Magna says it has sold 275,000 soft-top convertible roofs produced for the Fiat 500C at its roof system facility in Tychy, Poland.
“We are proud to contribute a system which helps enhance the driving experience of the Fiat 500C,” said Magna Closures and Magna Mirrors president, John O’Hara.
“Reaching a milestone such as this one reflects our team’s commitment and the overall partnership we have with Fiat.”
The 500c features a dual-layer multi-position power-retractable cloth top which can be operated at vehicle speeds of up to 50 mph.
The folding, soft-top system has a lightweight multi-material frame made of steel, stainless steel, aluminium and glass fibre-reinforced polyamide.
Over the frame Magna secures a fabric and a rear window made of toughened glass. Magna also developed the robot used to mount the roof system onto the vehicle.The
The global supplier has been supplying Fiat with the folding roof system since 2009.
