Fiat is saying goodbye to its urban runaround, the Fiat 500 and its all-electric 500e sibling, in North America, confirming that it will discontinue production of the cars.
The move will trim Fiat’s range in the US and Canada down to just three models.
In June 2019, for example, Fiat sold a mere ten of its 500 cars, half the number from the same month the year previous.
With those sort of numbers involved, Fiat Chrysler’s suggestion that it expects to have sufficient 2019 500 and 500e inventory to last into 2020 doesn’t seem far fetched.
With the gas and electric cars retired, it will leave Fiat North America with the 500X crossover, the 500L compact utility, and the 124 Spider roadster.
So far this year Fiat has sold a total of 107 of its 124 Spiders, and 23 of the 500X.
