Fiat to go fully-electric by 2030
The world is moving towards future mobility and electric cars are the future. Many brands have either now launched their EVs or developing their EVs to launch shortly. Fiat also launched its all-electric 500e with funky looks and impressive powertrain. Fiat CEO, Olivier François said, "It is our duty to bring to market electric cars that cost no more than those with an internal combustion engine, as soon as we can, in line with the falling costs of batteries. We are exploring the territory of sustainable mobility for all: this is our greatest project. Between 2025 and 2030, our product line-up will gradually become electric-only."
The company officials also talked highly about urban mobility and its advantages to the environment. With the prices of the batteries falling, the high prices of EVs will also come down and may cost similar to the ICE counterparts soon. The brand hasn't revealed whether it will launch all-new electric models or electrify the current models on sale worldwide. However, the brand hinted that the upcoming all-electric portfolio will contain more small cars. Talking about the current portfolio, Fiat offers the 500e, 500, 500x, 500L, Panda, Tipo and 124 Spyder. Fiat is also developing a small EV named Centoventi that was showcased at the 2019 Geneva Motorshow. It will be underpinned by an all-new EV architecture that will also be used in future models.
