Fiat Chrysler invests $1.1 billion in next-gen 500 EV

Fiat Chrysler will pour US$788 million ($1.1 billion) into the next-generation Fiat 500 EV, despite failing to merge with Renault. The investment will be used (in part) to build a new production line at Fiat Chrysler's plant in Turin, Italy, initially capable of building 80,000 units per year. The plant will employ around 1200 people dedicated to electric vehicles.

2020 BMW M4 Convertible spied

Photographers have snapped the new BMW M4 Convertible this week, giving us a first look at the next generation of the marque’s hot ragtop.
