    LaPrima

    Any whispers or rumors of a version of the LaPrima electric for North America?

    It is unlikely, per the current press. At around GBP35,000 (30,000 for the base) it's in the Mercedes price range. That's around $39K to $46K before the "normal" markup for the US market.

    You get government discounted incentives On EV’s. The 500e is still cheaper then a Tesla model 3. Lots of those cars are roaming the roads. FCA needs some kind of EV, in it stable. All other major car brand have them. Something new to keep the Fiat brand afloat. Most people lease EV’s, instead of buying them.

    Seems to me a vehicle like the LaPrima in FCA's stable would go a long way to establishing the company as an innovative EV producer. Especially relevant since California just passed a law outlawing the sale of new gasoline powered vehicles after 2035. Morre than likely other states will soon follow.

    I also suspect that regulations wouldn't vary much from country to country since emissions are no longer a major issue. That might lend itself well for allowing the import of individual vehicles from Europe. Nice if it could happen.

    FCA has the Jeep Renegade and Compass 4XE models and the Chrysler Pacifica, all with plug-in hybrid. Both offer 30 miles electric-only range. The Jeeps are currently slotted for everywhere but the US, but might be available in a year or two. FCA tends to test their cars in Europe before risking changed in the US. I'm guessing they'll appear in the US once Hybrid sales jump again. If I understand the tech correctly, they are FWD gas, with the motor filling in AWD and/or electric-only.

    The average US commute is about 32 miles.

    This EV trend does bring up an interesting question though. What would be the impediments to a universally acceptable electric car?

    Seems to me the emissions/environmental concerns have been successfully addressed. Safety issues have been pretty much homogenized, so that shouldn't present much of a problem these days. Am I missing anything else from a technical standpoint?

    If the above is true, quite likely the only other roadblock to an individuals access to vehicles from another country would simply be political B---S---. From a personal viewpoint, a vehicle like the LaPrima would be an interesting choice for someone like myself with messed up eyesight.

    Apparently no one knows what would be a universally accepted alternative to ICE. The EV has reached a point where it's reliable. Used as a plug-in hybrid, range is not limited, MPG is great and it's nearly as environmentally friendly. (Though plug-in and hybrid aren't 100% compatible.) Perhaps it's the high cost that keeps many away. The Jeep 4xe models are about 40% more expensive (in the UK) than here and maybe $40 to 45K vs $24K in the US.

    I really like the new 500. It's just too much of a lifestyle change and the inconvenience factor is just too much for me to overcome.

    Look how beautiful they display the 500e and other Fiats, in this setting.

    I believe home charging is the largest barrier. Large percentages of the population do not live in a single family home with enough garage space to plug in their vehicle. People live in apartments, townhomes and condos without garages or even adjacent parking. Even living in a community with large garages people prefer to leave their $100,000 Range Rover in the driveway and keep their garage full of $500 of "stuff" they never use
