Is small, is trendy and now is available in an electric version, too. Meet the new Fiat 500e, the eco-friendly car based on one of the most successful models built by the Italian car manufacturer. Planned to be officially launched at the 2012 LA Auto Show, which will be open between 30th of November and 9th of December, the Fiat 500e will be available only for the US Market.


The Fiat 500e will have a 100HP electric engine, an autonomy of 160 kilometers and will be sold at a starting price of 35.000 US dollars. According to Sergio Marchionne, the boss of the Fiat Group, each electric 500 sold unit will bring losses of up to 10.000 US dollars.


The reason why this tiny electric car will be adapted for the US citizens’ power sockets consists of a list of mandatory requirements available in some US states, which refer directly to the sales of cars with zero CO2 emissions.


The new Fiat 500e sold in US will be made in Mexico, inside a factory owned by Chrysler.
