I just found out today that Fiat has responded to customer demand and is going to be offering the color combo some of us wanted all along! They will now offer the black interior option, complete with orange striping along with the electric orange exterior color. For those who weren’t excited about having to try to keep a white interior clean, this is great news!
This information is courtesy of McKevitt Fiat in Berkeley, CA who called me today to ask me my final color choice for my Fiat 500e which should arrive in 4-6 weeks! the timing is hard to predict as they are still arriving on a rather haphazard schedule as Fiat struggles to meet the far great than expected demand for there first electric vehicle.
The only remaining mystery is whether or not the front fascia will be colored orange or white. It usually is colored to match the cars interior color but based on one sample my dealer has seen, it is likely to be white rather than black. This maybe due to the fact that orange cars were all planned with white interiors in mind. Hopefully this will have changed by the time I receive my car as the black and orange contrast is striking!
