Following reports that the Fiat 500 would see the inclusion of a new all-electric powertrain in 2020, Fiat Chrysler has confirmed the model will actually become a dedicated EV — foregoing internal combustion entirely.

FCA Fine Flying Solo, Equally Happy With Help

With Sergio Marchionne gone, most assumed Fiat Chrysler Automobiles would swiftly enact the late CEO’s plan to convince another automaker to partner with the company. Until recently, FCA was viewed as a dinosaur within the industry — limping along since its Fiat acquisition with a lineup of unpopular European imports and oversized American vehicles that couldn’t possibly endure […] The post FCA Fine Flying Solo, Equally Happy With Help appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Jeep’s Green Wave Crashes Into Europe, Will Ripple Back to North America

Fiat Chrysler’s reputation as an automaker that scoffs at fuel economy mandates is slowly being chipped away. Never mind the much-loathed Fiat 500e; it was the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid that really got the ball rolling, with eTorque-engined Ram 1500s upping the company’s green cred for 2019. At this week’s Geneva Motor Show, the high-flying Jeep […] The post Jeep’s Green Wave Crashes Into Europe, Will Ripple Back to North America appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Here’s a Car Guaranteed Not to Boost Fiat Chrysler’s Sales Numbers

No, it’s not a Fiat of any size or description — it’s the Alfa Romeo 4C.

Through this product intro, Fiat Chrysler revealed the 4C will linger on for the […] The post Here’s a Car Guaranteed Not to Boost Fiat Chrysler’s Sales Numbers appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Unusual Vintage Auto Design: The 1959 Fiat 600 Multipla Microvan

Something I love: Cars that look as if the designer has never seen a car before. That's praise, not an insult. If your brain wasn't clogged with 10,000 Instagram images of what a car is supposed to look like, what would you draw? Designing something fresh was undoubtedly easier in the 1950s, prior to globalization and the internet. Take a look at this car that could only have come from mid-century Italy, the 1959 Fiat 600 Multipla: You know it's a quirky design whe...

Supra Vs. Z4: The Fine Line Between Toyota & BMW Sports Cars

The 2020 Toyota Supra is destined for greatness. But there’s a problem. The BMW Z4 M40i is basically the same car albeit with a more powerful motor. Which begs the question: when is a Toyota sports car not a BMW? Where does one end and the other begin? The much anticipated hype is over. In the immortal words of my colleague Tony Borroz, it’s time to stop frothing at the mouth since the 2020 Toyota Supra is finally here. And boy, what a journey it has been, huh? I’m pretty sure Toyota did ev...

As it prepares to launch a battery electric crossover, likely named Mach E, in 2020, Ford’s product boss told Blue Oval fans — and nervous investors — that the company isn’t in the habit of losing money with its products. As such, the upcoming Mustang-inspired crossover, like Ford’s other planned EVs, won’t be Fiat 500e-like […] The post Our EVs Will Turn a Profit, Ford Says appeared first on The Truth About Cars.

Was 2018 as Good a Year for Electric Vehicles as They Say?

Teslas galore. But at the Tesla factory, not on the streets of most cities. Supporters of battery electric vehicles (EV and/or BEV) are rapturous about the 81% increase in electric vehicles sold in 2018 compared to 2017.  This table shows the breakdown, with a total of 361,307 vehicles sold in the US in 2018, compared to 199,826 sold in 2017. We should add a disclaimer.  We love electric-powered vehicles.  We’d like nothing more than to get a fully loaded Tesla, and, failing that, just about an...

Fiat 500: Still Influencing Design & History 60 Years On

A vintage Fiat 500 will be displayed at the Museum of Modern Art in 2019. The tiny, yet affordable car helped put Europe on wheels following World War II. MoMA’s exhibit includes the 500 as one of the world’s more significant design works. Last year, on its 60th birthday, the Fiat 500 joined the permanent collection of the MoMA, the Museum of Modern Art, in New York. MoMA acquired a 500 F series, arguably the most popular 500, manufactured between 1965 and 1972. Fiat’s “great little car” becam...

Junkyard Find: 1976 MG MGB

In all of my decades of visiting junkyards, one thing has remained constant: I’ll see a handful of Fiat 124 Sport Spiders and MG MGBs every year, about the same number in 2018 as I saw each year in 2001 or 1987.

Fiat Chrysler Substituting Fiat Production, Adding More Jeeps in Italy

During Fiat Chrysler CEO Sergio Marchionne’s final days, he said his company would begin prioritizing Jeep production in Europe. This of course comes at the expense of the Fiat brand, which lost a sizable hunk of the European market after 2009 and appears to be outright failing in the United States.

Get Yer Fiats Out: Hilariously Unlikely FCA Marketing Tie-up Includes an Unfortunate Typo
