We’ll have to wait until the L.A. auto show later this month for more details, but Fiat has released a pair of images of its 2014 500e, an electric version of its retro-designed two-door city-car. The 500e will join the 2014 Chevrolet Spark EV as yet another West Coast “green” car debut. So far, the only market Fiat says the car will be sold in next year is California. Based on these images, we can tell that the 500e gets slightly revised bodywork (presumably for better aerodynamics) and a unique interior with transmission push-buttons where its shift lever normally resides.

OMG..., I was trying to change the radio station and pushed the wrong button and put the car in reverse. Bring back the lever.

Fiat CEO Marchionne said in February that it would start making an all-electric 500 by the end of 2012.
