segment with almost 80 percent of the cars sold in the boot peninsula already running without
. Now, Fiat is working on their own home-grown
system that could be on sale by 2011. With the goal of having the lowest CO
of any European car-maker, Fiat is developing their hybrid powertrain to work with both gasoline and diesel engines. Fiat is working on systems for both small cars and vans with the former being paired with the new 900cc two cylinder and dual clutch transmission that is coming for the 500. That system could yield CO
emissions under 90g/km which would challenge the
CDI. For vans, Fiat has a system that will be used with a 2.3L diesel and automated manual gearbox.
