For well over a century, Fiat cars have been synonymous with La Dolce Vita and the cool cappuccino urban landscapes of Turin, Naples and Milan, producing cars that are practical but playful and sporty yet refined. Today, outstanding cars like the Punto, Panda, Brava and the iconic 500, symbolise the enduring appeal of Fiat cars, with their rich heritage and distinctly Italian identity.
From humble beginnings, the Fabbrica Italiana di Automobili Torino went on to dominate Italian car sales and eventually challenge the world’s biggest brands as a global player. Founded by entrepreneur, Giovanni Agnelli in 1899, the Italian car giant began modestly from a small Turin factory, manufacturing the new ‘horseless carriage’ for those who could afford it. After a measure of success, the company changed its name to Fiat in 1906 and began to expand its operation.
From the start, Fiat was renowned for outstanding design and innovative engineering, which continue to be the trademarks today. By 1910, the company was the largest car manufacturer in Italy, soon proliferating into military vehicles and guns, to assist in the war effort. The manufacture of tanks and Fighter planes continued during World War Two.
Following the completion of a new car plant in 1923, the largest in Europe, Fiat dominated Italian car sales during the roaring 20s, with an 87% market share. In the 1950s, the introduction of the popular and cheap 500 secured the company’s future. However, the Agnelli family’s interest was withdrawn until 1966, when Gianni, grandson of Giovanni, returned to lead Fiat into a new golden age. This saw Fiat produce more iconic models on their way to becoming a world power in car manufacturing. Large-scale restructuring in this period, as well as a number of high profile acquisitions, including Maserati and Alitalia, further consolidated Fiat’s global presence. Influential stakes in Ferrari and Lancia were also acquired.
Increasing competition and fluctuating oil prices presented a challenging market to Fiat during the 80s and 90s. However, with the launch of the Punto, Bravo and Brava, Fiat was once again flying high and producing its trademark fashionable and well-crafted motor cars, making significant inroads back into the North American market.
In 2011, Fiat completed the acquisition of Chrysler and this powerful dual brand is now set to compete at the highest level for decades to come. Building on their reputation for creative engineering, Fiat are now committed to a new generation of smartly designed and economical cars, exciting to drive, but boasting a low environmental impact and reduced running costs.
