The Dodge Dart has finally entered official production. After it was delayed past January, insiders told Allpar that the target date was near the end of April (before some outlets ran stories about how April 1 was the target date, which as far as we know was never the case.) The first true production cars appeared to have rolled off the line today, May 7.

The first vehicle off the line was a red Dodge Dart Rallye with a black and red interior, powered by a 1.4-liter engine with manual transmission. Optional features included a rear camera and sunroof.
