 2,000 dedicated individuals, operating around the clock in a three-shift system. The plant’s illustrious history includes the production of award-winning models like the Jeep® Avenger in 2023, Fiat 500 in 2008, and Fiat Panda in 2004. Through the Stellantis Production Way system, the Tychy facility excels in quality, energy efficiency, and employee engagement. Remarkably, from its inception to December 2022, the Tychy plant has manufactured an impressive 10.8 million cars.
The Fiat 600e stands as a testament to Fiat’s commitment to sustainable urban mobility.
