We already know that Fiat plans to bring a hotter version of the 500 sometime next year, with the 175-horsepower Abarth variant likely to come in both coupe and cabrio flavors. Now comes word that two other 500-branded models are on their way and one of them will be squarely aimed at families.

According to AutoWeek, we can expect to see a fully electric version of the 500 next year, packing a lithium-ion battery pack and carrying a sticker of around $30,000. Development mules are currently testing at Chrysler's Technical Center in Auburn Hills, Michigan, and it's assumed that the 500 EV will have a range of around 100 miles.

More interestingly, the previously confirmed Fiat crossover will be branded as a 500 and will come equipped with four doors, five seats and a new four-cylinder. The platform, however, will not be based on the current 500's underpinnings and instead use a new compact architecture that will underpin the Compass replacement, two other Jeeps and a new pint-sized crossover from Chrysler. Expect the mini 'ute to debut at next year's Geneva Motor Show, with sales beginning in Europe late next year with the U.S. version arriving in 2013.
