Fiat Criticized For Not Making EVs and Hybrids

Italian online publication Quattroruote has recently reported that Corrado Clini, the minister of the environment from the peninsula, has very publicly criticized Fiat for not investing in electric and hybrid car technology. This is despite the car company having a number of small and efficient diesel on the road today.

The Fiat attack is also linked with the Italian truck drive strike that has left the country’s gas stations a bit dry. Clini says the automaker has missed out on a great opportunity, and as a result Italy will be forced to import such green vehicles.

Clini also mentioned the Fiat Multipla hybrid that was unveiled at the 2000 Geneva Motor Show, saying that if they had continued on the path, they would have been market leaders.
