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.
