The range of the new 100% electric Fiat 500 should soon be supplemented by a utility version, called the Fiat 500 Van.
Launched in 2020, the new generation of 100% electric Fiat 500 unfortunately saw his early career marred by the health crisis. Last year, Fiat boss Olivier François said that 15,000 copies of the new 500 should be sold in 2020, to then reach a cruising speed of 80,000 units per year.
Unfortunately, according to figures revealed by JATO Dynamics, only 6,353 copies of the new 500 were sold last year, while 20,000 orders have been recorded so far. While waiting for better days, the Turin firm has already expanded the range of its new Fiat 500, with the arrival of a “3 + 1” version with a third opposing door at the rear, which completes the classic three-door version and the convertible.
According to information relayed by Automotive News Europe, Fiat should soon add a commercial version to its small 100% electric city car with the 500 from, devoid of rear seats and equipped with a large trunk separated from the front seats by a load retaining grid. A silhouette that we find for example on the Renault Zoe Van or the Ford Fiesta Van, and which should be acclaimed for last mile deliveries in city centers.
A Fiat spokesperson has already confirmed the information, and even if it will be a niche product, this new utility version should help boost sales of the new Italian mini-city car. This new Fiat 500 Van should be unveiled soon, and marketed bysummer 2021.
