At a conference on mobility and environmental issues, Fiat announced that its range will become 100% electric by 2030.
This year marks the transition of many manufacturers to 100% electric : after Ford, Bentley, Volvo, Jaguar, Land Rover and Alpine, it’s the turn of Fiat to draw a line on thermal engines. This information was revealed by the boss of the Turin firm, Olivier François, during a conference on mobility and environmental issues, as part of the World Environment Day 2021.
During this conference held jointly with the urban architect Stefano Boeri, Olivier François discussed some ideas to improve the air quality in our cities: in a few months, the car test track located on the roof of the Lingotto, the former Fiat plant in Turin, will be completely transformed and will become the largest hanging garden in Europe, with the presence of more than 28,000 plants.
But of course Fiat also has an important role to play when it comes to urban mobility. The Fiat boss then announced: “It is our duty to bring to the market electric cars that do not cost more than vehicles with combustion engines, and to do so as soon as possible, according to the fall in battery costs. We are exploring the territory of sustainable mobility for all: this is our biggest project. Between 2025 and 2030, our product range will gradually become exclusively electric.It will be a radical change for Fiat. “
But for the democratization of 100% electric cars to be successful, certain obstacles must be overcome: according to Olivier François, it is necessary to increase the number of charging stations, whether public or private ones, but also increase the share of fast charging stations.
The new generation of Fiat 500 is only the first part of this transition to all-electric. By 2030, the rest of the Italian manufacturer’s range will have to be renewed, with flagship models like the Fiat Panda or the Fiat Punto, which according to rumors should make a comeback by borrowing the platform of the future Citroën ë -C3.
