Fiat is an Italian automobile manufacturer along with being an engine manufacturer, and a financial and industrial group.
Fiat was founded on July 11, 1899 by a group of investors; one in particular was Giovanni Agnelli. By 1902, Agnelli was the managing director of the company.
The first factory was opened in 1900 in Corso Dante. At that time, they employed 150 workers and produced 24 cars. One of the cars manufactured that year was the 3/12 HP without a reverse gear.
The first time fiat fans saw the fiat logo, which was oval on a blue background was in 1904 and designed by Biscaretti.
During the first Car Tour of Italy there were nine Fiat cars seen cross the finish line, however, the first real competition won the Sassi-Superga uphill race in 1902.The car was driven by Vincenzo Lancia.
In 1916, a new factory was beginning under the leader of Giacomo Matte Trucco. This factory was the largest in Europe and occupied five floors. It was not completed until 1922.
Like other European car manufactures during the war, production was limited to supplying the army. Like others in the industry after the war, getting back into production was tough. However, by as early as 1923, Fiat was back on track. Fiat gave us the 509, which was the first car with four seats during this time period.
In 1934 and 1936, two cars came off the assembly line that was sure to be big hits of the general public. These were the Balilla and the Topolino. The Balilla was known for its low fuel consumption while the Topolino was the smallest utilitarian car in the world. The Topolino was manufactured until 1955.
Another set back with another war, World War II, brought production down quite a bit. After the war in 1948, reconstruction of the plants was at the top of the list since many were destroyed by bombs. Profits did begin to show in 1948 and the number of employees began to increase.
Today, Fiat is the largest automobile manufacturer in Italy, with a range of cars including the Fiat Panda, Punto, Stilo, Idea, Croma, Ulysse, and Doblò.
