Mike Manley, CEO of FCA, confirms that the electric Fiat 500 will arrive in 2020 and that it will be produced at FCA.
2020 will be the breakthrough year for FCA. For that date, in fact, the launch of the electric Fiat 500 is officially scheduled. The small Italian electric car will be produced inside the plant but it will not be the only electric vehicle of the Italian automotive group. At the same time, in fact, the debut of the Jeep Renegade as a plug-in version is expected. These important timelines that mark the electric breakthrough of FCA have been shared directly by Mike Manley, CEO of FCA.
This is very important information that highlights how FCA is finally deciding to invest with conviction in electric mobility. A conversion perhaps a bit ‘late as in 2020 will arrive on the market many interesting models both electric and plug-in. A taste of the FCA group’s electric future will probably come during the upcoming Geneva Motor Show. The automotive group, however, has decided to allocate a good 9 billion euros by 2022 in the electrification of its range of cars and then in the coming years will come other models certainly very interesting.
There is obviously a lot of curiosity about how the electric Fiat 500 will be structured that will be produced in Italy. Surely it will be very different from that now produced and sold in America and built on the Bosch platform. A car that America likes for its versatility and that many hoped it could be imported in Europe.
This electric breakthrough could have important consequences also for the whole ecosystem of electric cars in Italy. In fact, many hesitations towards this kind of mobility could fall with the Italians who could start to see more positively the transition to electric cars. Furthermore, FCA drive towards electric mobility could incentives dealerships to install more balusters throughout Europe.
