First Fiat 500e (RED) For U.S. Rolls Off The Assembly Line

This week marked a significant milestone for the FIAT brand, as the first all-electric Fiat 500e vehicles destined for the United States rolled off the production line at the Mirafiori Assembly Plant in Turin, Italy.

Suspect being mislabeled as anti-electric (shame, shame) since I oppose most all-electric brand agendas and this is an electric I CAN support. I see this grocery getter friendly electric as a perfect around town car. I also believe Fiat, of the brands in the Stellantis portfolio, to be the most natural fit for a viable electric and the spearhead to re-launch Fiat in North America.
One should not ignore the Fiar successes in Brazil as a harbinger of things that might come from Fiat if and when this Fiat 500e opens the door to a resurgent Fiat in our domestic market place. Remember you heard it from me here so avoid those labels that don’t apply to this guy. Shocking I know !

I can't help but notice in addition to the high speed charging claims, Fiat also touts the 500e level-two charging times. Owners with a garage or even just a private driveway could set up level 2 home charging. Four hours seems like forever if one is on the road, but charging at home or work is good.

Another thing I like about the Fiat 500e is that it is a real car. A tiny car perhaps, but the instrument panel and controls have real physical buttons and switches. I hate these laminate touchscreens and tablet glued to the dashboard controls.

I missed this until today's post, that the word FIAT is missing from places like the steering wheel, the dashboard, the front cowl, etc. I see that is also missing for the EU version so nothing suggestive I suppose.
