Fiat reveals Uno Ecology concept

Fiat has unveiled a concept study of the new Fiat Uno, called the "Uno Ecology", a green proposal that uses renewable materials and comes with reduced emission and improved fuel economy.

The Uno Ecology uses a modified version of the standard car's 1.0-liter flex-fuel gasoline engine, equipped with Fiat's stop-start technology.

Other features include photo-voltaic cells on the roof that use solar light to power various systems of the car. The interior features recyclable materials such as coconut fibres, and recyclet PET.

Measuring 3,770mm in length, 1,643mm in width and 1,490mm in height, the Fiat Uno Ecology was designed over the last 14 months by a Fiat engineering team in Brazil.

The new Uno will be offered with a choice a 1.0-liter petrol engine producing 73HP when running on alcohol and 75HP on gasoline, and a 1.4-liter unit delivering a maximum output of 88HP on alcohol and 85HP on gasoline. Both engines are mated to a five-speed manual gearbox that drives the front wheels.

The Fiat Uno goes on sale in Brazil this month, with other South American countries to follow in the second half of the year, but no word yet when will come to Europe.
