    Fiat a dawn of a new era March 4th

    This just popped up on my Face book page. A full electric, or hybrid 500X. Chris do you know?

    Oops... someone accidentally leaked... and it's beautiful. They say it's a new platform, not a build from the standard 500.

    The 500 emblem, sure is large between the mustache bars. The concept drawing. Looks like the new model, will be a 4 door. Small rear doors. Easy access to the rear seats. Love the retro wheels, like what’s on the 1957 version model. Wonder what the driving range is. I would love see Fiat it imported here.

    lol Well, we'll have to wait and see. It might not come to the US at all. I rather like it, but it's a show car so who knows what the final trim will be.

    I love the styling, in the main, but would yank that emblem and go traditional. Remember, Turin once showed this 500...

    In Europe, it will compete with the mini E, the Honda E, VW EV’s , 4 and 5 others. The interior is still clean and simple. Retains the speedo cluster. Looks like Fiat going to use, upscale interior materials.

    I could hate on it being electric; but that's an issue with the entire industry not just Fiat. Electric rules out purchases for many people who do not live in areas with electric infrastructure, people who live in apartments or rentals where there is no possibility in the foreseeable future of electric charging points, and who have real world jobs not silicone valley or corporate offices, who park in actual parking lots that don't have charging points.

    But whatever, I guess you have to build one or the other first.

    If it even comes to the US, I certainly won't be buying one because electric just isn't an option. Will probably buy a third or 4th "older" 20-teens Fiat 500 like the two I already have.

    Yup, a 120-150 mile range under ideal conditions won't cut it for me. Add in hills, cold weather and battery degradation and I'd have trouble making it to work and back.

    Agreed, the 500e isn't for everyone. Even when practical, 2/3 of Americans are hard set against them. If you commute farther than 80 miles round trip (for the new model) you'll probably need a work-place charging station, a hassle and expensive proposition. If they do meet your current needs, no telling if your situation could change in a year. My main reason for not owning one, though, is the same reason I didn't buy a Cabrio... really need to park it in a garage.

    Rental houses aren't generally a problem w/ EVs (if it has a garage), or some apartments. Battery degradation isn't usually a factor because the battery has a built-in "buffer". The car can "refuel" overnight from a standard outlet and in our area at a fraction of gas prices. (Offsets the high initial price.) I tried to purchase one for its convenience... no gas stations, and fewer hours spent in a service center. Ironically, there are more 500e's sold in other states, than in Oregon... one of the 2 states that sold them new... and when they did appear they were higher priced.
