Who Makes FIAT?

FIAT Parked by Mountains

Wondering who manufactures FIAT cars? Let’s go back a little further to what FIAT stands for: “Fabbrica Italian Automobili Torino,” which roughly translates to “Italian Automobiles Factory, Turin.” Turin, Italy, where the original FIAT factory was located, still plays an important role as the site of the FIAT museum showcasing its storied history of 120 years. 

Nowadays, FIAT heads the FIAT Chrysler Automobiles original equipment manufacturer group, a group that manages the production of Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, and RAM vehicles, along with Alfa Romeo.

The Early History of FIAT

When Giovanni Agnelli founded FIAT in 1899, the Italian motorcar industry had barely germinated. Their first model, the FIAT 4 HP, or the 3 ½ CV, helped to set the stage for the country’s unique automotive history and style. By 1910, FIAT was the largest manufacturer in Italy.

Fast forward from that first small factory in Turin to 22 years later, when FIAT opened another, larger Lingotto factory that became the FIAT hub for years to come. In subsequent years, FIAT would come to dominate the Italian automotive manufacturing sector. Additional plants would open in Cassino, Lecce, Termoli, Vasto, Termini Imerese, Brindisi, and Sulmona.
