There's also a heavily raked rear tailgate, which includes a roof spoiler and an active rear deck-lid spoiler that can extend itself by up to 135mm at speeds above 90km/h.

Speaking with Auto Express, Fiat head and FCA marketing chief, Olivier Francois, said the new 500 will be "a new object. Totally electric".
