America gets two special editions, while Canada gets one, yet both. It makes sense, we swear.

Fiat this week announced the next batch of special edition models for the forthcoming 500e electric small car. With the novel "product drop" approach to the launch, Fiat is hoping to boost interest in the 500e with small runs of unique trims, and the "Inspired by Beauty" and "Inspired by Music" models build on this.

Up first is the Inspired by Beauty model, which is dipped in a unique Rose Gold paint. A smattering of body-color bits maximize the rich hue too, while there's also additional chrome trim to further differentiate this special edition. Inside, the Beauty features beige "eco-leather" seating with a contrasting black dashboard.

In stark contrast, the Inspired by Music model goes for a darker look care of Piano Black—get it?—paint. Inside, Fiat has fit a seven-speaker JBL sound system with a Virtual Venus feature. Working with Maestro Andrea Bocelli, Fiat has included four audio settings: My Music Room, My Recording Studio, Giuseppe Verdi Opera House Pisa, and Open-air Arena.

Both models also feature a wider suite of driver assistance tech, securing Level 2 functionality care of full-range adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist.

Mechanical changes are non-existent: the 2024 500e still uses a 42.0-kilowatt-hour battery pack, produces 117 horsepower and 162 pound-feet of torque. Range is said to be 141 miles (227 kilometers).

In Canada, these two special editions are combined to form "La Prima." This latest edition nets the audio upgrades from the IbM model, while also featuring the exterior tweaks and Rose Gold of the Beauty. Canadians also have the choice of black or white exterior paint.

America's two special edition 500e models will stat from $37,595, including destination. Canada's La Prima will sticker for $47,190 in both Quebec and British Columbia, and be eligible for both federal and provincial tax rebates.
