Your trusted co-driver is always by your side in the New 500 «la Prima» hatchback. The first small electric car with Assisted Driving Level 2 (ADAS), for enhanced safety in the urban environment.
YOUR TRUSTED CO-DRIVER
Looking for a co-driver? We’ve got you covered. Thanks to its technology, the New 500 «La Prima» will help you in different conditions, even in traffic jams or stop-and-go situations. Firstly set your speed and the distance from the vehicle that precedes you: the car will autonomously keep them, and it will stop when needed. Thanks to the Traffic Jam Assist, the New 500 «La Prima» accelerates and brakes for you in specific traffic conditions. Its system will also maintain your vehicle in the middle of the lane, reducing burden and fatigue on the driver, at any speed.
STAY IN YOUR LANE
Travel safely in your own lane. When you are driving over 37 mph, the New 500 helps to prevent you from accidentally drifting across road lines, autonomously keeping you in your lane. When the system detects that the vehicle is about to unintentionally drift out of its lane, it warns the driver via visual, audio and haptic signals (a vibration in the steering wheel), in order to counter-steer as necessary.
When you slow to under 8 mph and prepare to park, the 360° view-parking sensors with 11 sensors placed on the front, side and rear fascia of the New 500 «la Prima» Hatchback detect any obstacle around the vehicle, notifying you of rear object proximity.
BLIND SPOT MONITORING
Blind spots are a thing of the past. When driving between 9 mph and 87 mph, the New 500 «la Prima» Hatchback’s ultrasonic sensor is able to detect objects in the blind areas both on the sides and at the rear of the car, and will alert you with an acoustic signal and a light on the side mirror.
REAR VIEW CAMERA
Easily keep an eye on everything - even when it’s directly behind you. The rear-view camera transmits a high-resolution image of whatever is behind the car with clarity and sharpness on the New 500 «la Prima» Hatchback infotainment display. The image is projected with dynamic grid lines and a center line graphic, which adjusts to guide your path as the steering wheel is turned.
AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKING
Safer for you and everyone else on the road: the New 500 «la Prima» Hatchback brakes automatically to help avoid or mitigate collision with other vehicles, pedestrians or cyclists, at up to 80 mph. At first, the car just alerts the driver with an acoustic and visual warning in the instrument cluster; if the driver does not respond, the system activates the vehicle’s brakes, helping to avoid or mitigate potential impact.
Driver fatigue will no longer be a problem, as the New 500 «la Prima» Hatchback helps you to stay alert behind the wheel. The system can detect the initial signs of fatigue by monitoring lateral movements of the vehicle, advising you to take a break where necessary via a visual and acoustic warning on the instrument cluster.
Your vehicle always has your back, especially in an emergency. In the event of a severe accident causing the deployment of the airbags, an automatic emergency call will be forwarded directly from a dedicated in-vehicle system to a 112 European Emergency Number. Your position and vehicle status will be immediately transmitted to facilitate a faster rescue, and an SOS button is easily reachable in front of the interior rear mirror; it can be pressed to receive quick help when in need.* * The system only activates in case of severe accident and airbag deployment.
