Who makes Fiat

Cars under the Fiat brand are manufactured by the Italian-controlled multinational corporation Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. The corporation formed in 2014 is headquartered in London and is incorporated in the Netherlands. In addition to the Fiat brand, FCA owns over 10 car makes, including Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, and Jeep.

The two most important FCA’s subsidiaries include FCA Italy (it was known as Fiat Group Automobiles before 2014) and FCA US. FCA Italy, which is based in Turin, has a long history dating back to 1899.

The oldest of FCA manufacturing plants now working is the Giambattista Vico situated in Pomigliano d’Arco, Naples, Italy. It has been working since 1968. One more rather old plant is located in Betim, Brazil (1973). The Tychy factory opened in 1992, while the FIAL (joint venture) in Ranjangaon (Pune) started to make Fiat cars in 1997. Some of the newer production sites include FAS in Kragujevac, Serbia (2008), GAC Fiat in Changsha (2010), and the one in Goiana, Brazil (2015).
