    Chrysler is very lucky they found a new partner.

    They gave Fiat 35% equity and 3 board seats and got no cash. And, it is contingent on another $4B in US taxpayer funds being loaned to Chrysler. I'm not sure I get it.

    If the fundamental problem is overcapacity in the industry, bringing new capacity into the market will make things worse

    Fiat/Chrysler plans electric car - Autocar.co.uk

    The 500 has been a huge seller for Fiat, so if done right this could be a good introduction to EVs for a lot of people.
