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.

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.
