Fiat’s fully electric 2015 500e is now available in California and Oregon.
Fiat said the 500e is available for $199 a month for 36 months with $999 due at signing.
Sales of the Fiat 500e expanded to Oregon earlier this year; the all-electric Fiat had been sold only in California since its introduction in 2013.
“Bringing the Fiat 500e to Oregon gives more customers in this environmentally minded state the opportunity to enjoy the Italian style and engaging driving dynamics of the Fiat 500, but with zero tailpipe emissions,” said Jason Stoicevich, Head of Fiat Brand for North America, Chrysler Group LLC.
For 2015, the Fiat 500e has a redesigned center console, with a new cup holder design and an additional USB port that is integrated with the radio. Two paint colors have been added for the 2015 model-year vehicles for a total of seven available exterior paint colors. The new colors are Luce Blu (light blue with a pearl finish) and Celeste (light blue).
To help alleviate range anxiety, Fiat has conceived an alternative transportation program for owners of the 500e. For times when a 500e customer needs to drive beyond the vehicle’s range or needs the carrying capability of a larger vehicle, the Fiat 500e lease provides an alternative transportation plan called the Fiat 500e Pass program.
Fiat said it partnered with Enterprise Holdings, owner and operator of the Enterprise Rent-A-Car, Alamo Rent A Car, and National Car Rental brands, on the Fiat 500e Pass program, providing purchasers and lessees of a new 500e up to 12 days of alternate transportation each year for the first three years after the date of purchase.
