The all-electric Fiat 500e electric car is now available in Japan. The Land of the Rising Sun is the third country outside of Europe where the Fiat electric car is sold. Israel and Brazil were the other two.
A video message from "Casa 500" in Turin was shown to the media and the Japanese dealer network to go along with the presentation. The "Casa 500" is a multimedia museum on the old FIAT Lingotto plant site. It tells the story of the past, the future, the culture, and the unique character of the Fiat 500, which is the brand's most important car. The Fiat 500e electric city car now makes up about half of all sales of the Fiat 500. The Fiat 500 Hybrid makes up the other half. With these new models, the Fiat 500 family is up to date and points the way to more sustainable and environmentally-friendly transportation.
Fiat CEO Olivier François: "After Israel and Brazil, the Fiat 500e is now going to Japan." People in Europe buy the Fiat 500e electric city car more than any other electric car. The Fiat 500e is even the best-selling electric car in Italy. In Germany, it is also one of the best electric cars. I want to know how Japanese people will react to the new Fiat 500e. A hybrid car company's home country already has more than 60,000 people who drive or love the iconic Fiat 500 and Abarth model variants. This growing group of fans is sure to love the Fiat 500e's 100% electric drive."
The Fiat 500e, designed and built-in Turin, has an unmistakably Italian look, is connected, and has new technology. It is also a lot of fun to drive. Many people love the Fiat 500e electric car because it is environmentally friendly and efficient. The original Cinquecento from 1957 still has a lot of fans around the world today. The Fiat 500e's abilities have also been proven by its victories in many European competitions, where the iconic car won awards from the public and professionals in the automotive, design, and lifestyle fields.
The Fiat 500e electric city car can be bought with an 87 kW electric motor and a 42 kWh lithium-ion battery in Japan. The Fiat 500e comes in sedan and cabriolet versions. In addition, the Fiat 500e ICON comes in sedan and cabriolet versions, with an electrically operated soft top. This means that the Fiat 500e is the only electric car on the Japanese market that comes with a lot of fun in the sun. Celestial Blue, Ocean Green, Mineral Gray, Rose Gold, and Ice White are the five body colors to choose from.
