This is why Fiat 500s are EVERYWHERE: 1.5m sold since 2007

Fiat has sold its 1.5 millionth 500 in Europe – with the UK accounting for more than 240,000 of those sales.

The Fiat 500, relaunched in 2007, still has some way to go to catch up with the classic model. Nearly four million of the original Fiat 500s were sold between 1957 and 1975.

The manufacturer points out, however, that the new model is selling at a much faster rate than the 1957 Fiat 500 – with 1.5m being sold in the eight years and four months it has been on sale.

A revised Fiat 500 was launched earlier this year – with 1,800 new components, despite looking very similar to the outgoing model.

The landmark 1.5 millionth 500 to be produced is a white 1.2-litre Pop, destined for a new owner in France.
