12-millionth car produced in the FCA factory in Tychy
On 18 November 2019 FCA Poland celebrated the production of the 12-millionth jubilee car, a red Fiat 500.
Three days before, the 500-thousand white Lancia Ypsilon LPG version left the production line of the Tychy plant. After that in 2018, the 2-millionth Fiat 500 left the production line.
Within 27 years (1992 - 2019), the FCA Group invested more than 2.5 billion € to modernize plant infrastructure, create a new welding plant equipped with robotic production lines, a new waterborne paint shop, and a new car assembly hall.
In 1991 the production of Fiat Cinquecento began in Tychy, and in 1997 the Fiat Seicento. In the meantime - in 1992 - an agreement was concluded with the Italian Fiat, which resulted in the establishment of Fiat Auto Poland.
Under a new name the plant produced and assembled such models as: Cinquecento, Uno, Punto, Bravo, Brava, Marea, Ducato, Iveco, Seicento, Siena, Palio Weekend, Panda, Fiat and Abarth 500, and beginning 2011 - Lancia Ypsilon.
