2013 Fiat 500e ($TBD)
Hitting the road in time for spring 2013, the Fiat 500e puts an electric twist on this European micro car. The 500e features a 24-kWh lithium-ion battery that charges in roughly 4 hours with a level 2 charger. And with 111 horsepower and 147 lb.-ft. of torque, the zippy 500e will get you from 0 to 60 miles per hour in an estimated 9 seconds. Inside, the Fiat features a six-speaker Alpine Premium Audio System with SiriusXM satellite radio. Bluetooth and USB connectivity let users stream music and make hands-free phone calls. The Fiat Access smartphone app lets users remotely check the 500e’s charging status and tire pressure, control HVAC settings and schedule the vehicle to charge at a certain time.
