Fiat 500 EV Marchionne Tweet

According to  a tweet posted on Chrysler's official twitter account Sergio Marchionne, Chrysler CEO has confirmed that they are currently 'working on an electric version of the Fiat 500 that we'll begin manufacturing later this year'.  This is the first udpate we've heard from the Fiat-Chrysler giant since they presented the 500 BEV prototype (with 'no plans for production') at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show.  Lets hope that Fiat-Chrysler can stick to their 2010 promise to make it fast and fun to drive (it should be considering the 500's weight and likely city-range battery pack).
