Is Fiat bringing back the 500?

Fiat came into North America with one car, its new 500 subcompact. As sales plummeted the company tried to entice customers with a standard turbocharger, to no avail, and today the 500X is Fiat’s sole car—the 500L and 124 Spider both having disappeared as well.

2022 Fiat 500 electric (BEV)

Fiat is due to show a new car at the Los Angeles car show this month, and given that the LA show is mainly given to electric-car launches, it’s possible it will be the new-generation electric 500 already selling in Europe. That car, a bit larger than the last 500 and thoroughly re-engineered, could be the first Chrysler/FCA US battery-electric sold in the United States since the end of the 1990s’ electric minivans. If not, the first BEV is likely to be a version of the ProMaster already on sale in Europe.
