In The Spotlight

Is FIAT an American Company? FAQs For All

The history of this premium car brand is not only interesting, but it’s also a story that began in the late 1800s. The first plant opened in the year 1900 and produced an average of 24 cars per year. By the 1930s, the company began gaining popularity in France, Spain, the USSR, and Poland.

Decades of success followed. It wasn’t, though, until mid-2009, that the FIAT Group joined forces with the Chrysler Group, ultimately forming a global strategic alliance. By 2014, the alliance was solid and a merger resulted in FIAT Chrysler Automobiles, now known as an Italian-American company, ultimately expanding its car brands across the United States and globally.
