Even though Fiat was waiting to officially take the wraps off its 500e at the 2012 LA Motor show, two images have just sneaked out much ahead of the show. The images brought to public view the electric car which we all saw in concept form three years ago. Now with the LA debut just a few weeks away, the car is also set to go on sale in California next year.
A view of the pictures suggests that the car looks similar to its standard version – Fiat500. But it stands distinct with re-profiled side skirts, aerodynamic tweaks, a contrasting color front bumper and re-profiled wheels. Another unique feature of the eco friendly car is the pushbutton gear selector, which replaces the standard shifter.
The interior has been given the orange and white theme. There are rumors doing the rounds, which hint that the 2013 Fiat 500e could be powered by an electric motor with 100 hp and a lithium-ion battery.
We will have to wait a tad more to get our hands on more details about the EV.
