Maserati’s Giovanni Agnelli plant has produced its 100,00th vehicle since 2013 – a white 2017 Quattroporte GranSport destined for China.
The automaker celebrated the production milestone at the plant last week, with Alfredo Altavilla, Fiat Chrysler’s EMEA regional boss, thanking the men and women at the historic Agnelli plant.
“The Maserati revival of recent years has been one of the great innovations of the premium world; the sixth generation of the flagship of the Trident, born here in Grugliasco, the Quattroporte is the best-selling of all time, the Ghibli produced here is approaching 70,000 units outputs from the production line and this means that in little more than three years has become the Maserati most successful of all time, ” Altavilla said.
The Turin-based Agnelli plant is responsible for producing the QuattroPorte and Ghibli sedans. It was purchased by the Fiat group in 2009 and has since received over 1 billion euro in investment for various upgrades and revisions. More than 950 workers are employed at the plant, helping to churn out around 130 cars per day between two shifts.
