Fiat Panda reaches two million units
The second generation Fiat Panda has reached a significant milestone as the 2,000,000th model was produced at the Italian manufacturer’s plant in Tychy, Poland.
The specification rolled out at the factory was a Panda Cross version with a 1.3 litre MultiJet engine delivering 75bhp.
First launched back in 2003, almost half of the Fiat Pandas manufactured have been sold abroad highlighting the hatchback’s global success. Demonstrating its impact in the motoring industry further, is that it won the prestigious Car of the Year title in 2004.
The current Fiat Panda range features a choice of Euro 5 emission approved petrol and diesel engines, along with the option of alternate methane and LPG units and the choice of either front or four wheel drive.
Ultimately customers pick from eight versions of the Panda, called Actual, Active, MyLife, Dynamic, Mamy, Emotion, Climbing and Cross.
Each model has an Electronic Stability Program (ESP) plus Electronic Locking Differential when equipped with four wheel drive.
Pricing for the Panda range currently starts from £7,960 On-The-Road for the 1.1 Active Eco model. The most expensive range-topping specification, the 1.3 MultiJet dynamic (Euro 5), presently has an On-The-Road price of £12,285.
The Multijet dynamic model can reach a top speed of 103mph and deliver a combined fuel consumption of 67.3mpg, all the while emitting just 109g/km of CO2.
