The seen prototype of the Italian novelty looks very familiar, but still this is a completely different version of the subcompact urban kid, which is now based on the new platform.

The roadmap of the Italian Fiat brand for 2018-2022 includes the launch of a completely new generation of hatchback 500, which is expected to be officially unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2020. It is known that buyers of a completely new generation of the cult model will be able to choose a fully electric version of the car, and now we have the first “spy” photos of a city car with zero emissions.

Although the novelty is likely to be almost identical in size and general form to the current version of the Fiat 500, it will be built on a new platform designed for future electrified models of the brand. Detailed information about the power plant of the future 500e is currently unavailable, but we expect power to be 111 horsepower (200 Nm) and a range of 135 kilometers.

 Earlier it was reported that the Fiat 500 will be positioned as the new 2021 model year. The electric 500e should go into mass production in the second half of 2020 at the Fiat Mirafiori factory.

 On the market will also be available and versions of a new generation of Italian urban kid, which are equipped with traditional internal combustion engines.

 The new architecture, on the basis of which the next-generation Fiat 500 will be built, will also be the basis for other small cars of the brand, such as the new generation Panda, which was presented in the form of the Centoventi concept in March this year. The automaker is investing more than $ 5.4 billion in the creation of its future electric lineup.
