Right down to only a single mannequin within the U.S., the Fiat Model is displaying indicators of life. Revealed at this time on the Los Angeles Auto Present, the 500e, an electrified model of Fiat’s 2-door subcompact hatchback, will return to the U.S. in early 2024.
Gasoline and electrical variations of the five hundred had been supplied within the States between 2012 and 2019, although the electrical 500e was supplied solely in California and Oregon. The up to date 500e can be supplied extra broadly, although will not be offered in each state.
Although specs for the brand new 500e will not be but obtainable. Fiat did current three designer ideas fashions on the L.A. present: the 500e Giorgio Armani, Kartell, and Bvlgari. All three have been uniquely trimmed, and Fiat says the vehicles painting the five hundred’s “three souls: sustainable design, sustainable vogue, and sustainable luxurious.”
The U.S.-market 500e was rated at simply 84 miles of vary. Presently on sale in Europe, the 2022 500e, with the highest-capacity obtainable battery, is rated at 199 miles on the Euro WLTP take a look at cycle, which interprets to about 175 miles as rated by the EPA. We count on the 2025 500e to supply related efficiency.
Seems Fiat isn’t useless within the U.S., no less than not but. As mother or father firm Stellantis ramps as much as launch its first electrical car within the American market, the Ram EV pickup, the corporate is ensuring that it has further electrical product obtainable to satisfy rising EV demand.
This isn’t in contrast to what Normal Motors is doing with the Chevrolet Bolt EV. On sale now, the Bolt EV is a placeholder for the likes of the Equinox EV and Blazer EV, that are because of arrive quickly.
The massive query is, with simply 360 sellers left within the U.S., is the Fiat model the most effective conduit to electrification for Stellantis? Or, will we see the 500e present up at different Stellantis shops as effectively?
