The new Fiat 500, which was recently unveiled in Turin, is FCA's first fully electric car from the start and is set to shift the bar in the world of locally emission-free vehicles. It is intended for everyone who wants to drive the car of the future now, with Italian style and Italian elegance. Mopar®, FCA's after-sales brand, will also be part of the premiere. A progressive mobility concept cannot do without high-quality services, accessories or maximum customization options.
A tailor-made suit with Mopar accessories
From the very first sketch of the new Fiat 500, the Mopar team worked together with colleagues from the fields of technology, design and product in order to offer maximum customization. Authentic accessories from Mopar are therefore the ideal complement to the equipment variants in the model range. The extras are in perfect harmony with the spirit of the Fiat 500 and also integrate the electric experience into customers' everyday lives.
Fashion accessories for the Fiat 500
Four areas embody the soul of the Fiat 500 and its customers, and Mopar has worked in all of them. Great emphasis is placed on the fashionable element, with packages that highlight the various possible nuances of elegance and uniqueness of brass (Fashion-Pack) or chrome (Chrom-Pack), but always taking customer comfort into account. Examples are the organizer for the center console with an individually designed shelf for bags or the beauty case and compartments, for example for the phone and make-up. This goes well with wheels in diamond design, the chrome package, the key covers and the herringbone motif on the roof, which is reminiscent of the fashion industry and its craftsmanship.
Sport techno accessories for the Fiat 500
Sport is traditionally part of the history of the Fiat 500. In the Sport Techno series, Mopar has raised the properties of the new 500 to another, more powerful level. Exclusive 17-inch alloy wheels, rear-view mirror housings, front and rear logo and key covers - all in matt Maratea gray - give the car a decidedly sporty look, further emphasized by the specific motifs on the roof and on the sides. Illuminated door sill protection and the ambient light for the interior round off the range of customization options.
Accessories on the subjects of ethics & aesthetics and Be Proud
A collection of accessories made from recycled or reusable materials stands for ethical aesthetics, such as the material for the iconic “pebble” key made from the remains of plant-based production. Care and attention to the environment and sustainability are the themes of “Ethics & Aesthetics” and “Be Proud”. The new Fiat 500 shows responsibility for the environment with the depiction of a leaf on the roof and the sustainable interior mats. The Pro Clean package from Mopar, which consists of a Prime cabin filter, an air cleaner and a UV lamp, ensures a clean climate in the Fiat 500. This filters the air sucked in from the outside in advance, cleans the air inside and removes up to 99 percent of bacteria.
With all these packages, thanks to Mopar, it will hardly happen that two identical Fiat 500s can be seen side by side at the traffic lights.
Uconnect ™ services and the FIAT app
Mopar's Connected Services team has developed a range of modern services for the new Fiat 500 as the connected car of the future.
Customers of the new 500e can use the FIAT mobile app on their smartphone * or on board the car using the new infotainment system as standard to discover many functions. With the FIAT app, for example, the new 500 can be operated remotely: check the charge status, lock and unlock doors, switch on lights and program the air conditioning. There is also a search function for the nearest public charging points and vehicle maintenance can also be managed. If necessary or if there is a risk, the Fiat 500 can put the driver in contact immediately with an operator, who can then dispatch the emergency service or breakdown assistance. With the “Send & Go” function, selected destinations can be sent directly to the Fiat 500's navigation system on the smartphone. When you log in to the FIAT app for the first time, the My easy Charge service is immediately available, which not only checks available charging stations in your area and can start the charging process, but can also be used to pay for the drawn electricity via smartphone. The Fiat 500 can be charged at home with the easyWallbox.
All of these connectivity functions are made possible by the Uconnect Box, which can also be used to access the on-board services, for example to convert the car into a WiFi hotspot for up to eight devices, to use the voice services of Amazon Alexa in the car and to ensure that the navigation software is always up to date via radio transmission.
The Uconnect Box is also a certified telematics system with which customers can access offers from selected leading partners from the industry and insurance services in connection with vehicle telematics data. And that's not all: in addition to all of these standard services, a new e-commerce website has optional packages with additional added value. These services include My Alert, with control over the Fiat 500 if theft is suspected or attempted, and My Fleet Manager as a complete solution for companies that want to control and monitor their fleet via a portal.
