The organizers for the 2012 Los Angeles Auto Show have announced that among the new model debuts at the LA show this year will be the all electric Fiat 500E – giving the Chrysler Group their first electric vehicle and helping them show some support for the EV movement even though Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne seems less than enthusiastic about the project.

Considering the absurd laws in California that push new car buyers towards electric vehicles it comes as no great surprise that the production level Fiat 500E will make its debut in the City of Angels. The LAAS organizers expect this to be a huge year for electric vehicles as well as hybrids and the Fiat 500E is just one of three new EVs to debut in late November (along with the Ford Focus Electric and another unnamed model).
