Chrysler confirmed that the car will be launched in 2013, and in the USA already somewhere in 2012. The announcement is somewhat amazingly bold, given that Chrysler did not fully decide what he would offer for the North American version of Fiat 500 with a gasoline engine.
This car will debut at the end of this year and will be produced in Toluka, Mexico. The car manufacturer has already announced prices for Fiat 500. In a telephone conversation with Inside Line last Monday, the representative of Chrysler Rick Deneau was not able to give a comment on Fiat 500 EV. “I have no information about the future and price of the car”. He also mentioned that he could not comment where the production of Fiat 500 EV will be carried out.
In the statement, Chrysler said that “prices will be declared closer to the launch of the car, but they will compete with the prices of similar electrical vehicles that are already in the market.”In this case, it is likely that Fiat 500 EV will be in the region of $ 30,000.
Chrysler will play a key role in the development of Fiat 500 EV, said Deneau. Fiat 500 EV transmissions will consist of three main systems: a powerful electric power module, an advanced lithium-ion battery and an EV control unit for controlling power flows.
One Chrysler Insider, who did not want to give his name, said that Fiat 500 EV demonstrates all the power of Chrysler-Fiat Alliance. “The Alliance put forward just a sweet option for us,” he said. “We did not have a car that was so small and light as Fiat 500”. But such a car is ideal for electrification, he noted.
