With Chrysler being interested in bumping interest for the Fiat brand in the United States it’s no wonder when they resort to various marketing

Powered by rainbows and happy wishes, it seems.

The Fiat/Chrysler stand at the 2010 Detroit auto show is filled with mystery and intrigue. Well, not quite, but it is intriguing to see a Dodge Viper only a few meters (that’s how they measure things in Italy) away from a Ferrari 599XX. As for the mystery, there’s this Fiat 500 BEV.

As you’ve probably already guessed by the title of this post, neither Fiat nor Chrysler published any details on the Fiat 500 BEV concept model that was showcased alongside the 500 Abarth at the American automaker’s Detroit Motor Show stand. Nothing new here as we’re in the dark about the “Chrysler Delta” also.

The car’s name stands for Battery-Electric Vehicle and from what we’ve heard, it’s pure study as Fiat has no plans to introduce a production version of the concept – at least not in this form.

To make a short story longer, the 500 BEV features a similar bodykit to the Abarth model minus the tail pipes at the rear as well as new alloy wheels.

Inside, the concept model gets sumptuous leather seats finished in red and a sport steering wheel accented by red stitching while the traditional gear lever has been replaced with push-button controls.

Taking something that’s basically the essence of legendary cheap European mobility for the masses to the most fun filled, showoff like, money draping car show in America however seems a bit too much.
 
Even so, it didn’t stop Chrysler from giving it a go as they decided to bring the Fiat 500 to SEMA 2010.

And not just any Fiat 500, with the car being reinvented nowadays as a fashion icon it had to come with American desirability. Therefore the Fiat 500 that will be shown off in Las Vegas in a few days is going to be prepped accordingly.

The SEMA version of the Fiat 500 will be “dropped and widened”, will feature immense wheels and wide tires and a few weird modifications.

The Fiat 500 Chrysler will be unveiling at SEMA has engine bits that wear a rather interesting badge, Mopar.

That’s right, a small little European car going for sale in America with American tuning, an American owner and American marketing techniques for an American audience.

Small and cute, Honda’s EV-N battery-powered concept super-mini is set to make its world debut at Honda’s Tokyo Motor Show stand next month. While those familiar with European models may see a pinch of Autobianchi A112 and bit of Fiat 500 (the new one) in the EV-N, the fact is that Honda’s inspiration for the styling came from its own N360 – a tiny kei car of the late 1960s that was powered by a motorcycle-based, 354 cc, air-cooled 2-cylinder engine producing 22 kW at 8 500 rpm.

Honda is still holding most details on the four-seater (we gather that the rear seats are only for kids) EV-N for the Tokyo Show presentation, but we do know that the retro-tastic mini gets an electric motor and a lithium-ion battery that is charged, in part, from the solar cells located on the roof

Now that’s a recipe for success.
