New FIAT 500 body styles

New FIAT 500 3+1

 

The all-electric new FIAT 500 is also available in three body styles. There is a hatchback, a cabrio and a 3+1 body.

As the name suggests the 3+1 version has one extra door on the passenger side. These doors on the passenger side remind us the doors of the BMW i3, since they open and close in the same way. You have to open the front door first to then be able to open the back door, not very convenient…

 

I have no idea if the new FIAT 500 will be a successful electric car. It definitely has the cute factor, but I don’t know if it will be enough. With more doors, the cheaper, but also cute Renault Twingo ZE seems much more practical.

FIAT says that the annual production capacity will be 80.000 units, but it can be increased.

What do you think?

My interest in electric transportation is mostly political. Iā€™m tired of coups and wars for oil. My expectation is that the adoption of electric transportation will be a factor for peace and democracy all over the world.

Is this coming to America like Eddie Murphy?

“Fiat hasn’t published pricing yet, but it’s of little interest to us because the 3+1 will not be sold in the United States due in part to its small size.”

it’s cheaper for probably save 10 000ā‚¬ CO2 credits x Tesla price for them than buy ZEV credits from Tesla in USA

Hi Pedro, I am not a customer of this stylish-like car category but I must give a big thumb-up to Fiat for the electric parameters. Finally a car with 200 miles / 320 km WLTP range, decent motor power and fast charging capatibility and you forgot to mention a 11 kW three-phase OBC. The most positive thing from the longer perspective is that there is no step back in electric parameters for future models and competitors.

I am still very curious how succesful will be Dacia Spring, If so, It will be definitelly one of the most profitable vehicles in Dacia production line. I expected that its electric drivetrain and battery will be redesigned for EU and also it will be produced in EU, but none of those assumptions was confirmed.So it got “EU subsidy price” but with chinese market parameters.

I didn’t understand if that 11 kW on-board charger FIAT mentions is standard or optional.

I think that ultimately what makes electric cars successful or not is their availability. I don’t know if Dacia will produce enough electric cars to keep waiting times low. The Renault Twingo ZE will probably be produced at higher volume.

Pedro,
Who makes the Fiat 500 cells? How does pack energy density compare with Zoe 50? Thanks!

I’m not completely sure, but I think they are 120 Ah (NCM 622) cells from Samsung SDI, just like we have in the BMW i3.

96s1p: 96 x 120 Ah x 3,65 V = 42 kWh

The old FIAT 500e sold in the USA had 63 Ah prismatic cells from Samsung SDI.

Those are in BEV2 form factor.

Too expensive. Period.

The price is not justifiable. You can do the maths of the battery cost.

Now that PSA bought FCA (ops, I shouldn’t have said that?) the French will let the iconic italian 500 die.
