Fiat-Chrysler is currently building a dealership network in North America for the purpose of commencing the sales of Fiat models this year. The 500 will be the first Fiat to be sold in North America since the brand announced a return to the market.  The company hopes to have 130 Fiat dealers over there.

However, production of the 4C will be limited. Alfa Romeo plans to build up to just 20,000 units of the 4C over a five year period. The automaker also made it clear that another 5,000 to 10,000 units of a 4C roadster will be produced under the Abarth sport sub-brand.

The 4C will sport a price tag of €45,000 ($62,000) for sales in Europe.
