FIAT at the 2012 L.A. Show: Ma Mopar’s Sexy Italian Cousin Stuns
The Abarth is essentially the same 160hp, six-speed car with the cloth roof, and the gorgeous exhaust note should sound even better without a roof muffling it. No price was available for the electric version, but FIAT did release some details. Motivation comes from a 24kWh battery good for 111hp and 147lb-ft of torque, and range will come in somewhere between 80 and 100 miles, depending whether you’re cruising down the highway or trapped in stop-and-go city traffic. On a 240-volt outlet–like a washing machine takes–the sexy little Italian can fully charge its battery in just under four hours, which seems reasonable enough.
