Chrysler will build 4-versions of the Fiat 500 in the U.S., including convertible variant

We were just wondering last week if Fiat/Chrysler will offer the Fiat 500C convertible when the 500 comes to the United States in 2010. Today it has been confirmed that Chrysler will build and sell four versions of the 500 minicar in the United States starting 2010, reports Automotive News.

Robert Giolito, designer of the Fiat 500 and the head of Fiat styling, confirmed that Chrysler will build four different models of the compact Fiat car including a hatchback, convertible, station wagon and sporty hatchback.

Giolito said that a fifth model, a four-wheel-drive SUV, is also a possibility.

Fiat announced last week that it sells 54 percent of the 500 outside of Italy and expects the number to grow significantly when the car goes on sale in the United States. The Fiat 500 will be the only model that will where the Fiat badge when it comes to the stateside.
