New electric Fiat 500 caught without camouflageFebruary 22, 2020
The network has a fresh image of a completely unguarded Fiat 500 of the next generation, which demonstrates how the Italian automaker plans to create one of its best-selling books.
A shot of the back of the all-new Fiat 500, which was posted on an Instagram user page called Cochespias, is especially indicative of an inexperienced look: the small supermini looks like an updated version of the current car. This is surprising given Fiat’s radical plans to upgrade to the next-generation Fiat 500 all-electric to create a smaller, cheaper alternative to the Honda e and the upcoming Mini Electric.
Since the manufacturer is committed to creating a zero-emission supermini, the next Fiat 500 will have no internal combustion engines at all, and the small hatchback will move to a completely new special EV platform.
A closer look at the new car reveals some very subtle changes compared to its predecessor, including moving the door mirror to the corner of the front pillar, a couple of larger D-shaped rear lights and a completely redesigned trunk lid.
New door handles and flowing lines indicate that Fiat designers are creating the next 500 under the mantra “keep it simple”, confirming the accuracy of exclusive visualizations. Recent spy shots also confirm that the 500 spotlights produced under the 500 trademark will remain, but perhaps the biggest changes will happen inside.
“Premium is the way we will go with the EV 500. The new 500, completely updated. All electric. This is a kind of urban Tesla, with a beautiful design. Italian, Dolce Vita in an electric car. It’s the polar opposite of Centoventi, ”said FCA Marketing Director Oliver Francois.
Fiat recently confirmed that the new 500 will be built at the Mirafiori factory in Turin. Fiat has already pledged £ 700 million to re-equip the plant – the investment the company expects will easily pay off with a projected production capacity of 80,000 units per year and the possibility of further expansion if customer demand exceeds expectations.
