Fiat 500 in the US???

Last Updated:

Sergio Marchionne, Fiat’s big boss, mentioned this week that the all new 500 could be sold in the US within 2 or 3 years!

Let’s hope this time he’s right.
Fiat’s been teasing us with a “US return” for Alfa Romeo for the past decade.

They could sell the cars through Maserati dealers, or open their own, like BMW did for Mini.

If it worked for the Mini Cooper, Iand think it could work for the 500. A convertible is coming up as well.
So far, no other Fiat model is being considerd for the US

    Looks like Alfa is send brit journos over to gauge the feel on the Alfa Spider. Article says they’d sell it through Maserati dealers – but there aren’t exactly a whole lot of those. Anyway if Alpha does come here, Fiat couldn’t be that far behind – but how they heck would they sell a car like this through only a few dozen Maserati dealers?

  2. I like it(although it may be a tad bit smaller than I care to drive).
    I agree, where they going to sell this?
    If they had more Maserati dealerships, they could do like the Toyota/Scion dealerships, perhaps?

  3. Wow, that would be great for you Americans. Especially because the 500 is based on the same platform as the all-new Ford Ka coming next year, also with a roadster, the Streetka II. So maybe you’ll get both, the Fiat and the Ka!
