Recently uncovered all-new 500 isn’t the main all-electric Fiat to be built on the same platform. The Italian automaker is apparently wanting to place last year’s Centoventi idea into the creation and it will probably share its underpinnings with the 500 EV.
Olivier Francois, the Fiat Brand Global President has given information to AutoExpress and The U.K. outlet quotes him as saying
“At Geneva last year, we showed our other EV car, our urban baby, we are still working on – it was not just a flash in the pan. It’s another approach to full electric. So I think we have a bright future in the full electric approach to city cars, through the 500e and through the more non-traditional approach with this minimalist, lower prince Centoventi that is very Panda-inspired. When you invest in a new platform, and it is a completely new EV architecture, it is not for one car, so you will see it on other cars. It will be used to make the most of the investment, and used between nameplates and brands.”
The basic crux of this statement is that the creation Centoventi will be less expensive to purchase than the new Fiat 500 electric, which in Europe costs from €37,900 (which compares to $42,250). So it will be a less expensive and increasingly utilitarian EV, with a roomier inside and more space for cargo; it won’t be a style articulation on wheels, like 500.
The production model’s exterior look will remain close to the concept’s, although the rear door will probably be swapped out for a mote traditional hatch. The overall shape will make it to production pretty much unchanged, we say, while the interior will be designed with minimalism in mind – it will also reportedly allow for additional modules to be fitted to it (smartphone holder, cupholder and additional storage bins).
The creation model’s outside look will stay near the concept’s, despite the fact that the back entryway will likely be swapped out for a bit conventional hatch. The general shape will make it to creation practically unaltered, we state, while the inside will be structured considering moderation – it will likewise supposedly take into consideration extra modules to be fitted to it (smartphone holder, cupholder and extra storage bins).
