Italian Stellantis subsidiary Fiat will transition to an all-electric line-up by the end of this decade, CEO Olivier Francois has confirmed.

Speaking over the weekend as part of a wider online presentation on the future of sustainable cities, Mr Francois said: “I can say there is no doubt, we are going in the direction of electric ... Between 2025 and 2030, our product line-up will gradually become electric only. This will be a radical change for Fiat.”

“It is our duty to bring to market electric cars that cost no more than those with an internal combustion engine, as soon as we can, in line with the falling costs of batteries. We are exploring the territory of sustainable mobility for all. This is our greatest project.”

Fiat currently offers its 500 hatchback in Europe in new-generation electric guise. However, it's unclear when (or if) the model will be offered in Australia.

The manufacturer meanwhile sells the petrol-powered 500, 500X small SUV, and Doblo and Ducato vans Down Under.

Sports-focused subsidiary Abarth sells a 595 hot hatch based on the standard 500. The Mazda MX-5-based Abarth 124 Spider sports car was discontinued in 2020.
