The Colombia line was a successful line with years of service.
There are 7 A500's 2 years after (initial limited) certification and it seems the aircraft is overweight and still has a few engineering issues to work out (240ish pounds of unusable fuel is an example). Still looks like a good basic design and Cessna could well work out the rough edges.
