FCA’s new plan for the lineup electrification were unveiled at the conference, where company management presented the current status of their brands along with near future plans. Currently there are two major electrified models – all-electric Fiat 500e hatch and hybrid Chrysler Pacifica van.
Though, the FCA plans to expand the brands lineups with several all-electric and plug-in vehicles by 2022. Company management claims about 9 billion euros to be invested into the electrification project.
Surprisingly, most of PHEVs and BEVs are prepared for Jeep. Renegade, Compass, Wrangler and Grand Commander SUVs will mainly get both options. However, so far most of them are destined for Chinese market.
Maserati is another brand of FCA to get electrified – and actually, the whole lineup of Italian automaker is expected to get a plug-in version, including Levante, Ghibli, Quattroporte, GranTurismo and GranCabrio. Moreover, Maserati claims to launch a new all-electric coupe Alfieri by 2022, featuring active aerodynamics package and 0-60 mph acceleration in approximately 2 seconds.
