Fiat set a road map for a large electrical transition

Fiat plans to go all-over, transition the range of car makers from 2025 when shifting from internal combustion. The announcement followed the Fiat’s decision to only make the electrical version of the new 500, the iconic car.

It was announced last March, the latest Fiat 500 was a sudden turnaround from 500E before. Then, the electric version of the car rarely popular among those responsible for fini Fiat: Then-CEO Sergio Marchionne said that he hoped EV would not be bought, because the price was $ 14K every time.

However, this time, the number seems to be on a firmer land. 500 new – which is not available in North America – has a range of up to 199 miles in the WLTP cycle, 85kW Fast DC charging support, and the price of stickers from £ 29k ($ 40,000) before each incentive. There is no gasoline or diesel version.

“It is our duty to bring it to the electric car market whose price is no more than those who have an internal combustion engine, as soon as possible, in line with the fall of battery costs,” Olivier François, CEO of Fiat and Steellantis CMO, said today. “We explore the sustainable mobility area for all: this is our biggest project. Between 2025 and 2030, our product line-up will gradually become only electricity. This will be a radical change for Fiat.”

Of course, new electricity 500 is a much more interesting prospect as EV than the old 500E ever. The stopped model – interesting from American line-up in 2019 – boasts only around 87 miles at full cost, for example.

Car, although only half of the battle. FCA said back in January that it would be updated a factory in Poland, for example, where it would focus on the electric model in Jeep, Fiat, and Alfa Romeo brands. It will help fulfill the jeep ambition to expand the hybrid plug-in model like a new 4xe wrangler; Alfa Romeo, meanwhile, worked on the All-Electric SUV which said it hoped to reveal in 2022.

Now part of Stelllantis, a combined FCA and Peugeot Groupe, Fiat is not the only company looking for this decade electric makeover. Jaguar announced earlier this year will also run all-event from 2025. GM and Ford, meanwhile, it will take a little longer to get to that stage, but has set ambitious carbon neutral targets, among others.
