Serial production of Fiat 500L at the FCA Serbia plant has been paused until February 5, following which preparations for the production of electric vehicles will start, the Vecernje Novosti daily writes in today’s issue.
During the summer vacation, the factory will commence preparations for the production of a whole new model.
The president of the factory’s autonomous trade union, Zoran Markovic, says that the workers are waiting for someone to tell them when the production of the new model will start.

Elsewhere, in other Fiat factories, the production of the hybrid 500L began in early September 2018. The first analyses show that this model has been well received in Spain in France, but that it hasn’t had any considerable impact on the production.
The Kragujevac plant officials got a signal from their Turin colleagues in early 2018 that the serial production of this model, which will involve participation of the Serbian state and will revive production in the Kragujevac plant, requiring work in three shifts, would start in late 2019.
