FCA announces several new EVs under Jeep, Maserati and Fiat brands by 2022
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles recently announced its new product plans, revealing that it will bring several new electric vehicles (EVs) to the market by year 2022. The new EVs from FCA will include HEVs, PHEVs, as well as all-electric vehicles.
According to the announcement made by FCA, the upcoming EVs from the company’s different brands in the next four years will include four Jeep SUVs, four Maserati EVs, and two Fiat models.
The announcement by FCA regarding its plans for launching new EVs is highly noteworthy, especially against the backdrop of the fact that the automaker apparently has some catching-up to do with its rivals in terms of electrification efforts.
With the FCA CEO Sergio Marchionne having being outspokenly critical of EVs in the past, the automaker’s efforts towards the electrification of its vehicle line-up have been fairly slow. As compared to the electrification efforts of other legacy automakers, FCA appears to be lagging behind by nearly 2 years.
The recent announcement by FCA to launch a bunch of new EVs by 2022 is an indication of the fact that the automaker’s EV line-up is poised for a significant expansion in the next four years.
With regard to FCA’s electrification efforts, Marchionne said that that FCA plans to spend 45 billion euros until 2029, out of 9 billion euros have been earmarked for electrification of its vehicles.
