as per this answer from Fiat to Chrysler Dealers question:

Q: "Is the vehicle launch delayed until March?"

A: "NO! The vehicle launch remains on-time and will begin production this December and start shipping in January of next year as a 2012 model. The reference to March that has been misinterpreted refers to the product marketing launch activities for the Fiat 500."

also, along the same note:

Q: "What is the approval process for the dealer proposals?"

A: ".....the communication of all appointments will be completed by October 15th, 2010."

this last answer means that at the time of this memo, all dealers that were selected would be made by October 15th....TOMORROW!!!! :D

maybe some word will be out to all of US come Friday or Monday??? :rolleyes:

Mmmm, pretty early to be a 2012 model, but car companies are funny like that...

I wonder what model year the EV will be, I guess a 2013.

So timeframe is: guessing

500 Primas made starting Dec--finished in Jan, selling in Feb and March
500 sport made starting Jan, selling March and beyond.
Sales marketing (TV ads and such) starting in March (maybe Feb?)

Then C version comes summer
Abarth version comes fall or winter.

EV version and New 500 comes 2012 in fall.

Seems soon for a new version...I thought the US version was the new version that Europe was getting next year?

Either way, I assume the 2013 newer version coming in late 2012 won't be too much of a change (though seeing the 2 cylinder engine would be cool)

In 2013 I will be getting the EV 500 no matter what.
