The 2012 LA Auto Show will feature three fresh Fiat 500 vehicles, one of them the 500e electric car. The sub-compact’s specs have not been revealed by Fiat yet, but the EV will sport a new wheel style as well as a new front bumper. Fiat spokespersons have gone on record saying that the tiny EV will be in California showrooms sometime in 2013. One of the Fiat 500e’s main competitors will also debut at the LA event, namely the Chevy Spark EV, itself a major entry into the alternative fuel market by General Motors.
