Battery-powered Fiat Fiorino van may launch by the end of 2008

Despite an earlier report that an electric version of the new Fiat Fiorino van would appear by February of 2008, it now looks like it won't go into production for at least another year. The lithium ion-powered Fiorino should have a sixty-mile range and 50 mph top speed. The electric van will give Fiat an appealing entry for cities like London that have congestion charges. The congestion charges are typically waived for zero or ultra-low emission vehicles. No price has been determined for the electric van although the 1.4L gas version is €9,100 and the 1.3L diesel goes for €11,050.
