Chrysler CEO Marchionne Confirms Electric Fiat 500 Production
Since its pre-bankruptcy days, Chrysler has promised the launch of an electric vehicle—including the audacious Dodge Circuit sports EV, an electric minivan, and plug-in pickup. But so far nothing production-ready has emerged. Ever since the unveiling of the Fiat 500 Elettra concept at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show, we've been waiting for official confirmation that the electric hatchback would become a reality. Now, we've stumbled across a tweet that confirms its 2012 launch.
On February 4, Sergio Marchionne, Chrysler's chief executive officer, confirmed that the US automaker is developing an electric Fiat 500. For the record, Marchionne tweeted:
"At Chrysler, we are working on an electric version of the Fiat 500 that we’ll begin manufacturing later this year."
