First All-Electric Fiat 500e Rolls off Assembly Line

First All-Electric Fiat 500e Rolls off Assembly Line

The “feature-packed” battery-electric vehicle is headed for the United States.

The first all-electric Fiat 500e vehicles destined for the United States rolled off the line earlier this month at the Mirafiori Assembly Plant in Turin, Italy.

The “feature-packed,” two-door battery-electric vehicle sold out its first dealer allocation in less than a week, according to Stellantis.

“An all-new, all-electric take on the FIAT brand’s most storied and iconic model, the Fiat 500e will arrive on this side of the Atlantic by the end of the first quarter as the first North American BEV offering from Stellantis,” the automaker declared in a news release.  

Stellantis claims the Fiat 500e is the lightest passenger BEV in the market.

The Fiat 500e delivers an estimated range of 149 miles, enabled by a 42 kilowatt-hour (kWh) battery with a Level 2 (11-kW) charge time of four hours and 15 minutes (30 amp).

“We’re thrilled that the Fiat 500e has officially begun its journey to reach customers in North America,” said Olivier Francois, CEO of FIAT and CMO global of Stellantis. “The 500e registered more than 185,000 units worldwide since its launch and is playing a relevant role in the green transition of cities across the globe, continuing the brand’s electrification journey.” 

FIAT is beginning the introduction of the Fiat 500e to North America with one “effortlessly chic model,” the (RED) Edition.

“FIAT has partnered with (RED) to introduce the coolest, most ethical car in urban mobility, with features including red-painted exterior mirrors, LED headlamps and front grille details, sitting on 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels,” the automaker explained. “Inside, a striking red dashboard is the focal point.”

Available exterior colors are Tuxedo Black, Glacier White and Red by (RED). Every time a (RED) product is purchased, it triggers a donation to the Global Fund to support life-saving prevention and treatment programs in communities most in need, according to Stellantis.   
 
The manufacturer’s suggested retail price for the 2024 Fiat 500e is $32,500, not including $1,595 destination, and it is positioned to take advantage of government tax rebates in participating states, the automaker noted.  

Every Fiat 500e includes a Level 2 charging wall unit or public charging credits through Free2move Charge to ease the transition to electrification.
