Fiat Uno Ecology Concept unveiled

Article by Christian A., on August 27, 2010

Only days after the official presentation of Fiat's new supermini in Brazil, Fiat unveiled the Uno Ecology, a concept study of the new 2011 Fiat Uno. This green car utilizes renewable materials, and boasts to offer lowered emissions and an improvement in fuel economy. Details are still a bit sketchy but so far, we know that the Uno Ecology is equipped with a revised version of the standard car's 1.0-liter flex-fuel gasoline engine that uses Fiat's stop-start technology.

At the roof of the Fiat Uno Ecology, there are photo-voltaic cells that use solar light to power some systems of the car. For its interior, we see a smattering of renewable and recyclable materials such as coconut fibers and recycled PET.

The car is actually a product of Brazil from start to finish. It was conceived and built in Brazil, and Brazilian materials, workforce and technology were used. Later this month, the conventional Fiat Uno will go on sale in Brazil. The other South American countries will follow in the second half of the year.

The new Uno, which measures 3,770mm in length, 1,643mm in width and 1,490mm in height, is slotted between the Panda and the Punto EVO when considering the dimensions only. Buyers can choose from two new flex-fuel petrol engine -- a 1.0-liter unit delivering 73 hp when running on alcohol and 75 hp on gasoline, and a 1.4-liter unit producing a maximum output of 88 hp on alcohol and 85 hp on gasoline.
