|Fiat 500 hatch|
A redesign is planned for 2015, possibly concentrating global production in Poland. Currently, 500s for North America, South America and China are assembled in Toluca, Mexico, while the European version is built in Poland.|
Fiat is designing the next Fiat 500 in Turin, Italy. While the design theme will be an evolution of the iconic minicar launched in 1957, the size of the new generation is debated. In the United States, a slightly longer and wider 500 hatch is preferred. But a bigger 500 would lose its traditional positioning in Europe. The 500 is Europe’s No. 2 selling minicar behind the Fiat Panda.
