I just noticed that Nero (black) is no longer an optional exterior color on the 500e "Build & Price" section of the fiatusa.com website! And this is really weird- you can't even use the "Search New Inventory" feature to look for any existing black 500e's that may still be in transit!

Was there a recall on the black paint or what?

New color for next year, Nero Puro, it's "straight black" and has no metallic. You can still search for them, in a backwards kind of way.

When you hit the Build and Price page, don't bother adding options, just click the "View Inventory" link. When that page comes up with the listings of cars, go to the left column, down to Options, click "Edit", and then "Clear All".

Then you'll get all color results, and the ones without a pic are black, on the View Inventory page. LOL.

Here's a local one: http://www.fiatusaofberkeley.com/new/FIAT/2013-FIAT-500e--Berkeley-CA-08a31be90a0a004900a86249a6e34b12.htm

Wow, that's rather tricky... thanks for the explanation!

I'm a little confused by the example- it says it's a 2013 model, for sale now (has a VIN), but with an unreleased "Nero Puro [sic] Streight Black" color? I think that dealer just got a little ahead of themselves and typed in the new color (and has trouble spelling the word "straight" correctly:disturbed:). Yup, the window sticker still says regular ol' Nero...

Aw, I didn't check the window sticker!!!

But the new Nero Puro IS out there. I found both a Pop and a Cattiva coming in to Orange Coast Fiat awhile back, and they did indeed say Nero Puro.

Here's my post:

Sort by color once on the dealer site to pull up the Nero Puro, and you can then check the window sticker to be sure, like this one IS Nero Puro:

They also have some Cattiva Sports coming in, here's one:

Also a Turbo Cattiva in Nero Puro, and a 500c Pop.
