“An electric 500 exists but there’s no demand in Europe, despite the emphasis from some manufacturers. What we believe is hybrid presents an opportunity for the future, for the city car class and others.”
Luca Napolitano, head of Fiat for Europe, Middle East and Africa, says that Europe will most likely not see the electric Fiat 500 anytime soon. The small EV has been available in the United States since 2013.
“The day is nearing when the typical EV motorists will be able to leave home with a full charge, go about their daily routine, and return home with ample charge remaining in their Nissan Leaf or Renault Zoe.”
Carlos Ghosn, head of the Renault-Nissan Alliance, announced in a LinkedIn post that we will hear more about the Alliance’s aim to end “range anxienty” later this year, and to make EVs “a mainstream choice” for customers.
