Fiat 500 Electric Car? No Comment

Officially -- for the moment -- Chrysler has no comment on the future of Fiat 500 EV it is displaying at the 22nd NAIAS.

Published: 11-Jan-2010

Despite the email from Chrysler's media relations people encouraging recipients to download photos of the Fiat 500 electric car it has on display at the 2010 North American International Auto Show in Detroit today, it has nothing officially to say about it, which has to be a strange situation for people whose job it is to inform.

When EV World inquired as to what print information will be available about the car, the response from Chrysler was, essentially, "no comment."

They would have more to say the Fiat 500 EV in North America later, but not just yet. Later as in this week, this month, this year? Here too there is no indication. We'll just have to wait and see. In the meantime, since as the old adage goes that a picture is worth a thousand words, here's 3K worth in official company photos.

Ford plans to make only 10,000 of the electric vehicles a year at first - very few by Detroit standards - to test the market cautiously. GM and Toyota are following a similar cautious approach.
