- Fiat Panda production has just passed the manufacturing milestone of 500,000 units.
Panda is built in Fiat Auto’s Polish plant at Tychy, and although destined primarily for European markets, it is also sold in countries like Malaysia, Taiwan and Martinique, and there are almost 2000 Pandas on Japanese roads.
Panda is currently the second best selling car in Italy, behind the Fiat Punto, and it dominates the city car market (A-segment) in Europe.
Panda’s on-going commercial success has been repeatedly underwritten by the number of prizes awarded to it by the international automotive media - 18 to date - including the prestigious Car of the Year 2004 title.
Over 16,000 Pandas have been sold in the UK since the car’s launch in 2004, and the range now includes turbodiesel and 4x4 versions.Published 11 October 2005
