No 500xe planned - loses too much money

Fiat has no plans to offer an electrified version of the 500x. It currently does so with the smaller 500.

Apparently FCA Loses $20,000 On Every Fiat 500e sold!

So do Renault apparently but they're propped up by the French national banks to remain in the market.

Probably why Fiat introduced the Fullback, recoup some of those losses.

Actually, as an after thought given the 500X is on the Jeep Renegade platform, I suspect this will come down to whether the US market wants one or not.

If PHEV or hybrid SUV's take off, Jeep and FCA will surely follow suit.

Probably not designed the platform for electrification. It seems to really make an electric car you need to start off with an electric platform. Modifying the existing one is just too expensive and a box ticking exercise.
