Sorry Readers, for now, we're the ONLY FIAT America you're likely to be getting! Only 1,000 of these cars are to be built, 500 2 doors, 500 Drop tops, but all are slated for Europe. Though we agree with autoblog, it would be odd to have a patriotic car scheme on a foreign car..though they do back Chrysler now.

Only time will tell however this is a move in a very exciting direction for FIAT fans, as well as for automotive job seekers!

An Electric 500???


I'm not sure how we missed it, but back in March Reuters reported that Chrysler announced their intention to bring an all-electric Fiat 500 to the US at the same time they canceled plans for a hybrid version of the Ram pickup.

This move seems to be consistent the apparent Chrysler strategy to downsize their current truck-heavy lineup.

7 speed auto trans for the Fiat 500?

Chris over at Fiat500USA Blog posted up a great article about the new 7 speed dual dry auto transmission for the Fiat 500. This transmission should allow a sportier and quicker shift between gears but also allow for the convenience of an automatic transmission.
