Coming Soon: Fiat 500

The Fiat 500 appears to be heading to American shores as early as January 2011, a product of the Fiat takeover of Chrysler.  2011 will possibly see a convertible version of the Fiat 500, followed by an electric version in 2012.

Consumer Guide describes it as “Retro-cute, fun-to-drive small, and super-stingy with gas.” Expected US price: About $15k.
