The Fiat 500 will be available in North America with a 1.4L Multiair engine in the fourth quarter of 2010. It will be built in Mexico starting December 2010. A 1.4L Multiair turbo is expected to arrive in the fourth-quarter of 2011.
Following those models, Chrysler Group LLC and Fiat SpA have promised that they will offer the North American market a pure electric version of the Fiat 500 in 2012.
We’ve previously heard reports of a four-door version of the 500, which is scheduled to arrive in Europe at the end of 2011. The four-door 500 is also expected to be sold in North America.
Sources are saying that the four-door model will most likely be called the Fiat 600 and will be built alongside the 500 in Toluca, Mexico. Power is rumored to come from the 500’s 4-cylinder engine range.
