Chrysler will show electric Fiat 500

Chrysler will show off two vehicles at next month's Detroit auto show hinting at future collaborations under Italy's Fiat S.p.A, according to two sources familiar with the plans. Appearing on the Chrysler stand will be:

— An electric version of the Fiat 500 minicar.

— A Lancia Delta mid-size hatchback with a Chrysler grille.

Chrysler has no immediate plans to sell either of the vehicles in North America, said the sources, who declined to be identified. CEO Sergio Marchionne plans to gradually merge the Lancia and Chrysler brands. They are both under the guidance of brand CEO Olivier Francois, appointed in the aftermath of Fiat taking control of the U.S. automaker following its U.S.-steered rescue and bankruptcy this spring.
