   After celebrating Barbie‚Äôs 50th anniversary with a pink 500 last week (below), Fiat has announced that British top model Jodie Kidd was the first Briton to take part in the company‚Äôs Eco test drive, highlighting the benefits of environmentally friendly motoring.
   Customers who visit a participating Fiat dealer will be offered the opportunity to take an Eco drive. Fiat has designed a program for its Blue & Me entertainment system where a driver‚Äôs techniques are measured along environmental criteria. A USB key enables the EcoDrive (eco:Drive in Fiat‚Äôs spelling) system to record the information. The key is then inserted into a computer where the driver‚Äôs style is analysed and tips are given.
   The Fiat 500, Grande Punto and Bravo models are EcoDrive-enabled.
