The millionth Cinquecento and the first 500e

Just five years after its rebirth in 2007, the millionth Fiat 500 has rolled off the line at the Fiat Auto Poland plant in Tichy.

Fiat 500 no. 1,000,000 is a Pearl White Lounge model that will soon be on its way to its new owner. Where that new owner might be is a matter of conjecture as the little Italian car is sold in more than 100 countries around the world. It can be safely said it won’t be coming to North America as all Fiat 500s for sale in the U.S. and Canada are built in Toluca, Mexico.

Fiat is also showing the first photos if the Fiat 500e electric car. It will take its first bows on the “green carpet” at the American Music Awards and then it will go on public display at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

The 500e, which is a pure electric that runs on lithium-ion batteries, is rumored to have a 100-mile range, though official figures and specs are still incomplete.

For now, it’s a California-only vehicle, designed to satisfy the Bear State’s requirement that all automakers over a certain size offer a zero-emissions vehicle for sale in California. It will go on sale in early 2013 at a yet-to-be-announced price. Fiat/Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne has said the company will lose about $10,000 on each car.
