The third generation Fiat 500 doesn’t look all too different from the current car, but it’s bigger, has a new platform, and is EV only.
The second generation 500 with its gas engines will remain in production alongside the new model for at least two years, with the new electric only 500 being sold as a more premium option.
So far only the convertible version has been unveiled, although a closed roof 2 door hatch will be coming later.
The new 500 evolves the current car’s styling, and has a much more sophisticated interior including a 10.25″ touchscreen and FCA’s latest Uconnect 5 infotainment system. There’s also Level 2 autonomous driving for hands free single lane highway driving.
Fiat has yet to confirm the electric motor’s specs, but the new 500 can do 0-100km/h in 9s, and has a top speed of 150km/h (93mph).
The 500’s 42kWH battery comes with 85kW fast charger, and has a WLTP range of 320km (199mi) WLTP range.
For the launch (and who knows when that’ll be due to the coronavirus), there will be a limited edition La Prima convertible model that’s got a monogramed soft top, 17″ diamond cut wheels, eco-leather, and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
It will only be available with three paint options: mineral gray, ocean green and celestial blue.
