Fiat picks AeroVironment as preferred provider of home charging for Fiat 500e
22 August 2013
Fiat selected AeroVironment, Inc. as the preferred provider of home charging stations and installations for the battery-electric Fiat 500e. Fiat is the fifth plug-in electric vehicle (EV) auto manufacturer to choose AeroVironment as its full-service home charging partner.
The 2013 Fiat 500e features a 24-kWh Lithium-ion battery that will allow drivers to travel an estimated 108 miles (175 km), and uses an industry-standard SAE J1772 recharge connector. The FIAT-branded 240-volt refueling station will charge the Fiat 500e in four hours or less versus the approximate 20 hours it would take using a standard 120-volt charging cable. AeroVironment’s UL-listed station can be installed indoors or outdoors.
Fiat 500e owners can bundle the home charger and installation with the car purchase. AeroVironment-certified, licensed electricians who are also specially qualified to support EV drivers perform on-site installation and services.
AeroVironment’s broad line of home charging systems includes the 240-volt home charging system and a do-it-yourself wall-mounted “plug-in” unit that is available for dealer stock.
