Chrysler has just announced it’s plans to produce the pure electric version Fiat 500EV which will be based on the Fiat 500 platform in 2012.
The Fiat 500EV was showcased at the 2010 NAIAS earlier this year and Chrysler’s Senior Vice President Engineering said ‘The Fiat 500 is
a small, lightweight platform perfect for integrating electric-vehicle
technology.’

As far as propulsion the 2012 Fiat 500EV will use a high power electric powertrain module backed by an advance Lithium-Ion battery pack and an EV module that will manage the flow of energy.
Further details like the 2012 Fiat 500EV price will be announced as the launch date is getting closer.
