Fiat is going all green, realising that eco friendlyness is the new trend in car manufacturers. The Italian producer has just annonuced that it will premiere its new line of eco friendly cars entitled PUR-O2 where else than in Paris, next week. The models selected to be in the first batch of green-er cars will be the hit retro car, the 500, their contender to the title of hot hatch, the Bravo and the Croma. Each of them will have special features and will be branded with the PUR-O2 badge. The features that will make the cars more economical are a new, special, Bosch made Star&Stop system, special low rolling resistance tires, an aerodynamic body kit which will improve airflow, and tweaked up gearboxes which will improve the fuel efficiency.

Of course the most talked about model which will be graced with the PUR-O2 badge is the 500. Although speculations have been made that Fiat had a hybrid version of the little car in the works, this is as close as they got to that goal. The car will be powered by Fiat’s 1.2 litre petrol engine which will develop only 119 gr/km of CO2 emissions. As of the moment, these are the only data we have on these future models, but be sure to check back for our full coverage of the Paris show starting next week.
