If you’ve been paying any attention to automotive developments, you know that GREEN is rushing forward at the speed of light, and manufacturers are so serious about this that they arranged for all of the media to drive electric cars around the streets surrounding the L.A. convention center.

One to consider and one to wait on:         

FIAT 500E

 

Fiat 500E

 

According to Fiat, “Ugliness is the worst form of pollution”, and they’ve wisely changed only the motivation.  Now a 111-hp (83 kW) electric motor and floor-mounted 24 kWh lithium-ion battery. 0-to-60 mph in 9.0 seconds with a sub 4-hour recharge. 

 

SMART CAR ELECTRIC

 

Smart EV

 

I like the idea of an urban utility vehicle.  Faster than walking (just), anywhere outside of a heavily populated area and this thing isn’t fast enough (yet).  And Smart EV is going to get run over (literally) by the very stiff competition.
