Roadster Salon's First All-Electric Spider America Now Ready for Production

BARRINGTON, Ill., Jan. 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on the beloved classic Fiat 124 convertible, The Spider America EV is the ultimate expression of Roadster Salon technology and craftsmanship. As seen in the Robb Report, https://robbreport.com/motors/cars/roadster-salone-1983-fiat-pininfarina-spider-america-ev-conversion-2891819/.

The Spider America is also the first custom EV on the market to feature a manual transmission. Due to the prodigious torque on tap, the car can be driven as a standard manual with clutch, or simply put in town or highway drive mode?and enjoyed like a conventional automatic. Performance is nothing short of "electrifying". Assisted by their trade partner in California, Electric GT?a special proprietary drive line was developed just for Roadster Salon.

Initially two EV versions of the Spider will be offered in addition to their gas driven models. Roadster's flagship creation The Spider America EV, http://roadstersalon.com/models/spider-corsa-evoluzione/.


Priced from $139,995, the loaded Spider America options list is limited but performance is not. Zero to sixty flies by in approximately six seconds--or half the time of a standard spider. For those who dare, a top speed of over 130MPH can be achieved quickly and with ease. Range is better than Fiat's own electric model, the 500e.

In keeping with Italian tradition, a less costly "Junior" version is also available. Based on Roadster Salon's popular Lusso S2, the EV Jr http://roadstersalon.com/models/ev-jr/ uses a single electric motor and a simplified battery package. Capable of acceleration around 7 seconds to 60 mph, "the Jr" has more than enough power and range to make a Sunday cruise entertaining and worry free.  The EV Junior base price is $89,995.

A limited number of reservations for 2020 production are now being offered to the public for the Spider America EV and Junior. Refundable $5000 reservations are now being accepted. Roadster promises to provide customers with a firm build date within 90 days of the reservation. Once the build is finalized, a more substantial deposit is required. See their website at www.roadstersalon.com for details or call 847.769.7880 to reserve your Italian work of art. Only a limited number of production slots for 2020 are still available, with 20 exclusive units planned. Each Spider EV will have signed and numbered commemorative plates.

*final specifications still being determined at release date
