So you hate unions, because they manage to get decent salaries to workers because you live under $18 an hour? Maybe you should, I don't know, unionize to get the same perks instead of being a boot licker? That has only gotten you $18 an hour salary after all.
Mmmm a lot of stuff there that I am not super-happy about.
First, this platform was developed with two battery packs in mind: one of 87kWh and one with 98kWh, both with NMC chemistry. It was developed with a 60kWh pack in mind as well, but then this pack was discarded (no reasons given). No LFP...
Everything in Europe now is done with a PSA bias. Same in LATAM. The new Fiat compact pick-up is a rebadge of a Peugeot pick-up that doesn't sell well in Brazil.

I don't think that the current purpose of Fiat is to continue in the US. For example, the new 600e doesn't comply with US regulations so it can't be exported to the US.
If Fiat is just a one model brand in the future with the 500e, then it is destined to disappear eventually.
