While Fiat and Stellantis have not revealed any specifications for the new 500e, the brand announced that it will be available during the first quarter of 2024. A press release confirms there will be no new gas-powered 500 in the States, with the automaker saying: “The new 500e is irresistibly cool, small and Italian; it is the ultimate fashion accessory. If you want it, you must go electric because that is the only way it will be offered in North America.” It can’t get much clearer than that.
With its launch, the 500e will be one of the first EVs from Stellantis in the United States, along with Dodge’s EV muscle car and the upcoming EV Ram truck. To celebrate the new EV’s launch, Fiat worked with designers from Giorgio Armani, Kartell, and Bvlgari to make three special one-off editions of the electric car. According to Fiat, the designs show off the 500e’s sustainable nature. The new car along with all the designer editions will be revealed in its full EV glory at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
