Fiat has issued a few teaser photos of the 2014 Fiat 500e battery-electric vehicle ahead of the Los Angeles Auto Show. Changes include a sleeker all-around look, new wheel choices and a redesigned front.
Instead of a body-color-surrounded grille, Fiat goes with an accenting color that stretches from the bumper to the lower front lip of the 500. In the teaser photo this is white, making the change stand out even more.
The 500e gets new wheel choices and new character marks behind the doors by the rear tire. A Fiat 500e badge is also added.
Inside, we see a push-button transmission for the first time, and what looks to be a pure white color scheme, as opposed to the off-white in our long-term tester — a "500e" logo sits on the dashboard.

Leonard, where the heck do you find gas that cheap OR a Lincoln that gets 50 mpg?
Electric Cars are NOT environmentally sound, heavy metals from the batteries eventually will make it into the land-fills and water tables.... the green-house gases used to produce the electricity to charge the batteries also should be taken into account. In the end, continue to improve efficiency in current gas powered cars and keep researching fuel cells using hydrogen and oxygen......
