2010 Detroit Preview: Details emerge on the Fiat 500 electric

Fiat 500C

In a couple of days, Chrysler and Fiat will take the wraps off of their Fiat 500 electric concept at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show. The duo have said nothing about a production model but we wouldn’t discount the possibility.

According to AutoExpress, the Fiat 500 electric that we’ll see in Detroit will have a more than 5,000 lithium-ion battery cells. It will travel a total of 150 miles on a single charge thanks to a regenerative braking system and new aerodynamic updates. Recharging from a standard household socket should take up to 10 hours.

Since the batteries will increase the overall weight of the car, 0-60 mph will come in around 10 seconds with a top speed of 90 mph.

We’ll try to gather up more details at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show since Chrysler will not be holding a press conference.
